“The addition of Calgary to our route network in Canada strengthens our presence by providing another travel option to Central Canada. Aeromexico currently serves the four largest cities in Canada, establishing us as one of the best options to travel directly from Mexico City to the province of Alberta while allowing our customers traveling from Canada to connect to Leon (Bajio), Guadalajara, Puerto Vallarta, among the 44 destinations we serve in Mexico," said Anko van der Werff, Aeromexico's chief revenue officer.

"This destination is known for its growing oil and gas industry, and is ideal for business travelers looking to fly directly to Calgary without having to stop in other cities in Canada. Calgary is also a hub where our codeshare partner WestJet allows us to aggressively expand connectivity options to 35 destinations nationwide." Anko said.

“Aeromexico’s new daily non-stop service from YYC Calgary International Airport to Mexico City provides an important new link to a growing business market, allowing a number of industries in our province to benefit from a direct connection to one of Canada’s largest trading partners,” said Bob Sartor, president and CEO for The Calgary Airport Authority.

“As our city and province works to diversify the economy, YYC will continue to play a significant role in driving the economy forward by creating new business and tourism opportunities through our extensive route network.”

“Increasing air access to keep the province competitive in the market place is essential as our government works to strengthen and diversify Alberta’s economy. Alberta is ready to welcome more visitors, investors, and trade partners from Mexico,” said Alberta Culture and Tourism Minister Ricardo Miranda. “This new, direct route is estimated to create more than 300 jobs and generate $46 million in economic output for the province, putting Alberta on the map as a world-class tourism destination and a great place to invest. Bienvenido a Alberta!”

In 2011, Aeromexico started to serve the Canadian market with direct service to Montreal and in just six years has expanded its presence to the country's Central, Western and Eastern provinces. In addition, as of June 19 this year, Aeromexico will increase service to two daily flights from Mexico City to Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, for the summer season through August 20, offering more than 9,900 seats per week and more than 60 nonstop flights to Canada.
