AeroMexico is replacing Boeing 767-200ERs with Boeing 787-8s on its three weekly flights from London Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 4 to Mexico City’s Aeropuerto Benito Juárez Internacional.
According to AeroMexico, replacing 767-200ERs with 787-8 Dreamliners on its three weekly round-trips between Mexico City’s Aeropuerto Benito Juárez Internacional and London Heathrow Airport from April onwards will make the airline better equipped to satisfy increasing customer demand from the UK to Mexico.
Each Boeing 787-8 flight will offer 243 seats, 32 of them in Premier Class with flat beds, personalized on-board attention and touchscreen in-flight entertainment systems.
By replacing its 174-seat 767-200ERs with the 243-seat Boeing 787-8 widebodies, AeroMexico will increase capacity on each London-Mexico City flight by 70 seats per flight.
During 2013 AeroMexico carried nearly 40,000 passengers from London Heathrow Airport to Mexico City and vice versa. However, during 2014 the carrier expects to increase this figure by 30 per cent, to more than 50,000 passengers.
AeroMexico’s summer 2014 timetable on its Mexico City-London route calls for flight AM007 to leave Mexico City’s Aeropuerto Benito Juárez Internacional (IATA code MEX) at 11:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and arrive at London Heathrow Airport (LHR) at 4:05 p.m. the following afternoon, local time.
In the other direction, flight AM008 is timed to depart LHR at 10:35 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays and land at MEX at 5:30 a.m. the following morning, local time. On Saturdays, flight AM008 is scheduled to leave LHR at 6:60 p.m. and to reach MEX at 12:50 a.m. the following morning, local time.
