Aeroméxico has signed an agreement with MLT Vacations to manage and operate its Aeroméxico Vacations packaged travel brand for the U.S. and Canada markets. Aeromexico Vacations will offer vacation packages to leisure destinations across Mexico, including popular beach destinations like Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, as well as cultural centers and historic colonial cities such as Oaxaca and Merida.
“This partnership will give Aeromexico the opportunity to tap into new markets in the U.S. and encourage even more people to visit Mexico, to experience the culture and hospitality that our country offers,” said Sergio Allard, Aeromexico’s chief commercial officer. “MLT Vacations has in-depth knowledge of how to market and sell Mexico’s diverse attractions to American and Canadian travelers and, by working together, we can offer them easy access to all that Mexico has to offer, for a great value.”
MLT Vacations, one of the largest providers of vacation packages in North America, has been offering vacation packages to Mexico’s most popular destinations for more than 40 years. Aeromexico currently offers more than 40 destinations throughout Mexico; 14 in the U.S.; 10 in South America, Caribbean and Central America; three in Europe; two in Asia; and one in Canada. MLT Vacations also manages Delta Vacations, United Vacations, Air France Holidays and Alitalia Vacations, as well as Worry-Free Vacations.
“We are honored to be selected as the tour operator of choice for the Aeromexico Vacations brand,” said Ken Pomerantz, president of MLT Vacations. “Aeromexico boasts an impressive safety record and a tremendous route network. The airline is recognized as the leading Mexican airline, and we look forward to providing Aeromexico Vacations customers in the U.S. and Canada with the vacation experiences that they would expect from the Aeromexico brand.”
Aeromexico Vacations will launch during the second quarter of 2012, and will be available directly through the Aeromexico Vacations web booking engine and through travel agents. Travel agents can access Aeromexico Vacations through MLT Vacation’s travel agent-only booking engine.
