Aeromexico has launched its third new route in a week, with intentions to operate a seasonal service between the Mexican tourist resort of Cancun and the Brazilian city of So Paulo.

The flag carrier has served Brazil for more than two decades, and this new route will expand the airline’s total monthly seats between the two countries by 43%.

Flights will run between Cancun (CUN) and So Paulo Guarulhos (GRU) from December 15 to April 17, 2022. The service will be provided three times a week on Boeing 787 aircraft.

“This flight represents not only an expansion in international aviation connectivity for the Mexican Caribbean, but also the rise of one of our strategic markets: Brazil,” said Carlos Joaquin Gonzalez, governor of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, which includes Cancun.

“With the introduction of this route, we will be able to minimize the distance between us and South America, thereby boosting the tourist reactivation that we have been working on in a methodical and systematic manner.”

Aeromexico stated in a statement that its Brazilian services had seen “significant growth” in recent years, with one of the key drivers being the state of Quintana Roo’s tourism offering.

The SkyTeam alliance member now operates daily 787-9 service to GRU from Mexico City (MEX), offering about 4,000 two-way weekly seats.

According to OAG Schedules Analyzer data, LATAM Airlines Group serves the CUN-GRU market twice a week with 767-300 aircraft. The schedule, however, is only in effect until September 26.

Prior to the pandemic, GOL Linhas Aereas also operated flights to Cancun from Brasilia (BSB). Although service on the route has been discontinued since March 2020, it is expected to restart in November.

Aeromexico’s new connection to So Paulo is set to debut just days after the carrier announced two new routes to Madrid (MAD) in December.

Flights to Madrid will be available from both Guadalajara’s Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International (GDL) and Monterrey International (MXY) (MTY). Each route will be served three times each week by 787s.

Furthermore, the airline has confirmed the expansion of a codeshare arrangement with LATAM Airlines Group, which would add 18 new Peruvian destinations to its network. Aeromexico’s AM code will be used on LATAM domestic trips to cities such as Arequipa, Chiclayo, and Jauja. In turn, LATAM passengers will have access to more than 40 Aeromexico-served points in Mexico.
