Emirates Airlines obtained permission to operate the flight between Dubai and Mexico City via Barcelona starting next December 9, 2019.

The permission was granted by the Communications and Transports Ministry, so the airline is on its way to begin its daily flights next month,

Salem Obaidalla, senior vice president of Emirates Americas Commercial Operations, said that the airline is glad to confirm they obtained the permission for the flight.

“Emirates hopes to serve its customers in Mexico and to offer travelers in the route our unique and awarded service.”

“We would like to express our appreciation to Mexico’s authorities that have granted us the permission and the necessary time slots to operate out flights,” said the executive in a release.
