Aeromexico starts using 787 Dreamliner on flights to Shanghai


MEXICO CITY, Mexico – Aeromexico announced that it would operate its Mexico City-Shanghai route with its Boeing 787 Dreamliner, considered one of the most modern aircraft in the skies.

The aircraft is configured with 243 seats, including 32 in Clase Premier, Aeromexico’s Business Class Cabin. Some of the Dreamliner’s main benefits include extra legroom, more storage space for carry-on luggage, bigger windows that can be dimmed at the touch of a button, an entertainment system with individual touchscreens featuring 20 movies and 36 TV series, improved cabin pressurization to reduce fatigue and ease jet-lag effects, Sky Interior LED lighting, and new menus to enhance the inflight dining experience, among others.

This year, Aeromexico celebrates eight years operating this route, and currently offers three weekly flights equal to more than 1500 seats available per week for business and leisure customers traveling between these two cities.

When speaking of this new service, Aeromexico’s Corporate Sales Director Jorge Goytortua said, “Connectivity and service are currently keywords in commercial aviation, which is why Aeromexico is always looking to improve our options to offer our customers a world class travel experience”.

It is also important to note that Aeromexico will change this flight’s stop over to San José del Cabo between March 13 and July 31 this year, due to the maintenance of the runways at the Tijuana International Airport, going back to its regular scheduled stopover on August 1.

Actions like this confirm Aeromexico’s commitment to providing high quality services to its customers, as well as extensive network connectivity to more than 80 destinations including 46 cities in Mexico and 41 international cities on three continents.
Adding the Boeing 787 to this route will allow Aeromexico to offer customers the characteristic benefits the Dreamliner features.
