Aeromexico adds two new international destinations from Mexico City to South America: Guayaquil, Ecuador, starting May 1, and Cali, Colombia, as of May 16.
Guayaquil is the second destination in Ecuador for Aeromexico, where it began operations more than five years ago servingQuito. This new service will be operated with three direct weekly flights on Boeing 737-800 aircraft models with 160 passenger seats, including 16 in Clase Premier (Aeromexico Business Class Cabin).
Cali becomes the airline’s third city in Colombia, in addition to Bogota and Medellin, which were inaugurated in 2010 and 2015, respectively. The flight will be operated four times weekly on Boeing 737-700 aircraft, with 124 passenger seats, including 11 in Clase Premier.
Anko van der Werff, Executive Vice President of Global Sales at Aeromexico, said: “At Aeromexico, we are proud to offer Mexicans and travelers with connecting flights more options towards new destinations in Latin America. We have been operating for more than 20 years in South America, flying to seven major cities, which makes us the airline in Mexico with a major presence in this region”.
Santiago de Guayaquil, known as the ‘Pearl of the Pacific’ for its large ports and gorgeous surrounding beaches, is located on the Pacific coast of Ecuador. Guayaquil is the country’s financial hub and one of Latin America’s largest maritime ports. The city’s cuisine features a large assortment of dishes from ceviche, seafood, stews, savory consommé, fried meats, roasted pork, yogurt, and Ecuadorian yucca bread.
These new routes represent the airline’s constant effort to offer customers increased connectivity and more tourism and business opportunities between these countries. Aeromexico adds these new flights to a network of 93destinations, including 50 international routes to three continents.
