NEW YORK, NY – Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, reiterates its goal to increase connectivity in New York by starting its new daily and non-stop service to Monterrey, Mexico one of the carrier’s largest airport hubs.
From now on, the airline’s passengers can enjoy daily service between the Big Apple and Monterrey on Embraer 190 jet airliners with 99 passenger seats, 11 of which are in Clase Premier, Aeromexico’s business class cabin.
The schedules for this route are as follows:
New York – Monterrey* Monterrey – New York*
AM415 3:00 p.m. 7:17 p.m. Daily AM414 8:50 a.m. 1:51 p.m. Daily
*The schedules are provided in local time and are subject to changes without notice.
Anko van der Werff, Aeromexico EVP of Revenue Management said: “We are very proud to start operating this new flight between New York and Monterrey. This service extends our network connectivity to cities in Mexico like Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, Bajio-Leon, Queretaro, and Aguascalientes. At the same time, U.S. passengers can now connect from more destinations like Boston, Buffalo, Cleveland and Cincinnati, thanks to the Delta Air Lines codeshare flights, and to cities in Europe like Rome and Barcelona.”
Monterrey enjoys a privileged geographic location, in the north of Mexico and very close to the border with Texas. The city has earned renown worldwide for a variety of reasons, principally for its business climate with some of the leading corporates in Mexico, strong entrepreneurial culture, prestigious institutions of higher education and a world-class health sector with leading medical centers. The city has much to offer in terms of tourism – listed as one of the top three sites worldwide to practice canyoneering, and a lot of alternatives among canyons, mountains, ziplines, bungee and ponytail -, entertainment and culture, as well as extensive infrastructure for holding congresses and conventions.
“This new route creates more connectivity options between the northeastern US and the North of Mexico, to take advantage of the road infrastructure and the different domestic flights which Monterrey already has. This flight will facilitate trade opportunities between these two cities with large financial and business concentration. Monterrey has a booming industry, mainly manufacturing, food and petrochemical”, said Ambassador Sandra Fuentes-Berain, Consul General of Mexico in New York.
At the same time, Aeromexico, NYC & Company and MTB are working together to promote New York and Monterrey, in important places of both cities since late November.
“Aeromexico’s new service now provides enhanced access for more northern Mexican travelers to come to New York City’s five boroughs for business and leisure purposes,” said Makiko Matsuda Healy, Senior Vice President, Global Tourism Development for NYC & Company. “New York City is the number one U.S. destination for air travel from Mexico with 394,000 visitors anticipated this year.”
This new route is in addition of Aeromexico’s actual five daily flights from New York to Mexico City – one in codeshare with Delta Air Lines – and to its daily non-stop service to Cancun.
Terminal B at the Monterrey International Airport is one of the carrier’s main airport hubs from where Aeromexico offers direct and nonstop flights to 24 destinations. Six of these routes are in the United States, including Houston, New York, San Antonio, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Detroit, the last three operated by SkyTeam airline alliance partner, Delta Air Lines.
