AeroMéxico announced new daily service between Mexico City and Cozumel on Oct. 1.

The airline will deploy Embraer 145 jets with 50 passenger seats to the island resort on the Caribbean side of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The addition of Cozumel to AeroMéxico’s network reinforces the airline’s presence in both the Caribbean as nationally. It marks the 46th destination the airline serves in Mexico, which will connect with the 16 cities in the United States from where the carrier operates.

“The 700 weekly seats available on this route will have a positive impact on arrivals because travelers will now have direct access to this popular tourist spot in Cozumel, thanks to AeroMéxico’s extensive connectivity to and from 80 national and international destinations,” said Anko van der Werff, Chief Revenue Officer at AeroMéxico.

The government’s department of tourism also cheered the news.

“…We will broaden our tourist destinations, inviting more visitors to enjoy this island’s beautiful beaches, turquoise waters, breathtaking sunsets, along with the warmth of its people; not to mention countless activities and experiences like scuba diving, snorkeling, archeological excursions or visiting downtown and the iconic waterfront, El Malecon” said Carlos Manuel Joaquin Gonzalez, Deputy Secretary of Tourism Development and Innovation of the Department of Tourism.

“We will strengthen our domestic flight connectivity, particularly in the Mexican Caribbean, with this route and more. SECTUR welcomes this flight which helps to position Mexico in the national and international tourism landscape,” added the deputy.

AeroMéxico is the country’s top airline with over 35 percent market share.
