Mexico City to welcome Air France AirBus A380 inaugural flight on January 12, 2016. The flight is scheduled to land in Mexico’s Benito Juarez International Airport, to start three times weekly, and after March on a daily basis. The Secretariat of Communications and Transportation began work to prepare the airport facility and runway for the large aircraft, which will carry 560 passengers from Paris to Mexico City. However, this is not the first time that Mexico greets the Airbus flight A380: the first flight landed in Cancun in 2013.
Another major flight trend is the Southwest non-stop flights from Houston to Mexico City, Cancun, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta. The Southwest flight from Cancun was landed in Houston Hobby last week, in Southwest’s five gate terminal that was recently inaugurated after construction operations since 2013.
Southwest expects to transport approximately four thousand passengers per month from Houston to Mexico City on non-stop flights.
