Aeromxico resumes international routes, and starts flying 737 MAX
Aeromexico, the Mexican flag carrier, is launching the second half year and the start of the summer. It will be operating international routes again and will also launch new aircraft. The airline is slowly returning to pre-pandemic levels of operation.
Aeromexico resumed operations from Mexico City on July 1, and was received at the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport, Managua (Nicaragua) with a traditional water jet. Three flights per week will be available on this route, which operates on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
A press release stated that the Mexican flag carrier has been linking Nicaragua and Mexico for over six years. The connection between the two Latin American nations was cut off by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was only restored on the 1st of each month.
Aeromexico reiterated its commitment to continuing connecting Mexico and Central America. It currently operates five destinations from Mexico City, offering more than 42,500 seats per months. The airline will be offering more than 2,700 seats per monthly on flights with its EmbraerE190 aircraft to Nicaragua.
Aeromxico has resumed flights from Mexico City to Austin, Dallas, and Houston with seven weekly flights. These can be booked through the Mexican airline or with its partner Delta Air Lines.
We are happy to be back in both cities, which allows us to offer more and better options for our customers. We will also be offering 600 flights to Texas' four major cities, including Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston, in July, Jos Zapata (Aeromxicos Vice President for Sales) stated in a press release.
Both airlines currently offer more than 40 flights between Mexico and the U.S. From their main operations centers. In July, they will be operating more than 4,500 flights which is a 91% increase compared to the previous period two years ago.
MAX: Bringing it Back
Aeromxico flew its first commercial flight last week using two of its new Boeing 737 MAX 9s. Aeromxico flight AM908 was the first to fly on the route between Mexico City, Monterrey. The registration XA–IMH was the first aircraft to touch down in Mexico. It is one of 28 new aircraft the airline will operate between now and 2022.
Aeromxicos has released a press release stating that the Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft will offer customers more space than other aircraft and WiFi.
The Boeing 737 MAX 9's lighter and more aerodynamic design means that it is more efficient than other aircraft in its class. It also emits less noise and has a lower fuel consumption.
