Initially, the route will have three weekly flights using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
CANCUN – Aeroméxico will operate a new seasonal route between Cancun and the city of Sao Paulo, beginning December 15 and until April 17, 2022, the airline reported Monday.
“For the Mexican Caribbean, this flight represents the increase not only in international air connectivity, but also the growth of one of our strategic markets: Brazil,” according to Quintana Roo Governor, Carlos Joaquín González.
The airline has been present in Brazil for more than two decades and, with this route, “it will increase its offer of monthly seats between the two countries by 43%,” the report stated.
“Cancun is one of the most important beach destinations in Mexico and with the highest tourist influx. We are proud to announce a direct flight between this destination and Sao Paulo, Brazil, offering our customers more and better connectivity options, ”said Giancarlo Mulinelli, Senior Vice President of Global Sales for Aeroméxico.
The manager assured that this “new flight will be an engine of economic and tourist exchange between both countries.”
“Mexico is one of the strategic markets for Brazil that has grown in recent years and one of the important accelerators has been the tourist offer that the state of Quintana Roo has. Among the main visitors to Cancun are Brazilians, ” the bulletin underlined.
This new route is in addition to those that Aeroméxico announced last week with direct flights from Guadalajara and Monterrey to Madrid.
Currently, the airline operates 82 national and international routes.
The launch comes amid the recovery of the Mexican air sector, which lost revenues of $ 9.3 billion in 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
Aeroméxico, the main airline in the country, had a 54.2% drop in passenger transport in 2020, which is why it joined Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code last June in a New York court to obtain a financial restructuring.
