Only Today: €382 SkyTeam Flights to Mexico City from Spain (Checked Bags Add €110)

mexico city by night

SkyTeam members Air France, KLM and Delta offer cheap flights to Mexico City from various Spanish cities. Although, you need to be quick: the offer expires today. The good amount of departure cities lets you find a suitable connection flight if you are based outside of Spain. Flights don’t include hold luggage.

Info

Mexico doesn’t have any entry regulations.

At KLM & Air France, all tickets can still be rebooked without a change fee, but you will now have to pay the price difference. You can also exchange the flights for a non-refundable voucher, valid for 1 year. Unfortunately, the option to have the value of the voucher paid out to your bank account no longer exists since March 1st. You can read the rules here.

You can depart from these cities for under €400 with a 20-hour maximum travel time.

You can use our Go2 form below. Once selecting your route and dates, it will redirect you to either KLM’s website or to the Travel-Dealz Flight Search.

SkyTeam member airlines offer cheap flights from Spanish cities to Mexico City

You can choose between various onboard products. KLM flies its Dreamliners to Mexico City, while AIr France uses different products. From Madrid and Barcelona, you can also choose Delta’s flight to Atlanta.

Search & Book

According to the fare rules, you need to book today (March 29, 2022). There is a minimum stay of six days or a Saturday night. While the travel dates last until December 15, you can’t travel in the summer. There is little availability in the first period, but autumn offers plenty of availability.

You can also use Google Flights (instructions) to find the best route and dates. After that you can use our Go2 tool: if you set up the bookmark (which takes less than a minute), you can see different prices with one click. On the Go2 main page, you can select either the KLM website or the Travel-Dealz flight search tool. The latter compares different prices and lets you book through OTAs.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:

  1. The Covid-19 Pandemic
    During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.

    Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
  2. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

    If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.

    This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
  3. Baggage Fees
    Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

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:

  1. 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€).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
