AeroMexico is reporting that the airline's strategic expansion in North America this year has resulted in a 30 percent increase in the total number of U.S. and Canadian markets served since January. The airline launched service in four U.S. markets – San Francisco, New Orleans, Albuquerque and Denver (seasonal) – and began its first Canadian service to Toronto and Montreal in 2009.
Adding New Orleans to the airline’s flight network holds special significance as the first new international scheduled commercial airline service in that city since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. These service launches bring the total number of North American markets served by AeroMexico to 16 U.S. cities in 11 states and two cities in two Canadian provinces.
Additionally, the airline has added routes in existing markets, which include re-establishing its San Antonio to Monterrey service in July and adding nonstop service between Las Vegas and Mexico City in January.
