Aeroméxico and Japan Airlines will tomorrow (13 February) start their codeshare agreement to more than 20 cities in Japan after first signing into a codeshare partnership back in October 2017.

Aeroméxico customers will now have the option to choose to fly on the company’s direct daily flight between Mexico City and Narita Airport in Tokyo, continuing on to points beyond Tokyo with quick and easy flight connections on Japan Airlines` extensive route network throughout Asia.

Due to new codeshare agreement, Aeroméxico said it will improve connectivity to major business centres in Japan, such as Hiroshima, Osaka, and Sapporo, opening the door for our customers to discover the charm of ancestral cities like Nagasaki, Oita, Okinawa, and Ube, among others.

Japan Airlines, on the other hand, will be able to offer customers access to increased connectivity to 30 destinations in Mexico.

Economic trade between both countries has been on the rise in recent years. There are nearly 1,180 Japanese companies with operations in Mexico, and at the end of 2017, Mexico reported $11.2 million in imports from Japan, with $5.7 million in exports, according to the latest information available.

The growth rate of Japanese passengers traveling to Mexico has also been on the rise. According to the Mexican Government, a total of 140,363 passengers from Japan entered Mexico by air between January and November 2018, representing a 3.7 per cent increase year-over-year.
