Querétaro-Atlanta flight reopens


The state of Querétaro announced the reopening of the Querétaro-Atlanta flight, whose operations had been halted during the Covid-19 pandemic. Aeroméxico’s vice president of sales, Pasquale Speranza, explained that the route will consist of one daily flight, which will be available again at Querétaro International Airport (AIQ) starting August 5.

The Secretary of Sustainable Development, Marco Del Prete, celebrated the reopening of said route managed by Aeroméxico-Delta, considering that it will strengthen the air offer in Querétaro, as well as the commercial and tourist exchange with the city of Atlanta, whose airport is the largest in the world in terms of passengers.

“The commercial exchange and the connectivity that will be made between global companies with Querétaro is very important. Atlanta is an advanced manufacturing center for the aerospace industry, as is Querétaro, and all this connectivity will favor the exchange and growth and investments from one side to the other,” he said.

The official highlighted that the AIQ maintains a growth in its passenger flow, with a 30% increase during May compared to the same month last year. In addition, he highlighted that currently, the airport has a 60% higher influx than in 2019, the last year before the pandemic.

He also highlighted that the second waiting room in the airport is being expanded with 500 extra spaces, in addition to the installation of two more telescopic corridors, which will provide greater comfort to passengers.

He added that with the reopening of said flight, the AIQ has already recovered 90% of the routes it had before the health crisis, only the destination to Guadalajara needs to be recovered.
