According to airport officials, Morelia is a popular destination sought by Central Valley travelers. Aeromexico is offering the service on a trial basis, but they plan to consider operating the route during peak travel periods.
Director of Aviation Kevin Meikle stated, "The announcement of Aeromexico's new service to Morelia supports our efforts to grow markets that serve the needs of the community."
"Aeromexico recognizes Morelia as a strong destination and has been determined to establish a route from Fresno to Morelia. We expect the service to be successful and look forward to expanding it in the future," stated Aeromexico Market Manager Gabriela De Anda.
The airport said the weekly service will begin on December 18, and continue through the peak holiday season.
Aeromexico said the addition of Morelia complements the airline's current non-stop air service to Guadalajara, Mexico.
