Mexico City, Mexico — Aeroméxico has said it will start operating from the Felipe Ángeles International Airport beginning April, despite saying last year, that they would not.
After announcing last year in November that they would not be flying out of the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) once complete, they now say that they will be offering daily connections with the cities of Mérida and Villahermosa from AIFA.
In their statement, the CEO of the company said that the announcement occurs at the end of its restructuring process under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Law in the United States.
“The decision is the result of the analysis of the network, location and customer needs, as well as the use of the airport infrastructure in this terminal, which opens as a new option for air connectivity to and from the center of the Mexican Republic,” explained Andrés Conesa.
Andrés Conesa, CEO of Grupo Aeroméxico said that this announcement is possible thanks to the efforts of all those who make up Grupo Aeroméxico.
“We are in the final stage of a deep process of restructuring and transformation that will allow us to come out stronger and make decisions like this for the benefit of the connectivity of our country, the service to our clients and the generation of jobs,” he said, adding that the new routes will connect the airline from Mexico City with 43 national destinations.
With Aeroméxico, there are now three airlines that have said they will operate from the AIFA, offering flights to six national destinations. AMLO has said that the airport is on time and will open as scheduled in March of this year.
