AeroMexico Connect to launch flights between New Orleans, Mexico City and Honduras
AeroMexico plans to launch six weekly, non-stop flights on 6 July between New Orleans and Mexico City, with connecting flights to San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The route, to be flown by AeroMexico Connect Embraer ERJ 145s, is the first new international flight service to be announced for New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
AeroMexico sees the new route as a potential business generator for New Orleans and Southern Louisiana, Mexico and Honduras. With more than 20 million residents, greater Mexico City is the largest metropolitan area in North America with expanding business as well as cultural ties to the New Orleans area. San Pedro Sula, a city of more than one million residents, is a major transportation hub with industries ranging from coffee production to garment assembly.
