Cancun, Q.R. — Quintana Roo’s recovery is on the rise and, by the end of the year, will see greater air connectivity with the US and Europe said the Director of Tourism.
Darío Flota, the director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council, said that by the end of the year, new flights from Europe are expected to begin arriving at the Cancun International Airport.
“We are going to have new flights from the Nordic countries as well as another one from Ukraine and the restoration of a KLM route within the next few days, which will fly from Amsterdam to Cancun,” he said.
Flota added that Spanish airline Level will extend operations into Quintana Roo from Barcelona until next April.
“Initally, Level announced that it would only fly in July and August, then due to the success they achieved, it was extended until September and now they have announced that from October, they will continue for six more months,” he explained.
For the winter season, a greater number of flights from different destinations in the United States are expected to land in the state. “We will have new flights from Atlanta to Cancun, from Orlando to Cozumel and from Miami to Chetumal,” he added.
The Cancun International Airport continues to maintain around 350 flight operations per day.
