This will be the first airline to operate daily non-stop flights between both nations
Japanese airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced a few months ago that they would begin operating direct flights between Tokyo and Mexico City.
The flights will start from February 15, 2017, and with this ANA will become the first airline to make daily non-stop flights between Japan and Mexico.
This will be the longest route of the airline, and will be the Boeing Dreamliner 787-8 planes the ones in charge to make the trip, in order to offer users the best flight experience.
The flight will have 46 seats for business class and 123 economy class.
ANA's President and CEO Osamu Shinobe commented in a press release that the purpose of these flights is to improve the growing demand for business and leisure travel between the two countries and they hope that this will contribute to a closer bilateral relationship, to economic prosperity and cultural exchange.
With this, Mexico City will become the 42 international destination in the ANA network.
Finally, the airline said that this decision was made because Mexico has signed free trade agreements with more than 40 countries, including Japan and the United States, attracting the attention of more and more companies.
It should also be noted that the economic ties between Japan and Mexico, especially in the automotive industry, continue to strengthen over the years, and the number of Japanese companies in the country is expected to continue to grow, in order to improve the links between Both nations.
