The cheapest fare only includes a hand luggage and a personal item. The standard fare, incl. 23 kg of luggage, costs €110 more. Frequent flyers with a SkyTeam Elite status can bring an additional piece of luggage, even in the light fare.
You can easily find available dates using our calendar. This calendar shows you all possible dates for trips lasting up to a month. Out of technical reasons, it only shows flights departing until September. Simply select a date for your departure from Amsterdam. You’ll then be shown all the cheap inbound flights and can directly let yourself be redirected to Air France’s website, which offers the cheapest price.
SkyTeam partner Aeromexico also offers tickets for €367 on some dates. However, these are only available until March 2021.
How to get to Amsterdam
Schiphol International Airport, located in Amsterdam is the largest airport in the Netherlands. With over 50 million passengers a year, it is the fourth largest airport in Europe and KLM’s home base.
Amsterdam is easy to reach by car from the Benelux countries as well as from Denmark. Alternatively, you can also travel to Amsterdam with Flixbus.

The flights are scheduled to be operated with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and will last roughly 11 hours in each direction. The economy class seats are aligned in a 3-3-3 formation and offer a leg space of 79 cm.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.

There are two major exceptions: Flying Blue calculates the award miles based on revenue – giving you 4-6 miles per spent Euro (without fees & taxes). That adds up to 1,000 or 1,500 miles for the roundtrip.
Delta SkyMiles is the best of all options, crediting you 100% of the flown distance as status miles. That adds up to roughly 11,500 MQMs for the roundtrip!
Information & Tips for Mexico City
3 Tips for Mexico City
Mexico City is not quite as touristic as, for example, the seaside resort city and party destination Cancun. This means that hardly anybody speaks English, but you also don’t have to be afraid of being ripped off because you look like a tourist. My 3 tips for Mexico City:
- Torre Latinoamericana: The office tower – which looks a bit ugly from the outside – offers a fantastic view over the city, especially at dusk. The ticket is valid for several visits over the course of a whole day and costs 110 Pesos (= 4,50€).
- Chapultepec Park: There is a free zoo in Chapultepec Park. Even though admission is free, you can admire a total of 252 different animal species.
- Teotihuacán: A little outside of town are the impressive pyramids of Teotihuacán. I recommend that you get there early, otherwise you’ll have to wait in line for a long time. I came by public bus (not through an organized tour), I found the instructions on how to do that in this blog. I would also recommend checking out the cave restaurant there!
For getting around Mexico City I recommend using Uber. The countless taco stands are also great and extremely cheap. However, make sure that the meat is adequately cooled. Unfortunately, you often see that raw meat is lying somewhere in the blazing sun.
