AUSTIN (KXAN) — Aeromexico’s new nonstop flights between Austin and Mexico City are scheduled to start on Nov. 17, the airline announced Tuesday.
From Austin, the flights will depart Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 1:09 p.m., arriving in Mexico City at 3:33 p.m. Return flights from Mexico City will depart on the same days at 9:30 a.m., arriving in Austin at 11:53 a.m.
Around 6,500 seats are available between Texas and Mexico on Aeromexico flights each week on average.
“With the inauguration of this new service, Aeromexico adds its 17th destination in the United States, consolidating its position as the leading airline in Mexico with the largest presence in North America,” said Anko Van der Werff, Chief Revenue Officer, at Aeromexico.
Mayor Steve Adler said, “This new direct flight links our two capitals and brings Mexico City’s ancient pyramids that much closer to our statues of Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Welcome, Aeromexico.”
Another new international nonstop flight was announced earlier this summer. Condor Airlines is operating a seasonal route between Austin and Frankfurt, Germany. The first flight took off on June 27.
Volaris began nonstop flights between Austin and Guadalajara this week.
