"These new routes will increase connectivity options between Mexico and the United States, as we offer more than 3,000 seats per week to our business and leisure customers, convenient connections will be available to Aguascalientes, Queretaro, Bajio, Hermosillo and other key cities with a strong influence on the automotive industry," said Jorge Goytortua, Senior VP Global Sales.

"Detroit adds to our destination network in the United States, and its customer flow will arrive from our main airline hubs: Mexico City and Monterrey; over 85,000 domestic automotive passengers transit between Mexico and 'The Motor City' every year," added the executive.

"Local traffic to Mexico is growing, so it makes sense that Aeromexico wants to be here in Detroit," said Airport Authority CEO Joseph Nardone. "As Michigan bounces back, we continue seeing more airlines take an interest in Detroit, which is positive economic news for our businesses and community."
