It’s now easier to fly to Mexico City (MEX) from Boston (BOS), as a nonstop route has commenced between the 2 cities.

Here’s what you need to know about this exciting route — and how to book!

The Return of Aeromexico to New England

Aeromexico has resumed daily nonstop flights between Boston (BOS) and Mexico’s capital city of Mexico City (MEX).

The route comes as the Delta-Aeromexico Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA) — a partnership between the 2 airlines that offers a network of flights and reciprocal benefits — expands operations between the United States and Mexico.

The airline is flying several aircraft between the 2 cities, including the Boeing 737 and Boeing 737 MAX 8.

If you aren’t familiar, Aeromexico is Mexico’s flag carrier, based in Mexico City. It is a founding member of the SkyTeam alliance.

Aeromexico has a massive U.S. presence, and its Mexico City hub serves as the gateway to other Mexican destinations and Central and South America. Aeromexico serves a handful of established U.S. destinations to Mexico City, such as Chicago (ORD), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO), and new cities, such as Tampa (TPA).

How to Book

Flights between Boston and Mexico City are now available on Delta and Aeromexico’s websites.

If you have Delta SkyMiles, round-trip award tickets start at around 46,000 miles, plus taxes and fees.

Hot Tip:

If your balance of SkyMiles is low, you can top off your account with American Express Membership Rewards points, which transfer to Delta at a 1:1 ratio.

Award tickets are even cheaper if booking with Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Points. You’ll pay just 31,000 points round-trip, plus taxes. Virgin Flying Club points are perhaps the easiest to earn, as the program is a partner of all 6 major transferable rewards currencies: Chase Ultimate RewardsCapital One Miles, American Express Membership RewardsMarriott BonvoyCiti ThankYou Rewards, and Bilt Rewards.

Finally, if you’re paying cash, you’ll find tickets as low as $542 round-trip in economy this summer, though keep in mind that these are the most restrictive. Once you’ve picked travel dates, make sure to book your flights with a credit card to maximize flight purchases, such as The Platinum Card® from American Express, Chase Sapphire Reserve®, or the Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card.

Final Thoughts

Aeromexico has resumed service between Boston and Mexico City, which is excellent news for travelers who will no longer have to connect in Atlanta (ATL). With affordable options using miles, points, or cash, this is an excellent chance to visit CDMX on a budget!
