Aeromexico seeks clarity on Emirates’ permissions to operate Spain-Mexico services

    Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa commented on Emirates‘ plans to launch DubaiBarcelonaMexico City service, stating “We asked the Mexican authorities to present to us which documents the foreign carrier has acquired” (Milenio, 06-Aug-2019). He added that “if they want to operate MexicoDubai, do it. We do not have any issue with MexicoDubai… But we do have an issue with Mexico City-Barcelona… [Emirates] are not Mexican and they are not Spanish”. Mr Conesa is seeking clarity on whether or not Emirates commenced reservation for the service without the appropriate permissions.
