Aeromexico Resumes Service Between San Francisco and Guadalajara
Delta Air Lines and their Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA) partner Aeromexico resumed service between San Francisco and Guadalajara yesterday, complementing their existing service between Guadalajara and Chicago, Fresno, Los Angeles and Sacramento.
On Thursday (October 1, 2020), Aeromexico announced that in cooperation with their Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA) partner Delta Air Lines, the carrier has now resumed service between San Francisco and Guadalajara. The added route complements the existing JCA service between Guadalajara and Chicago, Fresno, Los Angeles and Sacramento. Additionally, Aeromexico plans on increasing their October international route schedule by 30% versus September. In Thursday’s announcement, Aeromexico’s Sales Director for Mexico and JCA, José Zapata, said,
“The resumption of this route is a result of the commitment Delta and Aeromexico have to continue connecting the United States and Mexico. Today, between both airlines, we operate approximately 30 routes in both countries, and we are applying the highest standards of health and safety for our customers and our employees.”
Also commenting on Thursday’s route announcement, Jalisco’s Secretary of Tourism, Germán Ernesto Kotsiras Ralis Cumplido, added,
“In the face of the COVID19 pandemic, Jalisco made the care and safety for people a priority. Thus, health protocols were implemented and reinforced throughout the productive chain of the sector, which together with the health indicators, allow us to advance in the gradual reactivation of tourism. For this reason, I am pleased that air connectivity is now being strengthened with the restart of the Aeromexico Guadalajara-San Francisco flight, where tourists can enjoy our local destinations, a good mariachi, tequila, and a raicilla."
Guadalajara offers a rich cultural heritage and an abundance of tourist activities including the centrally located Hospicio Cabañas. The city is included on UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage of Humanity list. Additionally, Guadalajara is a modern, technological and dynamic city and home to several international companies.
