Given the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, several countries have closed their borders as a preventive measure against infections. After more than a year of this situation, the European Union will gradually open its borders to foreigners, including Mexicans.
From June 9, 2021, all Mexicans who wish to tour this destination will be able to access the country. Mexico is considered by health authorities as one of the “orange countries”, therefore the following conditions must be met for admission:
- Complete vaccination schedule, this means they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The vaccines accepted by France are those recognized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA): Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.
- PCR test for COVID-19 carried out 72 hours before arrival in France, or an antigen test carried out 48 hours in advance.
Aeromexico currently has five scheduled weekly flights between Mexico City and Paris-CDG by Boeing 787-9 with a capacity of 274 passengers, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. For July, the schedule of a daily flight is respected, increasing the seat supply by 40%.
The Spanish government has lifted some of its restrictions and created a list of countries allowed to enter its territory for tourism reasons.
For entry and permanence, a vaccination certificate must be provided certifying that travelers have completed the program at least 14 days prior to their arrival in Spain. The vaccines accepted by the Spanish government are those authorized by the European Medicines Agency or the World Health Organization.
These new measures entered into force on June 6, 2021. It is important to stress that it will not be necessary to carry out a quarantine or to present additional evidence to visit Spanish territory.
Between Mexico City and Madrid, Aeroméxico has scheduled 10 weekly flights in June, which will become 14 in July, which represents a 40% increase in the supply of seats.
The company will also make five to seven weekly flights from the Mexican capital to Amsterdam. Both routes are served by Boeing 787-9s.
