Emirates restarts operations to Mexico as of July 2


With four flights a week, Emirates plans to return to Mexico on July 2, if everything goes as planned. Scott Lanz, regional director of the airline in Mexico, assured that depending on how the situation progresses in the face of the pandemic, they will be able to gradually recover their presence in Mexico, since prior to the pandemic the airline had since December 2019 a daily flight on its route to Dubai – Barcelona- CDMX, in a Boeing 777-200 equipment with capacity for 264 passengers in economy class and 38 in first class.

Despite the fact that the Emirates is open to tourists from all over the world, the flight to Mexico has not been able to operate due to the stopover in Barcelona, ​​due to the protocols and restrictions maintained by the European Union.

Lanz assured that at the moment they only maintain two regular cargo flights a week.

Emirates will be arriving in Mexico just when the service charge for ticketing through globalizers, as we had published in REPORTUR.mx, takes effect from July 1

Lanz points out that agencies will be able to continue working with globalizers by paying an additional charge ranging from 14 to 25 USD per plane ticket, however, the manager also highlighted that there is the new platform of the Emirates Gateway airline, launched a year ago, in where agencies and operators in the country have access to a wider range of their products and rates, which also includes exclusive content not available in indirect channels, and where reservations will not imply a distribution charge.

On the other hand, the manager spoke of the strict protocols that the airline has followed for the safety of its customers and collaborators, starting with the flight personnel, pilots, and flight attendants, who have already been fully vaccinated, as well as personnel of airports on the ground.
