According to Anko van der Werff, chief revenue officer for Aeromexico, the airline is proud to add Amsterdam to their route. “Thanks to this new flight we can offer all our customers traveling from the Netherlands excellent service on board the Boeing 787 from now on”, Van der Werff said in the statement. “The night flights in both directions offer travelers the opportunity to spend the whole day in Mexico City and Amsterdam.”
