Cancun, Q.R. — Spanish airline Level has announced the start of direct flights into Cancun for the first time. The airline says that as of July 2, it will begin offering flights from Barcelona, adding that Cancun will be the third Latin American destination for the airline who also flies to Buenos Aires and Santiago.
Lucía Adrover, LEVEL’s commercial director says the airline will begin operations in Cancun as of July 2 to take advantage of the potential that exists between both countries as European flight restrictions begin to lift.
The operation of the airline, which is part of the European conglomerate IAG, will have a weekly frequency with a A330-200 plane and will be the third destination of the company in Latin America, which also flies to Buenos Aires, in Argentina and Santiago, in Chile, says Adrover.
“The reason we were born was to connect Barcelona with the world, to bring distant destinations closer with competitive prices. Our value proposition is to have the capacity to offer and give options on how people want to fly and what services they will decide to hire,” he said of the low-cost carrier.
“The market and customers want to travel. Before this was conditioned to mobility restrictions, but since June 7, non-European passengers can enter Spain, which will give a boost to Mexicans also deciding to visit Barcelona,” he said.
Prior to the pandemic, Spain had a strong presence in Mexico with 1.2 million passengers in 2019. However, those figures plummeted 70 percent during 2020, something, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation says, they continue to recover.
