“We are extremely proud and grateful to be the airline of choice for our partner Mega Travel. This group shows the confidence that Mexican travelers and agencies have in the reactivation of travel in the new normal, and in the hygiene and safety protocols that the different figures of the transport and tourism sectors are applying. As Turkey is one of the few countries that has opened its doors to tourism, I gladly affirm that Air France is the best option to get Mexican passengers there, safely and in strict compliance with the highest standards of disinfection. We are ready, looking forward to welcoming more Mexican citizens on board ”, stated Maud Oostenbrink, commercial director of the Air France-KLM group in Mexico.

Although Air France never stopped its operation from Mexico City, the number of frequencies to Paris was reduced in March and returned to normal, with seven weekly flights, a few weeks ago, still in the complex global context and with the travel restrictions, since its Cargo area operates actively in the midst of the pandemic, and people who meet the requirements imposed by countries around the world continue to travel. The Air France-KLM group thus continues to contribute to maintaining the country’s commercial relations and its connectivity, in its 68-year commitment to Mexico.

Yilmaz pointed out that it is time to travel to Turkey, a country that, in addition to receiving Mexicans with open arms and without any PCR test or quarantine restriction, gives tourists the confidence to arrive in a safe country, with the most strict hygiene protocols.


This departure marks a milestone for the programs that the operator maintains to Turkey and the Middle East in general since as of December 3, Turkish Airlines will also be arriving in Mexico.
