Cozumel, Q.R. — As of July 1, the island of Cozumel will again see the arrival of a direct Madrid-Cozumel flight by Evelop-Iberojet. Cozumel mayor Pedro Joaquín Delbouis points out that this connection will unite Europe with Cozumel again after 15 years.
“We are acting in Cozumel with great responsibility. Today, I can say that we have left behind the most critical moments of the pandemic,” said Delbouis.
Paul Verhagen, Deputy Director General of Iberojet confirmed that as of July 1, they will fly to Cozumel from Barajas Airport in Madrid with an Airbus 330 and a capacity of 388 passengers. The flight is scheduled to be a weekly frequency.
He said that during the summer months, 11 or 12 flights are planned, but “if the demand responds, we will extend that period. It will be the only non-stop flight between Madrid and Cozumel, which will connect Spain with Quintana Roo,” he said.
The Mexican ambassador to Spain, María del Carmen Oñate Muñoz was also on hand for the announcement.
