SkyTeam Opens New Facility at Mexico City International Airport

Location opens to handle peak springtime travel

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — SkyTeam customers traveling via Mexico City International Airport (MEX) will be accommodated in a brand new alliance facility, which includes more room, an enhanced flight information display system, and an expanded passenger drop-off area. The space will be shared by the six SkyTeam members that currently serve Mexico City’s international airport. Currently, Air France, Aeromexico and Delta Air Lines are operating out of the new facility, with Continental Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Northwest Airlines scheduled to move to the location shortly.

The new facility further illustrates SkyTeam’s customer benefit focus. The co-located area at the new Bay F1 is within a section of the international airport that was recently renovated with passenger convenience in mind. SkyTeam passengers traveling to and from Mexico City will enjoy:

– More accessible passenger-drop off: Located on the first floor of the
international terminal building, the facility is now easily reached
from both the curbside as well as the parking garage exit.
– Separate arrival and departure areas: In the new area, arrival and
baggage claims are located on the lower level, with departures located
one level above, helping streamline passenger flow.
– More space: The new roomy locale provides SkyTeam passengers with
additional areas to sit, more room to move about and will easily
accommodate the 6,000 passengers who visit the airport each day
throughout the peak season.
– Electronic signage: Ticket desks are equipped with new Flight
Information Display Systems (FIDS) which allow staff to provide
travelers with the most up-to-date flight status and boarding times
available.

In addition to the central ticketing area, SkyTeam passengers flying international first and business class will also enjoy lounge access at one of the two Aeromexico Premier lounges or the Continental Presidents Club located in the airport.

More than 20 million passengers pass through Mexico City’s international airport annually, one of the busiest in Latin America. Mexico City is also one of SkyTeam’s 29 hubs around the world. With the spring travel season fast approaching, whether travelers are planning trips to one of Mexico’s resort destinations or are simply returning home to visit family and friends, the SkyTeam co-located facility will help manage the increased passenger volume during this peak travel period.

In addition to Mexico City, SkyTeam has co-locations in 20 other cities around the world, including: Athens, Barcelona, Beijing, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Geneva, Istanbul, Lagos, Manchester, Munich, Milan-Malpensa, Moscow-Sheremetyevo, Paris-CDG2, Rome, Stuttgart, Tunis, Venice and Vienna.
