Mexico City to Heathrow

A route monopolised by British Airways is to have competition.  Skyteam member Aeromexico has confirmed plans to operate a three times-weekly service between Mexico City and Heathrow from 14 December.  The Mexican flag carrier will operate flights out of Heathrow’s Terminal 4, where other Skyteam members are located.

Flights will depart Mexico City on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday at 22:20, arriving into Heathrow at 15:00 the following day, with the return leg leaving London on Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 17:25, landing back into Mexico City at 00:35.

British Airways currently flies four times-weekly using a four-class B747-400.  Aircraft details have not been confirmed by Aeromexico, the carrier operating small fleets of both the Boeing 777 and 767.  It has the Boeing Dreamliner on order for the future.

Former oneworld member Mexicana had previously operated a Gatwick – Mexico City service, before suspending operations in 2010.
