AeroMexico is launching daily service in May between Mexico’s capital Mexico City and the capitals of two other countries in the Americas – Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States, and El Salvador’s capital San Salvador.
The airline’s daily flight from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) will offer connections to more than 40 cities in Mexico and 11 countries in Latin America, including the new Mexico City-San Salvador flight, at AeroMexico’s hub at Terminal 2 at Mexico City’s Aeropuerto Benito Juárez Internacional (MEX).
AeroMexico will begin its Mexico City-San Salvador service on May 7 and its Mexico City-Washington Dulles flight on May 21. It will operate the latter service with Boeing 737NG equipment.
The carrier’s Mexico City-Washington Dulles Service is timed to leave MEX daily at 8:35 p.m. and land at IAD at 1:55 a.m. local time. In the other direction, the flight is scheduled to depart IAD at 7:00 a.m. and touch down at MEX at 10:45 a.m. local time.
From May 7, AeroMexico’s daily service between Mexico City and San Salvador will see its daily flight push back from the gate at MEX at 1:20 p.m. and arrive at San Salvador’s El Salvador International Airport (IATA code SAL and commonly known as Comalapa International Airport or Cuscatlán International Airport) at 2:40 p.m. local time.
In the other direction, AeroMexico’s daily flight will leave SAL at 3:40 p.m. and touch down at MEX at 7:08 p.m. local time. The carrier says its new service reinforces its already robust connectivity to Central America.
