Emirates announced on Monday that it will launch a daily service by the end of the year from Dubai to Mexico City International Airport via Barcelona.
The new services will start on 9 December 2019.Emirates’ Mexico City flight will be a linked service with Barcelona, which means that customers can travel between the two cities. Citizens from Mexico, Spain and the UAE only need their passports to enjoy visa-free travel to each respective country.

The new 777 flight will also offer up to 14 tonnes of cargo, opening up access to more global markets for Mexican exports such as avocados, berries, mangoes, automotive parts and medical supplies, report agencies.
Emirates SkyCargo has been flying freighters to/from Mexico City since 2014 already and in the last year carried over 22,500 tons of cargo on the route.
