Air transportation is a good way to save time in such a large
country even if it is the most expensive way to travel.

Aeromexico introduces the E-Jet in Mexico and
converts Aérolitoral to Connect (Aeromexico Connect). The
first Embraer 190 of Aeromexico was delivered on November 23,
2007. Destined to its regional branch, Aeromexico Connect, previously
named Aérolitoral, is the first of four aircrafts that
will integrate the fleet of the Mexican company. They will be
equipped with a dual class configuration of 99 seats, with eleven
in business class and will allow Aeromexico Connect to renew its
fleet and extend its services. With the delivery of this ERJ 190,
Aeromexico Connect becomes the first Mexican company to operate
an ERJ 170/190 craft. But it already owns crafts from the Brazilian
manufacturer since it already operates twenty seven ERJ 145. The
regional company offers flights on less traveled routes in Mexico
and to the neighboring countries. Its headquarter is located at
the International airport of Monterrey.
