Mexicana Airlines has announced a non-stop service between Calgary and Mexico City beginning June 1, 2008. The new service will offer quick and convenient connections throughout Mexico and other countries in Latin America.
“Canada is one of the most important regions in Mexicana’s network of routes and proof of this is the growth we have had in Canada over the last 10 years,” said Jorge Goytortua, vice president West Coast USA & Canada, Mexicana Airlines. “With this new flight, we look to link not only the City of Mexico with Calgary, but also beautiful beaches and colonial cities in Mexico as well as Central and South America where Mexicana has a strong presence”.
Departing year-round from Calgary International Airport four times a week, Mexicana will operate an Airbus 319 aircraft, with a 12 seat-Executive class and 108-seat full-service hospitality class. Calgary is now Mexicana’s fourth Canadian gateway, in addition to Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.
