Delta Air Lines will begin a new daily Airbus A319 service in June 2019 between Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) and Mexico City in partnership with Aeromexico.

In addition, MSP offers connections to more than a dozen cities in the US and Canada not available over other Delta hubs.

Delta’s president for international and executive vice president of global sales, Steve Sear said: “We’ve heard from our Twin Cities customers that Mexico City is at the top of their most requested destinations and this new service will give them just that and more.

“At the same time, it allows for more choice and options for customers in many US and Canadian cities through one convenient, easy connection as well as easy connections to dozens of destinations in Mexico thanks to our partnership with Aeromexico.”

The new service rounds out nonstop flights operated by Delta and Aeromexico from all of Delta’s US hubs to Aeromexico’s hub at Mexico City Benito Juarez International Airport, where timed flights give customers access to not only Mexico’s largest and capital city, but dozens of destinations throughout Mexico. On a combined basis, Delta and Aeromexico offer more than 160 daily flights between the US and Mexico.

Delta’s MSP hub offers approximately 400 departures every day, connecting Minnesota to the world and moving Delta customers with ease across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia, including Tokyo-Haneda Airport.

Earlier in 2018, Delta announced new service to Seoul-Incheon airport in conjunction with partner Korean Air to begin in April 2019. Additionally, Delta announced proposed service from MSP to Shanghai to begin in 2020 subject to government approval.
