Aeromexico Mexico City to Amsterdam
Combining iconic elements of both countries (Dutch Delft pottery with a Mexican cactus) resulted in this unique cake. On hand to try a piece at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol were: Dolf Hogewoning, Ambassador of The Netherlands to Mexico; Jos Nijhuis, CEO, Schiphol Airport; Anko van der Werff, Chief Revenue Officer, Aeromexico; and Eduardo Ibarrola, Ambassador of Mexico to The Netherlands. The thrice-weekly service will complement KLM’s existing daily service between Mexico City and Amsterdam. There were also Mexican-themed celebrations on the aircraft in Amsterdam before it left for the return flight to Mexico City.
- Aeromexico has enhanced its European network with the introduction on 29 May of thrice-weekly flights from Mexico City (MEX) to Amsterdam (AMS). The 9,201-kilometre route (the airline’s second longest after its Tokyo Narita service) will be flown using the SkyTeam member’s 243-seat 787s. The route is already flown nine times weekly by fellow SkyTeam carrier KLM. Amsterdam becomes the airline’s fourth destination in Europe after London Heathrow, Madrid and Paris CDG. Anko van der Werff, Aeromexico’s Chief Revenue Officer, said: “Aeromexico is extremely proud to add Amsterdam to its European route network. The Netherlands is Mexico’s fourth largest trading partner in the EU, and nowadays, an average of 200,000 annual passengers travel between both capital cities. With this flight, Aeromexico will be able to offer quality service to all of its customers travelling from the Netherlands on board our Boeing 787 aircraft with greater connectivity options to the main cities in Mexico, such as Guadalajara, Monterrey and Puerto Vallarta, and in Central and South America, including San Jose, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama.” See how Amsterdam’s FTWA compares to other from around the world this week.
