Quintana Roo Tourism Board has announced the addition of new, direct international flights to the Cancun International Airport will expand the area´s global air connectivity, the board said.
This expansion comes as international tourists continue to flock to Mexico´s most popular international destinations located across the state, which include Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Riviera Maya, Holbox, Isla Mujeres, Puerto Morelos, Bacalar, Tulum, Mahahual, and Chetumal.
Airline partners Aeromexico, Copa, Frontier, GOL, Southwest and WestJet have added new routes to Cancun´s international airport:
Last month, the Quintana Roo Tourism Board further strengthened relations with US airline partners during a series of planning meetings with senior representatives of United Airlines in Chicago, American Airlines in Dallas, and Delta Air Lines in Atlanta. These airline partners expressed continued commitment to serving Mexico, which for many is their largest international market outside the US, and specifically to their desire to continue to grow their business serving Quintana Roo´s International airports located in Cancun and Cozumel.
The state of Quintana Roo welcomed more than 7 million international tourists in the first half of 2018, an increase of 8% compared to the same period the previous year.
Mexico is now the sixth most visited country in the world and welcomed 39.3 million international visitors in 2017.
