Cancun, Q.R. — After nearly six months without flights from Europe, Cancun received its first plane with the arrival of Lufthansa flight LH514 from Frankfurt, Germany. Lufthansa’s Director General for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean Felipe Bonifatti, welcomed Flight 514 from Frankfurt together with tourist authorities to the Cancun International Airport Thursday.
The Lufthansa flight landed with 260 passengers. Last month, the airline announced its intention to resume the route, which will offer two weekly flights at the beginning of October and three weekly flights at the end of the month.
Felipe Bonifatti said “returning to Cancun is a great step for Lufthansa Group as well as for the world-class tourist destination that is Quintana Roo. The demand for vacation travel is increasing and we are proud to be the first European airline to return to the Mexican Caribbean. Our commitment to Mexico and its people is clear and firm. Thank you Quintana Roo for welcoming us once more.”
On October 3, an Edelweiss flight will follow, landing at Cancun International from Zurich.
