UK-Mexico flights to boost trade
A new London-Mexico City air service will start just before Christmas.
In a boost to UK-Mexico trade links, Aeromexico will begin flights between Heathrow and the Mexican capital on December 15.
Four years in the making, the flight deal will see the carrier operating three flights a week.
Heathrow chief executive Colin Matthews said: “We are delighted that Aeromexico is coming to Heathrow, and we would like to welcome more flights that could bring growth and jobs to the UK.
“The centre of gravity in the world economy is shifting and Britain should be forging new links with economies like Mexico. But with this single deal taking four years to complete, the UK’s lack of hub airport capacity is causing us to fall further behind the rest of Europe.”
Aeromexico chief executive Andres Conesa said: “Our new flight to Heathrow is a great achievement for us and represents clear evidence of the development of the Mexican airline industry.
“We are confident that our operations will have a significant positive effect for both economies and will strength our financial and cultural relationship. We are also glad to announce that the route will operate in 2013 with our first Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the newest, best and most-efficient aircraft ever built.”
