State officials to start promoting Tulum airport internationally

Tulum, Q.R. — Bernardo Cueto, the Secretary of Tourism for Quintana Roo (Sedetur), will begin promoting the up-and-coming Tulum International Airport that is set to start operating in December.

Governor Mara Lezama says she, along with Cueto and personnel from the Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) who are heading the federal airport project, have already held a meeting with Tulum airport authorities to define strategies to promote the airport and increase tourist market interest.

State authorities are hoping to finalize agreements for the operation of international airlines seeking to reach the destination. Lezama said that during a recent meeting, a strategy was created to promote the airport and the new routes that will be opening.

“We are going to work with the commercial teams of the airport to support them while they support the destination by attracting new routes,” she said. To date, three national airlines have announced connections with the Tulum airport.

Last month, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced state-owned Mexicana de Aviación will operate out of the Tulum airport. In following days, both Aeroméxico and Viva Aerobus also announced they will begin offering flights to and from the airport starting December.
