Delta has announced yet another new international flight from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

The airline, which counts MSP as one of its major hubs, will start daily nonstop routes to Mexico City on June 8, subject to government approval.

The flight will take a little over four hours and will be the only direct route between the two cities, as currently you need to connect.

It's the third new international route from MSP announced by Delta this year, the others being Seoul-Incheon and Shanghai.

Delta has partnered with Aeromexico for the new service, which will be operated on Delta's Airbus A319 planes that can see 102 in the main cabin, 18 in Delta Comfort+ and 12 in First Class.

Flights will leave MSP at 8:50 a.m. daily, arriving at 1:01 p.m., while return flights will leave at 2 p.m., arriving in MSP at 6:14 p.m.

"We've heard from our Twin Cities customers that Mexico City is at the top of their most requested destinations and this new service will give them just that and more," said Steve Sear, Delta's President of Global Sales.

"At the same time, it allows for more choice and options for customers in many U.S. and Canadian cities through one convenient, easy connection as well as easy connections to dozens of destinations in Mexico thanks to our partnership with Aeromexico."

The Metropolitan Airports Commission, which operates MSP, said Mexico City is the most popular destination in Latin America that doesn't have direct service from MSP.

Around 700 people a day travel from the Twin Cities to Mexico, and a link to Mexico City will provide many more connections for destinations south of the border.
