Mexico City, Mexico — Aeroméxico has announced that it will operate a flight to Houston, Texas, from the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) starting May.
As of May 1, Aeroméxico will start with the direct daily flight.
“Aeroméxico obtained the necessary authorization from the competent authorities of Mexico and the United States to start direct flights from the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) to the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas,” they said in a statement.
“The flights already scheduled to Houston from the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) will continue to be attended,” the airline detailed.
Aeroméxico will be able to operate this route regardless of whether or not Mexico recovers safety category 1 for the U.S. aeronautical authorities.
This is because the authorization that the airline received was given with the consideration that Aeroméxico already operates routes to that destination from the geographical area where the AICM is also located.
“After a regulatory assessment and current conditions, the U.S. and Mexican authorities approved this route considering that AIFA also serves the metropolitan area of the Valley of Mexico,” the airline explained.
With this, Aeroméxico has nine destinations from the AIFA, to which are added Acapulco, Cancún, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Mérida, Oaxaca, Puerto Vallarta and Veracruz.
The United States will be the fifth country with which the Felipe Ángeles International Airport has a connection.
Since its inauguration on March 21, 2022, AIFA also connects with Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Panama and to Havana, Cuba.
