mexico city by night

SkyTeam member Aeromexico is offering a deal from Barcelona to Mexico City starting at just €505. This deal includes 23kg checked luggage and seat selection, which is not usual with Aeromexico. Departures are available from September to March 2025 with blackout dates in December.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Aeromexico or Skyscanner with your selected flight dates. From Skyscanner, you can proceed to check check what OTAs have to offer, as they sell these tickets up to €30 cheaper.


First, you will take a feeder flight with Air Europa to Madrid or with Air France to Paris, and then continue on an Aeromexico Boeing 787 for your transatlantic flight to Mexico City. These planes feature a 3-3-3 cabin configuration in economy class.

This deal is a Classic fare, providing you with 25 kg of checked luggage and complimentary seat selection, which typically costs around €200 extra with Aeromexico.

Search & Book

This deal will expire on May 23, 2024. A minimum stay of a Saturday overnight stay, and a maximum stay of six months applies. Departures are available from September to March 2025 with blackout dates in December.

You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. We recommend booking directly on Aeromexico’s website, but you can find cheaper prices with Skyscanner. However, booking on OTAs has its downsides. In some dates in September, the website offers tickets with shorter layovers compared to Skyscanner or Aeromexico.

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 two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline 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 information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to 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.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. 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.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Information & Tips for Mexico

Mayan pyramids, dreamy beaches and tacos – Mexico is an incredibly diverse country. If you want to experience the Spanish-speaking country to its fullest, you should definitely stay somewhere other than the tourist hotspots and seaside resorts.

The Best Time to Travel

The perfect travel time is from December to April, during this time it hardly rains and the temperatures are pleasant. Unsurprisingly, during the rainy season from May to October there is more rainfall. Beware of some extreme weather phenomenons that might be unknown to Europeans: Hurricane season lasts from June to November! Those who want to travel to typical holiday areas like Cancún and do not want to spend lots of money should travel in the off season. Areas with less touristic relevance such as Mexico City, on the other hand, are relatively constant throughout the year from a price perspective.

Currency, Credit Cards & Tipping

The official currency of the country is the Mexican Peso. 1 EUR equals about MX$20. The acceptance of credit cards is comparable to or even slightly better than Germany. In almost all shops, even small kiosks, it is possible and quite normal to pay by card. The same applies to restaurants. For street vendors, street snack bars and the like, it is advisable to have a few pesos in cash with you. It is unusual to tip taxis or cab drivers. At a restaurant, 10-15 percent are normal, as long as the tip is not already listed on the bill as a line item. When paying by card, you can usually choose how much you want to tip at the card terminal before entering the pin. Housekeeping at a hotel should usually be tipped 20-40 Pesos per day, small favours have a going tip rate of 5 Pesos.

Immigration & Visa Requirements

Most EU citizens do not need a visa to enter Mexico. All you need to do is fill out the tourist card that is handed out onboard the plane. For touristic and business purposes, a visa-free stay of 180 days is possible.
