DUBAI, UAE, 26 April 2021: Emirates has announced it will resume four weekly services to Mexico City via Barcelona from 2 July 2021.

The BCN-MEX route will be operated with a two-class Emirates Boeing 777-200LR, which offers 38 Business class seats in a 2-2-2 configuration and 264 seats in economy class. Emirates flight EK255 will depart Dubai at 0325, arriving in Barcelona at 0835 before departing again at 1050 and arriving in Mexico City at 1605 the same day.

The return flight EK256 will depart Mexico City at 1940, arriving in Barcelona at 1345 the next day. EK256 will depart Barcelona at 1530 bound for Dubai, where it will arrive at 0015 the next day (all times local).

The resumed service between Dubai-Barcelona-Mexico will serve Emirates’ customers in Mexico and offer more choice to travellers heading from Europe, India, South East Asia and the Middle East via Dubai or Barcelona.

The service will also provide additional connectivity to global markets for Mexican exports such as avocados, berries, mangoes, automotive parts and medical supplies. Emirates SkyCargo has been flying freighters to/from Mexico City since 2014 already, marking seven years of operations to the country this month.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Emirates SkyCargo continued its cargo connectivity to Mexico City on freighter and passenger freighter flights, bringing in much-needed PPE and Covid-19 vaccines into the country while continuing to support Mexican exports.

Emirates customers from the UAE and around the world can now plan their travel as Mexico remains open for tourists and visitors, particularly from the UAE, Spain, Pakistan, Singapore, Egypt, and Lebanon.
