Emirates has launched a daily service from Dubai to Mexico City International Airport, via the Spanish city of Barcelona.
The service operates with a two-class Emirates Boeing 777-200LR and offers up to 14 tonnes of cargo, opening up access to more global markets for Mexican exports such as avocados, berries, mangoes, automotive parts and medical supplies.
Sir Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airline commented: “We are excited to be able to introduce new air connectivity between Dubai and Mexico. The availability of high-quality, daily international air services is essential for the development of tourism, business and cultural ties. Trade, especially in high-value and time-sensitive products, will be facilitated by the ample cargo capacity on Emirates’ Boeing 777 aircraft. We also expect tourism to receive a major boost from the daily flights on our newly-refurbished Boeing 777-200LR.”
“Emirates’ arrival will bring a significant contribution to our international connectivity network by adding up daily services to Dubai and beyond. Emirates will be the 43rd carrier operating international flights into Mexico … congratulations!!”, added Rodrigo Vasquez C, Director General, Mexican Civil Aviation Authority.
