Aeromexico has confirmed that starting July 1, 2024, it will begin operating daily flights to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) in North Carolina from Mexico City International Airport (MEX). This move is part of the airline’s ambitious expansion into the U.S.

Let’s take a look at the details of this exciting new route.

Aeromexico’s New Nonstop Route to Raleigh-Durham

Aeromexico’s newest route announcement comes at the heels of recent growth plans by the airline to expand its services between Mexico and the U.S. by introducing 17 new routes by 2024.

The 2 airlines — Aeromexico and Delta — maintain the most extensive network of connections between Mexico and the United States. By the summer of 2024, the alliance plans to increase its daily flights between the 2 countries to over 90, covering almost 60 different routes.

The Mexico City to Raleigh-Durham (and vice versa) nonstop flight will be available once daily, every day of the week, providing a generous monthly total of nearly 6,000 round-trip seats.

Round-trip service will operate daily at the following times:

  • Depart Raleigh-Durham (RDU) 4:30 p.m. — Arrive Mexico City (MEX) 6:35 p.m.
  • Depart Mexico City (MEX) 9:05 a.m. — Arrive Raleigh-Durham (RDU) 3:15 p.m.

Aeromexico will operate the flights with its 2-class, 99-seat Embraer E190, which includes 11 Clase Premier Business Class seats and 88 Main Cabin Economy Class seats.

“The Raleigh-Durham region and Mexico are linked by their large agricultural communities and strong business sectors, especially in the technology and furniture manufacturing industries, all with strong ties between companies in the two markets,” Aeromexico said in a statement.

Aside from the shared business interests, Raleigh-Durham, also known as The Research Triangle, is home to renowned universities such as Duke University, the University of North Carolina, and North Carolina State University, making it a gateway for international students from Mexico attending one of these institutions.

Bottom Line:

Beginning July 1, 2024, Aeromexico will launch daily nonstop direct service to Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The service, which will operate once-daily, is part of Aeromexico’s aggressive growth to offer more flights between Mexico and the United States.

Final Thoughts

Aeromexico’s ambitious expansion into the U.S. continues with the announcement of its latest new route between Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, and Mexico City. The airline’s growth strategy is centered around Delta hubs, providing passengers with increased options for seamless connections between the 2 airlines, made possible by the Aeromexico-Delta alliance.
