SAOC WELCOMES TWO NEW MEMBERS.
The SAOC is pleased to announce that as of July 2016, Jet Airways is member of the SAOC.
As of March 2016 Jet Airways launched a new strategic partnership with Delta and KLM where they will codeshare to 30 destinations in Europe and 11 destinations in North America. As part of the new strategic partnership, Jet Airways launched daily flights from both Delhi and Mumbai to Amsterdam. Jet Airways also launched daily flights from Amsterdam to Toronto. All flights are operated by an Airbus A330.
During the winter season this will change to a Triple 7 Boeing 777-300.
The SAOC is also pleased to announce that as of August 2016, Aero Mexico is member of the SAOC
“Aero Mexico is extremely proud to add Amsterdam to its European route network. The Netherlands is Mexico’s fourth largest trading partner in the European union and nowadays an average of 200.000 annual passengers travel between both cities.
With this flight, Aero Mexico will be able to offer quality service to all of its customers traveling from the Netherlands on board our Boeing 787 aircraft with greater connectivity options to the main cities in Mexico, such as Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Puerto Vallarta, and in Central and South America, including San Jose, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama.”
One of the key factors in establishing this new route is Amsterdam’s status as a major Sky Team hub, where KLM offers a significant number of flights within Europe. Aero Mexico is a founding member of the Sky Team airline alliance.
Aero Mexico now operates 3 times a week but will extend the service to 7 days a week in July 2017.
