Mexico City, Mexico — The Secretary of Tourism of the Government of Mexico says the country is increasing its air connectivity into the U.S. The increase in flights will be a strong trigger for the arrival of more international tourists to Mexico’s different destinations.
The Secretary of Tourism, Miguel Torruco Marqués, recognized Mexico’s airlines for their recent announcements to increase routes, frequencies and seats, especially to the United States, after Category 1 was recovered.
After meetings held with directors of the main national airlines, it was announced that Aeroméxico will gradually start 17 new routes from seven destinations in Mexico to nine cities in the United States.
Torruco Marqués says two of these flights will be from the Felipe Ángeles International Airport with destination to McAllen and Dallas-Fort Worth.
He noted that Viva Aerobus will launch six new routes from Monterrey, Nuevo León, to the United States and a couple of days ago, two more routes were announced from Mérida to Orlando and Miami.
Meanwhile, Volaris contemplates increasing frequencies on its routes between Mexico and the United States, which will favor the flow of passengers between both countries as well as the diversification of the arrival of international tourists to more cities in our country.
The increases are the result of recent promotions through “Operation Knock on Doors”, which were held in the cities of Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Houston, San Antonio, Washington DC, Dallas, Phoenix, San Francisco and Albuquerque.
Last month, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SICT) reported the country was planning to open more than 50 new routes between Mexico and the U.S.
