New York, New York – The Mexico Tourism Board’s New York Office and AeroMexico, Mexico’s largest transcontinental airline, is now offering ground transportation service between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and downtown Manhattan, effective immediately. This Shuttle Express service provides a comfortable, fast and safe way to get to and from the airport, and is available exclusively for AeroMexico’s passengers. Convenient schedules are timed to support the arrival and departure of the airline’s three daily round-trip, non-stop flights between New York City and Mexico City.
Passengers can take advantage of this new ground transportation service for unmatched fares of $20 one-way and $30 round-trip. A 25 percent discount on the regular fares applies for Gran Plan (AeroMexico Vacations packages) passengers and groups of four or more people.
Shuttle riders travel in style on modern, luxurious, 50-passenger buses, which are equipped with airplane-like seating, collapsible tables, on-board restrooms, Wi-Fi connections, six, 17” tv/video screens, individual heating/air conditioning, and a bottle of Poland Springs water for every passenger. Each bus is easily identifiable with colorful AeroMexico images wrapped around the exterior.
The shuttle routes include bus stops at the following strategically chosen Big Apple locations: Hotel Marriott Eastside, Hotel Marriott Marquis, Hotel Hilton New York & Towers, Hotel Warwick and Grand Central Terminal (this stop only available one-way for passengers arriving from JFK). At JFK, the shuttle pick up/drop-off point is located just steps away from the airline’s check-in counter. Passengers can simply pay their fare when they board the bus at one of its regularly scheduled stops.
Because New York City is one of AeroMexico’s largest markets, the “Eagle Knight” airline wants to make the entire travel experience as enjoyable as possible for the thousands of passengers who travel to and from the city for business or leisure every year. As the only airline to offer this service at JFK, AeroMexico is ensuring that its passengers, on top of being safe and comfortable, are at ease knowing that well-trained personnel are waiting on the ground to greet and whisk them to and from the airport.
New York City, like all major metropolitan areas, has considerable ground traffic so the journey from JFK to Manhattan can, in the best case scenario, involve one hour of travel. The complimentary Internet connections and entertainment system on board each Shuttle Express bus allow passengers to make their ground journeys as productive and enjoyable as possible. Passengers headed to Manhattan or on their way from the city to JFK can count on AeroMexico for the best possible trip on the ground and in the air.
