On announcing the expanded service, Aeromexico's Corporate Sales Director Jorge Goytortua stated, "The great response received from our customers flying to these three Canadian cities, has led us to expand our service as we aim to meet their travel needs and consolidate Aeromexico's position in North America".

"We know that Mexicans enjoy traveling to Canada, and Canadians are also enticed by the warm weather of Mexico's beach destinations and its charming colonial cities, which is why we decided to offer our Canadian passengers greater connectivity options to our extensive route network spanning 45 cities across Mexico."

Jorge Morfin Stoopen, Destination Canada General Director for Mexico, commented: "Today, its estimated 200,000 national tourists travel to Canada every year and each month we register a 20% increase in tourism numbers. We are talking about important figures; in fact, no other country where Destination Canada has presence has seen this type of growth that compares to Mexico. With this frequency increase to Canada, Aeromexico authenticates its commitment in the development of this destination of the Mexican market".

With this expansion, Aeromexico continues to boost its network connectivity and development throughout North America and the world by providing passengers with more and better travel options.
