The company will operate a daily flight, starting in December, with a capacity of 264 seats in economy class plus 38 in first class. It will also allow transporting 14 tons of cargo.
Emirates, an airline based in Dubai, announced on Tuesday that it will fly from that city to the International Airport of Mexico City (AICM), with a stopover in Barcelona as of December 9.
This will be the first flight that the Arab company will make to Mexico after last September rejected its entry into the country for the lack of ‘slots’-hours of operation in the AICM.
In a statement, the airline said it will operate a daily flight with a Boeing 777-200 team, which has the capacity of 264 seats in economy class, as well as 38 more in first class.
In addition, the flight will allow, he explained, transport up to 14 tons of cargo, which will open the exchange of Mexican merchandise of avocado, berries, mangoes, medical clothing, as well as auto parts.
“We are very happy to be able to introduce new air connectivity between Dubai and Mexico. The availability of high quality daily international air services is essential for the development of tourism, business, and cultural ties, “said Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airline.
The president of the airline said that the Mexican government supports the introduction of this new flight, which “responds to the tourist policy” led by Miguel Torruco.
In this regard, the head of the Ministry of Tourism (Sectur) posted on his Twitter account: “We will receive tourists from this part of the world with open arms.” This after the announcement of the new route.
Emirates flight EK 255 will depart from Dubai at 3:30 local time, arrive in Barcelona at 8:00 before leaving again at 9:55 and arrive in Mexico City at 4:15 pm on the same day.
