Dubai’s Emirates to restart flights to Mexico City via Barcelona

The BCN-MEX route will be operated with a two-class Emirates Boeing 777-200LR

Dubai carrier Emirates will resume four weekly services to Mexico City (MEX) via Barcelona (BCN) from July 2, 2021, it announced on April 22.

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 3.25am, arriving in Barcelona at 8.35am before departing again at 10.50am and arriving into Mexico City at 4.05pm the same day. The return flight EK256 will depart Mexico City at 7.40pm, arriving in Barcelona at 1.45pm the next day. EK256 will depart once again from Barcelona the same day at 3.30pm bound for Dubai where it will arrive at 12:15am the next day (all times are 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.

Emirates SkyCargo has been flying freighters to/from Mexico City since 2014. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Emirates SkyCargo continued its cargo connectivity to Mexico City on freighter and passenger freighter flights, bringing in PPE and vaccines into the country.

Emirates updated its booking policies, extending the ticket validity of its customers earlier this month. Customers holding tickets issued before September 30, 2020 for travel before December 31, 2021, can now rebook to travel anytime within 36 months, an extension of 12 months from the previous policy. Those holding tickets issued after October 1, 2020 for travel before December 31, 2021, can also utilise their tickets anytime within 36 months from the date of their original booking.

Fees for reissuing any ticket will be waived, and vouchers or unused portions of Emirates tickets may be refunded without penalty.
