Cancun, Q.R. — On Sunday, Cancun received its first Paris flight since Coronavirus shut down travel into the region. Governor Carlos Joaquín made the announcement saying “we have received the Paris-Cancun flight from Air France again. One of the most successful routes from Europe returns after the pandemic. In addition, we broke a record Sunday with 291 air operations. We are moving forward in the reactivation of Quintana Roo.”

The governor of Quintana Roo celebrated that these days, the Cancun International Airport is receiving flights from Europe including those from Lufthansa airline, which arrived October 1. On October 4, flights between Paris and Cancun resumed with the arrival of the airline Air France.

On October 3, Edelweiss returned to the Cancun International Airport, which is starting with a weekly operation on Saturdays to connect Quintana Roo with Zurich. An increase in frequencies is expected by the end of the year.

Carlos Joaquin added that this past weekend, there were more than 41,000 tourists in the state.

“Today, more than ever, is when we must have more care and attention and less relaxation because there are more people on the streets, because there are more people arriving to visit and tourism, without a doubt, requires greater care of health,” he stressed.
