Mexico, Jun 11 (Notimex).- Aeromexico celebrates 10 years of its Mexico City-Shanghai route, with the commitment to continue improving its products, itineraries and services to promote tourism and trade between Mexico and China.
This was stated by the Executive Director of Income of the airline, Anko van der Werff, who said that Shanghai is not only the commercial and financial center of China, but also an important center of economic operations worldwide.
"The Shanghai route has played an important role in promoting economic, cultural and tourism development between both cities," he said in a statement.
He reported that Aeroméxico officially started this route in 2008, becoming the first direct flight from Latin America to the Asian continent, which shortened procedures, allowing passengers to travel between Mexico, Latin America and China without an American visa.
"The great development of Aeromexico in the last decade would not have been possible without the support of governments, partners and friends. In addition, he expressed that they hope to continue with a joint development so that these countries strengthen their bilateral relationship, "he said.
He recalled that Aeroméxico is the only airline in Latin America with direct flights to Asia since 2006, operating routes from Mexico City to Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.
During 2016 and 2017, the products most transported from China to Mexico were high technology, such as cell phones, tablets and auto parts, whose final destination were the main Mexican production and manufacturing companies.
"The most peculiar cargo that we have transported from Mexico to China were live turtles, contributing to the preservation of marine life and aquatic species," he said.
