Aeromexico resumes plans for Barcelona operations upon Emirates withdrawal

    Aeromexico resumed plans to launch Mexico City-Barcelona service, following Emirates step back from previous plans to operate the route (Preferente, 25-Sep-2018). As previously reported by CAPA, Emirates was “hugely” disappointed by Mexico‘s decision to bar a daily operation of the route, allowing only three times weekly frequency. CAPA also reported in May-2018 that Aeromexico had plans for three times weekly operation with Boeing 787-8 effective from Nov-2018. The carrier suspended plans for the route upon Emirates’ proposed launch.
