AEROMEXICO REAFFIRMS COMMITMENT TO BRING INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE SERVICE BACK TO NEW ORLEANS ON JULY 7
Airline to Serve Market with Six Weekly Non-Stop Flights to Mexico City
And Convenient Connecting Service to San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Houston, Texas (May 19, 2009) – AeroMexico, the global airline of Latin America, reaffirmed today its commitment to bring international service back to New Orleans. Beginning on July 7, the airline plans to provide six weekly non-stop flights on Sunday to Friday between New Orleans and Mexico City with convenient connecting service to San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Frank Galan, Vice President, U.S. Division, AeroMexico, said “AeroMexico is moving forward as scheduled to add this important route to our North American operations. We have met again with city and airport officials in New Orleans and all agree these flights are vitally important and are needed now. This route will be the fastest way to travel between New Orleans, Mexico City and Honduras, which will make it much more convenient for people to visit family and friends, take vacations and conduct business between these international markets.

“We are also confident that it is a good time to travel. Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization see no reason for international travel restrictions related to the H1N1/swine flu since this recent health situation is being addressed effectively,” he said. “Because the safety of the traveling public is AeroMexico’s top priority at all times, our airline also has comprehensive procedures in place for their well being.”

The airline believes that significant market demand exists for the route due to expanding business, cultural and tourism ties between these markets and New Orleans’ reemergence following Hurricane Katrina.

Market demand in the greater New Orleans area for these flights is also increasing because the Hispanic population in New Orleans, which now approaches 250,000, is the fastest growing of any major U.S. city. The area also has one of the largest Honduran populations, estimated at more than 80,000, in the United States.

Economic ties between these markets are also expanding and will benefit from this new airline service, according to Greater New Orleans Inc., the region’s economic development organization. Additionally, the Mexico Tourism Board and the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau are eager to pursue increased international tourism opportunities that this new airline service will create.

AeroMexico and its subsidiary, AeroMexico Connect, currently operate more than 600 daily flights through the airline’s new Terminal 2 at its Mexico City International Airport hub to more than 45 destinations in Mexico, 16 U.S. locations in 11 states, two cities in two Canadian provinces, and 12 major cities that include Buenos Aires, Paris and Tokyo in 11 other countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia. U.S. cities served are Los Angeles, Ontario (Ca.), San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle-Tacoma, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Denver, San Antonio, Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, New York City, Orlando and Miami. AeroMexico Vacations provides customized vacation travel packages throughout this network. The airline also offers connecting service to other international destinations through its SkyTeam global airline alliance with 11 full member carriers and three associate carriers. AeroMexico has been recognized for its award-winning style of personalized in-flight service, one of the world’s best on-time flight records, the highest safety and quality standards ratings, outstanding reliability and baggage handling performance, and exceptional value based on its competitive fares and superior service.
