SJC‚Äôs Newest International Carrier Launches Summer Season Service to Mexico‚Äôs Capital, Joining Daily Nonstops to Guadalajara

San Jose, Calif. ‚Äì Aeromexico, Mexico‚Äôs global airline, today launched new nonstop service between Mineta San Jos√© International Airport (SJC) and Mexico City. The summer season flight operates daily from June 1 to Aug. 31, 2018.

“We are pleased to see Aeromexico, our newest international airline partner, already expanding in Silicon Valley with important nonstop service to Mexico City as we begin our peak summer travel season,” said Director of Aviation John Aitken. “Our community has responded favorably to the carrier’s nonstop service to Guadalajara which began last summer, and we expect the same warm welcome for Aeromexico’s additional and in-demand service to Mexico’s capital city.”

Aeromexico operates Boeing 737-800 aircraft with a capacity of 160 seats on this route. The service between Silicon Valley and Mexico City is increasing connectivity in both regions and encourages tourism between the two countries. The U.S. contributes about two-thirds of all inbound arrivals, making it Mexico’s prime international market.

The route has the following schedule:

San Jose, California-Mexico City*


Mexico City-San Jose, California*

AM 493 

1:40 p.m.

8:00 p.m.

The route is the sixth destination that Aeromexico serves in California, reaffirming its presence on the West Coast, the region that is home to the largest number of Hispanics in the U.S. The carrier now offers more than 33,000 seats per week.


Aeromexico is a partner to Delta Air Lines, another growing airline partner at SJC. Both carriers continue to position Mexico City as Mexico’s key hub, while always offering the best service characterizing both airlines.
