Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Deputy President, and Chief Commercial Officer expressed excitement over the deal:

“We are pleased to activate an interline partnership with Viva Aerobus to deepen our reach into Mexico, beyond Mexico City.”

“This new partnership provides our customers with more choice to suit their travel plans and enables customers to seamlessly fly to a host of unique destinations in Mexico.”

“Emirates customers can also now fly directly between select US points and cities in Mexico.”

“This new offering is in line with our Fly Better promise and convenience that can be felt by our customers when flying with us and we look forward to further developing the partnership in the future to elevate its benefits to our customers.”

Adding to this was Javier Suarez, Executive Vice President & Chief Planning and Alliances Officer at Viva Aerobus:

“We are excited about this new partnership with Emirates. Connecting Emirates route from Barcelona with our Mexico City network of routes, allows Emirates’ passengers to seamlessly reach many other destinations in Mexico and the US. Equally, this opportunity allows passengers from the many Mexican cities to make a short stop in Mexico city, board an Emirates flight to reach the great city of Barcelona and/or to continue their trip to Dubai and beyond. All of this with the convenience of buying a single ticket”.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how this interlining agreement performs from Mexico City.
