AeroMexico resumes route between Guadalajara and Fresno

The arrival of AeroMexico to Fresno Yosemite International Airport was a much welcomed event. Since Mexicana’s demise, the route from Guadalajara had been left unserved. A mariachi band performed for the gathered crowd in the terminal building. Attending the ceremony were Reyna Torres Mendivil, Mexican consul; Paul Capriolio, former council member; Larry Westerlund, council member; Russell Widmar, the airport's director of aviation; Jorge Goytortua, AeroMexico's VP US; Blong Xiong, council member; Carlos Garcia, Mexican deputy consul.

  • AeroMexico launched a new service to the US on 4 April when the SkyTeam carrier connected Guadalajara (GDL), Mexico’s second-largest metropolitan area, and Fresno, CA (FAT). Flights operate daily with 124-seat 737-700s. The route to the city in northern California launches only ten days before the same route will be launched by low-cost carrier Volaris four times a week. The route was previously operated by Mexicana between March 2006 and its demise in August last year, reportedly successfully so, gaining load factors of around 90%.
