Delta Air Lines and its partner Aeromexico will launch a new three-times a week service between Detroit and Leon in Mexico – beginning 30 April.
Service on this new route will be operated by Aeromexico using Embraer 190 aircraft.
The state of Guanajuato, where Leon is situated, is known for its significant industrial activity, while Detroit, is the centre of the US automobile industry.
Aeromexico’s chief revenue officer, Anko van der Werff said: “We are sure that this flight will have a positive impact, especially in the automotive sector, since both Leon and Detroit are important drivers of this industry.
“Thanks to the connectivity we will offer, commerce between the two cities will be more dynamic, undoubtedly generating greater economic growth for both destinations.”
Delta’s senior vice president for global sales, Bob Somers added the new route shows the shared commitment to Detroit, Mexico and customers in both regions.
The opening of this route is part of a commitment of the Aeromexico-Delta alliance to expand its presence in both markets
