MONTERREY, NL – The Ministry of Tourism of the State of Mexico, Grupo Aeroportuario Centro Norte (OMA) and Air Canada inaugurated the Monterrey-Toronto route.
The route, which will be operated with four weekly frequencies by Airbus A220 aircraft, will facilitate connectivity between the two cities and generate travel opportunities to the more than 50 destinations operated by Air Canada from Toronto.
“With this new direct route to Toronto, Monterrey strengthens its position as the hub for northern Mexico and southern Texas, offering greater international connectivity to passengers,” said Maricarmen Martinez Villarreal, Secretary of Tourism of Nuevo Leon.
Luis Noriega Benet, Air Canada’s Director of Sales for Latin America and the Caribbean, commented: “We are very excited that our customers will be able to enjoy the comfort of the new Airbus A220. This new route will strengthen our presence in such an important hub as Monterrey.
Ricardo Dueñas, CEO of OMA, noted that Monterrey continues to strengthen its network of connections, providing attractive international routes that contribute to the economic growth of Nuevo Leon and in turn benefit tourism and business travel between the two destinations.
In this way, Monterrey Airport reaffirms its leadership as the hub of connections in the north of the country. As of today, the airport offers 57 direct destinations operated by 15 airlines, including 17 international ones.
This opening represents a major advance in the connectivity network from Monterrey, reinforcing the commitment of OMA and VINCI Airports to provide greater mobility by air, strengthening the ties between Mexico and Canada.
