- Airlines enter a codeshare agreement to offer Aeroflot customers connections to Mexico City via Amsterdam, London, Madrid and Paris
- Codeshare passengers also enjoy access to the benefits of both airlines’ frequent flyer programs and premium lounges, as well as SkyPriority
Moscow, January 15, 2019. – From late December, passengers travelling between Russia and Mexico have been able to connect by air more easily thanks to a new codeshare agreement signed by Aeroflot and Aeromexico.
Passengers from Moscow can reach the Mexican capital via convenient connections through a number of Aeroflot’s European destinations, including Amsterdam, London, Madrid and Paris.
The Russian flag carrier and Aeromexico have been enjoying a strong partnership for several years thanks to their membership of the SkyTeam alliance. The new codeshare agreement thus also includes the benefits offered by both airlines’ frequent flyer programs, including mileage accrual and redemption to reward customer loyalty. Programme members travelling on codeshare flights will earn miles that can be redeemed for tickets on SkyTeam airlines.
The agreement also offers customers access to exclusive SkyPriority airport services including priority check-in, boarding and baggage handling; priority lanes at ticket offices and transfer desks; and fast-track security and immigration controls to ensure a seamless travel experience.
Another benefit of the codeshare is reciprocal use of both airlines’ premium airport lounges, giving passengers the convenience of these spaces to catch up on work or just relax in comfort before departure.
Aeroflot is committed to expanding the options it offers through partnerships with major airlines worldwide to ensure passengers are able to travel further each day.
Aeroflot is Russia’s flagship carrier and a proud member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance. Aeroflot serves 152 destinations in 55 countries.
Aeroflot’s 253-strong fleet is the youngest of any airline worldwide that operates more than 100 aircraft. In 2017, Aeroflot carried 32.8 million passengers (50.1 million passengers as Aeroflot Group including subsidiaries).
