Florida’s Gulf Coast will soon have a new connection to Mexico’s capital city.

Aeromexico — the national carrier of Mexico — will launch a new nonstop service to Tampa (TPA) from its hub at Mexico City (MEX) starting July 1, 2024.

“We’re proud to welcome Aeromexico to TPA with this nonstop service to Mexico City and we are so grateful to our Tampa Bay community partners who have stepped up to ensure the success of this flight,” said Joe Lopano, CEO at Tampa International Airport.

The news comes as Mexican airlines slowly start to increase their international route networks to the U.S. after regaining a Category 1 safety rating from the FAA towards the end of 2023.

Here are the details of the new connection between Mexico and Florida.

Aeromexico’s New Service to Tampa

Floridians will welcome a brand-new, nonstop service to Mexico City this summer. When the route launches in July, it will be the only nonstop connection between the 2 cities.

Aeromexico’s new service between Tampa and Mexico City will have the following schedule:

  • Depart Tampa (TPA) 4:35 p.m. — Arrive Mexico City (MEX) 6:14 p.m.
  • Depart Mexico City (MEX) 10 a.m. — Arrive Tampa (TPA) 3:20 p.m.

Not only will this route serve as a great way for those living around Tampa to get to Mexico City, but travelers will also be able to make the most of Aeromexico’s extensive domestic network and connect to more off-the-beaten-travel destinations across Mexico.

Aeromexico will deploy its regional Embraer E190 aircraft fleet on the route, with space for 99 passengers. Up front, there are 4 rows of business class in a 1-2 configuration, except for row 1, which only has 2 seats in a 0-2 configuration. The remaining 88 economy seats are in a 2-2 configuration.

Fares are currently at their lowest, around $347 round-trip for August travel, making it a good time to escape the summer crowds of Tampa.

As an alternative, you could also use Aeromexico Club Premier Points on flights to Mexico City and beyond.

Bottom Line:

After the FAA moved Mexico up to a Category 1 safety rating in the latter half of 2022, Aeromexico has significantly increased its number of services to the U.S. including several new routes (including 1 to Raleigh-Durham) and an increase in frequencies on incumbent routes.

Final Thoughts

It’s great to see Aeromexico continue to increase connectivity months after its home nation was re-added to the Category 1 safety list. Here’s to the carrier’s continued route network growth and more connections to cities across the U.S.
