ONTARIO >>For the first time in 15 years, international travelers can book a flight from L.A./Ontario International Airport to Mexico City.
The Mexican air carrier AeroMexico announced this morning it will offer four weekly roundtrip flights beginning on April 6.
“We’re excited to see the return of Mexico City service, especially as the spring and summer seasons approach,” said ONT’s manager Jess Romo in a statement.
The last time the carrier offered service to the capital of Mexico was in 2000.
AeroMexico already has four flights a week to Guadalajara. For a couple of years, AeroMexico was not only been the lone international service out of ONT but the only carrier to serve the Hispanic market in the Inland Empire. Low-cost carrier Volaris began service at ONT last April with two weekly flights to Guadalajara. In September, the carrier added a third flight to the same route. San Bernardino County is considered by Volaris to be “a transborder” destination with larger Mexican populations. According to the carrier, there are 1.7 million in San Bernardino County.
