Emirates and Mexico’s Viva Aerobus announced a new interline agreement to provide travelers with increased connectivity and travel options in Mexico and the United States.

This partnership allows Emirates passengers flying into Mexico City to connect to 21 additional domestic destinations within Mexico on a single ticket and baggage policy. According to the airlines, these destinations include popular tourist spots like Acapulco, Cancun, Guadalajara, and Monterrey.

Emirates customers will also see 20 new flight connections between six Mexican cities and various U.S. destinations, including Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Orlando, and Miami. Passengers traveling from Mexico City can access nonstop flights to Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York JFK, or San Antonio on Viva Aerobus.

“This new partnership provides our customers with more choice to suit their travel plans and enables them to seamlessly fly to a host of unique destinations in Mexico,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer, in a press release.

The ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) will join a long list of Emirates partner airlines around the world with a total of 161.

“We are excited about this new partnership… This opportunity allows passengers to seamlessly reach many other destinations in Mexico and the U.S.,” added Javier Suarez, Executive Vice President and Chief Planning and Alliances Officer at Viva Aerobus.

Emirates currently serves Mexico with daily flights to Mexico City via Barcelona. This new partnership strengthens Emirates’ presence in the region and offers travelers more convenient travel options.
