Mexican airline launches new 'Plus' class

Mexico's main airline, Aeroméxico, has launched a new AM Plus class. The privileged portion will occupy the first 3 rows of economy class on all its Boeing 737 aircraft.

Travellers who opt for the new class will be treated to an extra 10cm of leg room, leather headrests and additional recline on their seat backs. The changes introduced will affect 40 of the airline's planes.

As well as the in-flight comfort, AM Plus passengers will experience dedicated check-in counters and priority boarding and disembarking. The 737s are currently in use on their domestic flights plus international routes from Mexico which includes US destinations like New York and Los Angeles.

In December, Aeroméxico launched direct flights from London Heathrow to Mexico City airport. The flights operate three times per week, on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Mexico city is a UNESCO world heritage city, one of the oldest cities in the Americas. A key attraction for passengers landing in the Mexican capital include World Heritage Site Xochimilco, an area just south of the city dubbed the Mexican Venice due to it's Aztec floating gardens (or 'chinampas') and network of canals. Other highlights of the destination include Frida Kahlo's former home which is now a museum, and the pyramids of Teotihuacan.

Mexico has been named one of the world's eight largest emerging economies. At the launch of the new London to Mexico route Heathrow's chief executive Colin Matthews said, "We are delighted to welcome Aeroméxico to Heathrow. The centre of gravity in the world economy is shifting and Britain should be forging new links with economies like Mexico."
