Tulum, Q.R. — Autobuses de Oriente (ADO) says once the Tulum International Airport is operational, they will offer two new routes. ADO has confirmed the first two routes from the Tulum International Airport, however, they are working to open more routes depending on demand.
Julio García, head of Grupo Mobility ADO says for now, the bus company will start with two routes in December.
“We are already in talks with the commercial part of the Tulum airport. We have worked with them on the projection of passenger service that they are beginning to glimpse,” he said.
Garcia says ADO will offer connections with airports in Cancun and AICM (Felipe Ángeles International Airport in Mexico City). He says there is great interest in being part of this new connectivity to the Tulum airport. The objective is to consolidate the direct connections with both the municipal head of Felipe Carrillo Puerto and Tulum.
“At the beginning there will be these two routes. We depend a lot on their confirmation, on air traffic, but we are there. It is a small airport. It does not have any comparison with that of Cancun, but it will undoubtedly attract more tourism to the state,” he said.
García said ADO plans on transporting travelers from the Tulum airport to other parts of Quintana Roo and across Mexico, however, travel figures, demand and operating costs all need to be considered.
“We are doing the planning, detailing the routes, supply and demand, among other things. We must be aware that everything is a process and requires a large investment and infrastructure.
“There are many factors to consider, but we are happy and with great optimism for this new project and what better place to be considering it than in Quintana Roo, a place full of wealth and tourism,” he said.
