Emirates and Viva Aerobus Sign Interline Agreement to Enhance Connectivity to Mexico

Emirates and Viva Aerobus have signed an interline agreement to enhance connectivity for passengers traveling to Mexico. This partnership will allow Emirates customers to travel from Mexico City to 21 domestic destinations, all while enjoying the convenience of a single baggage policy and a unified ticketing system.

The interline agreement also expands international travel options for Emirates customers, providing 20 convenient flight connections between six points in Mexico and several popular American cities. Interline tickets are now available for immediate travel, and itineraries can be booked on emirates.com, the Emirates app, and through preferred travel agencies.

Passengers flying from Dubai to Mexico City can now continue their journeys to 21 additional domestic destinations, including Acapulco, Cancun, Guadalajara, and Monterrey. The interline network also offers direct flights from U.S. cities such as Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Orlando, and Miami to select destinations in Mexico. Additionally, travelers from Mexico City can fly directly to Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York JFK, or San Antonio.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer, said, “We are pleased to activate an interline partnership with Viva Aerobus to deepen our reach into Mexico, beyond Mexico City. This new partnership provides our customers with more choice to suit their travel plans and enables customers to seamlessly fly to a host of unique destinations in Mexico. Emirates customers can also now fly directly between select US points and cities in Mexico. This new offering is in line with our Fly Better promise and convenience that can be felt by our customers when flying with us and we look forward to further developing the partnership in the future to elevate its benefits to our customers.”

Javier Suarez, Executive Vice President & Chief Planning and Alliances Officer at Viva Aerobus, added, “We are excited about this new partnership with Emirates. Connecting Emirates’ route from Barcelona with our Mexico City network of routes allows Emirates’ passengers to seamlessly reach many other destinations in Mexico and the US. Equally, this opportunity allows passengers from many Mexican cities to make a short stop in Mexico City, board an Emirates flight to reach the great city of Barcelona and/or to continue their trip to Dubai and beyond. All of this with the convenience of buying a single ticket.”

Emirates customers can enjoy a premium travel experience with elevated comfort, world-class dining, in-flight entertainment, and other thoughtful amenities onboard its wide-body aircraft, including the Boeing 777 and the flagship double-decker A380 aircraft.

The Dubai-Mexico City route is served by the Boeing 777 aircraft in a two-class configuration. Customers with itineraries that include interline flights from select US points can look forward to superior levels of comfort and unique features of the A380 service on flights from Dubai to Los Angeles and Houston, before connecting to Viva Aerobus for flights to their final destinations in Mexico. Viva Aerobus operates a modern fleet of 83 Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, with an average age of 5.45 years, making it the most modern fleet in Mexico and the fifth youngest in all of Latin America.

Mexico is a significant part of the Emirates network, which spans almost 140 destinations. Emirates launched its services to Mexico City in 2019 and currently provides daily flights to the Mexican capital via Barcelona using the Boeing 777-200LR.

Emirates currently has commercial cooperation agreements in place with 161 interline, codeshare, and intermodal partners.
