Delta Adds Minneapolis-St. Paul to Mexico City Route

Delta will launch daily service between Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and Mexico City on June 8.

The flights will use 124-seat Airbus A319 aircraft. They will depart MSP at 8:50 a.m. and arrive in Mexico City at 1:01 p.m. Flights will depart Mexico City at 2 p.m. and arrive at MSP at 6:14 p.m.

Through Delta’s agreement with AeroMexico, from Mexico City travelers can connect to 41 other destinations in Mexico and Latin America. Brian Ryks, CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, said Mexico City is just the latest in a string of international destinations to which the Minneapolis-St. Paul area has added air service. He said that on average 700 people a day travel from MSP to Mexico. This new service and the connections from Mexico City to destinations beyond, said Ryks, “will make travel between Minnesota and locations south of the border easier and more convenient.”
