Aeromexico has launched three new routes to the US, increasing connectivity between Mexico City and North Carolina, Tampa Bay, and Washington D.C. As part of its Joint Cooperation Agreement with Delta Air Lines, the airline now offers over 90 flights per day between Mexico and the US. The new routes will operate daily using Boeing 737 and Embraer E-190 aircraft.

The first route links Mexico City International Airport to Washington Dulles International Airport, a previously served route that has been reinstated. Aeromexico faces competition from United Airlines on this route.

With these new routes, Aeromexico now offers a total of 90 flights per day between Mexico and the US across nearly 60 routes, making it easier for travelers to connect between the two countries.
