MIAMI — In 2017, Aeromexico will increase flights on five of its main international routes: Amsterdam, London, Madrid, Shanghai and Santiago de Chile. This increases the seat offering by almost 40% for the five routes, all of them operated with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners.

On its European routes, Aeromexico will offer daily flights from Mexico City to Amsterdam and to London Heathrow – up from three and six flights per week, respectively. The carrier will increase its seat capacity to Madrid by 15 percent, for a total of 12 flights per week.

Aeromexico also plans to increase its service to Asian destinations such as Shanghai by more than 65 percent. In South America, Santiago de Chile is the only city with increased flights, going from five weekly to a daily service. The incorporation of the Dreamliner to the route increases the seat offer by 20% over the previous 767-300ER.

“We’re adding these flights mainly due to the growth in our wide-body fleet in the second half of the year and the first semester of 2017, giving passengers more connectivity options to our over 80 destinations,” said Anko van der Werff, Aeroméxico’s Executive Director of Revenue.

The decision to increase Aeromexico’s international presence is seen as a means to strengthen the carrier’s network and Mexico City’s hub model, thus improving connectivity.

In the coming months, Aeromexico will take delivery of the first three of 10 Boeing 787-9s on order. These new Dreamliners will further boost capacity in long-distance routes while replacing the 777-200ERs currently in service.
