ACAPULCO, MEXICO--(Marketwired - March 28, 2017) - In the framework of the 2017 "Tianguis Turistico" edition, Aeromexico, Mexico's global airline, announced that its growth strategy has allowed it to maintain its position as the largest global airline network in Mexico serving 44 domestic and 45 international destinations.
This leadership position is grounded in the carrier's strategy to continue increasing its domestic and international connectivity options along with its fleet renewal plan for its more than 130 aircraft, including the Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliner, considered the most modern commercial aircraft in the sky.
In the last two years, the airline has added 12 new international destinations to its network spanning three continents, including Boston, Medellin, Panama, Toronto, and Vancouver in 2015; Amsterdam, Austin, and Santo Domingo in 2016; and Calgary, Detroit, Seoul, and San Jose, California this year.
It is also important to note that Aeromexico's international consolidation strategy for this year, is centered on strengthening its route network with a 150% increase in the number of flights offered to Canada, a 120% increase in the number of seats offered to Asia, a 30% increase in the number of flights it operates to Europe, and a nearly 15% increase in its service to Central and South America, as the carrier maintains its position as the only Latin American airline with a presence in Asia.
In the domestic market, Aeromexico was one of the first companies to join the Viajemos Todos por Mexico (Let's All Travel Through Mexico) Program implemented by the Ministry of Tourism, reporting a 100% growth in its Gran Plan package bookings to destinations like Huatulco, Los Cabos, Merida, Puerto Vallarta, and Zihuatanejo in the First Quarter of 2017.
Thus, Aeromexico continues to significantly strengthen its flight connection network by offering customers more options with the quality service the carrier features on each one of its flights.
