Official says there is no foreseeable drop in arrival of tourists

Cancun, Q.R. — “Until September of next year, we see a 15 percent increase in airplane seats compared to this year, so there is no foreseeable drop in the arrival of tourists,” said the director of the Quintana Tourism Promotion Council Roo, Darío Flota Ocampo.

He said that indicators based on airplane seats and scheduled routes “have eliminated the doubts that were had” regarding a possible decline in flights.

According to Flota Ocampo,the state of Quintana Roo will exceed 12 million visitors by the end of the year. He noted that currently, the Cancun International Airport, with its new single-day operations record of 567, is at 83 percent of their 2019 figures, which they had predicted would close with 80 percent.

“The most probable thing is that we will end the year with 85 percent compared to 2019”, he said, while Cancun faces a historic hotel occupancy rate during the winter, which for the Mexican Caribbean, runs from the end of October into the third week of March.
