Emirates will up its frequency from 6 to 7 flights per week to Mexico’s capital city via Barcelona.

This means that the airline will be adding an extra average of 2000 seats per week between the United Arab Emirates and Mexico City.

Passengers originating from Mexico City will now have the ability to access other parts of the world, especially Asia and Australasia via its Dubai Airport, and also opening up to approximately 130 destinations worldwide.

This will benefit passengers in Mexico greatly. Meanwhile, Spanish-based passengers will also benefit from this daily flight. This service will offer flexibility for passengers in Spain, Mexico and also the UAE.
