Aeromexico's EVP of Revenue Management Anko van der Werff said, "We are excited to add to Santo Domingo to our international route network, as the most visited tourist destination in the Caribbean, and because trade volume growth has averaged more than 8% between both countries over the last few years.

"This flight will also allow us to offer our Dominican customers improved connectivity options with a quality product from Mexico City to 46 destinations in Mexico, 16 cities in the United States, three in Canada, three in Europe and two in Asia."

The new flight will reduce current travel times for customers flying between both cities, by three hours. It will also offer streamlined connections to cities like Chihuahua, Guadalajara, Hermosillo, Merida, Monterrey, Tijuana, and Torreon, among other destinations in Mexico, and Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and San Francisco, among other destinations in the USA.

With this, Aeromexico not only strengthens its international connectivity network but also consolidates its presence in Latin America and the Caribbean while reinforcing its commitment to offer customers enhanced and better connectivity options to more than 80 cities on three continents across the globe.
