Aeromexico seeks clarity on Emirates' permissions to operate Spain-Mexico services

6 August, 2019

Aeromexico CEO Andres Conesa commented on Emirates' plans to launch Dubai-Barcelona-Mexico City service, stating "We asked the Mexican authorities to present to us which documents the foreign carrier has acquired" (Milenio, 06-Aug-2019). He added that "if they want to operate Mexico-Dubai, do it. We do not have any issue with Mexico-Dubai... But we do have an issue with Mexico City-Barcelona... [Emirates] are not Mexican and they are not Spanish". Mr Conesa is seeking clarity on whether or not Emirates commenced reservation for the service without the appropriate permissions.
