Tulum, Q.R. — Delta Airlines has announced a direct Atlanta to Tulum route starting March. In early 2024, the American carrier will be the first major U.S. airline to operate out of the Felipe Carrillo Puerto Tulum International Airport in Quintana Roo.
On Friday, Delta reported that their daily Atlanta-Tulum service will launch March 28, 2024, and will operate year-round, giving customers direct access to the pristine beaches and laid-back atmosphere of this coastal Mexican treasure.
“Delta will operate daily nonstop service from its hometown Atlanta hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), to Tulum’s brand-new Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport (TQO) when it opens for international service.
“Delta is uniquely positioned to give customers convenient and direct access from the U.S. to Tulum, a premium leisure destination known for its boutique hotels, Mayan ruins and eco-friendly spirit,” said S.V.P. of Network Planning Joe Esposito.
“We know Tulum-bound customers will enjoy the elevated experience Delta consistently offers, and now without a two-hour drive from Cancun, as we grow our footprint in Mexico and throughout the Yucatan region.”
Delta’s daily Atlanta-Tulum service will launch March 28, 2024, and will operate year-round on a 160-seat Boeing 737-800, offering First Class, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin options. Customers in First Class can enjoy a chef-curated meal experience as well as complimentary premium wine, beer and spirits.
Delta’s partner Aeromexico will serve Tulum from Mexico City International Airport (MEX) beginning in December 2023. By the end of 2024, the Delta-Aeromexico Joint Cooperation Agreement (JCA) will offer more than 90 daily flights between Mexico and the United States on nearly 60 routes, reinforcing the commitment of the cross-border alliance to bring the two countries closer together via a robust network, seamless connectivity and consistent industry-leading products and services.
