Mexican carrier Aeromexico said that it will take delivery of its first Boeing (NYSE: BA) 787-8 Dreamliner in the first half of August of this year. This will make Aeromexico the first Mexican carrier to operate the airline industry's most current and equipped aircraft to serve all of the airline's customers.

Aeromexico will start to serve its commercial operations with the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner in October this year.

The aircraft is scheduled to first serve the Mexico City-Monterrey and Mexico City-Tijuana routes on October 1st, followed by the Mexico-New York City route between October 2nd and 13th this year.

On October 14th, Aeromexico will fly its inaugural flight between Mexico City and Tokyo, Japan, after which it will serve that same route with the new aircraft three times a week.

Aeromexico will take delivery of its second and third Dreamliners in September to start serving the Mexico City-Paris route with daily service with this jet airliner, plus certain weekly flights to New York.

These are first three Boeing 787 Dreamliners Aeromexico will add to its fleet as the first of the 19 Dreamliners it will incorporate over the next few years.

Aeromexico operates more than 600 daily flights out of its main hub in Terminal 2 at the Mexico City International Airport. The carrier serves more than 80 cities on three continents including 46 destinations in Mexico, 18 in the United States, 11 in Latin America, three in Europe, two in Asia and one in Canada.
