MSP airport celebrates first flight to Mexico City

The first flight from Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport to Mexico City took off Saturday morning.

The new route from Delta, with a partnership with Aeroméxico, will allow Twin Cities residents a path to the city and 55 other airports in Mexico and Latin America.

Saturday's inaugural flight was celebrated by local leaders from Mexico, a performance by Mariachi Jalisco de Minnesota and a customary fire truck water cannon salute.
