Travellers looking for a getaway to the sunny climes of Mexico will have a new airline of choice out of YVR starting this coming winter.
Aeromexico announced last week it will commence, daily, non-stop service between Vancouver and Mexico City on Dec. 9.
According to YVR officials, the new carrier will add 160 jobs to the provincial economy, as well as significant taxes and revenue: $9.9 million in GDP, $3.4 million in taxes and $2.9 million in wages.
In addition to the holiday travellers, the route is expected to provide opportunities for B.C. businesses to make connections in Mexico and throughout Latin America.
