Mexico’s national carrier Aeromexico recently announced it is planning to increase its capacity to five major international markets during summer 2017 schedule. The airline has indicated that it will be adding seat capacity to South America, Asia and Europe.
Media reports said that Aeromexico has decided to significantly boost its flights services to Santiago, Shanghai, Madrid, London and Amsterdam on a weekly basis. The increased flight frequencies on the five routes would be representing about 40 percent of the airline’s current seat capacity on these routes, where Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircrafts are being operated.
According to the report, European destinations to be served with daily flights services from Mexico City include London Heathrow and Amsterdam. The flights on both the routes would be doubled and increase to six times weekly from the current three per week. The seat capacity to Madrid would be increased by 15 percent, with a total of 12 flights every week.
Aeromexico has also indicated that flights services to Asian destinations are also going to be increased by above 65 percent. The airline will now be operating five times per week flights to Shanghai. In South America, Aeromexico is presently offering five times per week flights to Santiago in Chile, which will now get an additional daily service as well.
Anko van der Werff, Chief Revenue Officer of Aeromexico, said, “The airline is committed to expand its network of destinations continuously with an increase in seat capacity as well. The increased capacity to five key international markets fully reflects the company’s commitment to its customers in Mexico and throughout the world.”
Aeromexico is currently expanding its fleet by adding several wide-body aircrafts. The airline is due to receive the newly purchased aircrafts by the end of 2016 and also during the first half of 2017. With the growth of aircrafts in its fleet, the airline is looking forward to provide increased connectivity to more than 80 destinations.
