United Airlines starting with 22 weekly U.S. flights into Tulum International

Tulum, Q.R. — United Airlines says it will offer nonstop flights between the United States and the soon-to-open Tulum International Airport. The airline will begin offering direct U.S. to Tulum flights starting March 31, 2024.

United announced that it will offer non-stop flights between the U.S. and the Tulum International Airport (TQO) with 22 weekly flights from Newark/New York, Houston and Chicago beginning March 31, 2024.

On May 23, United will add daily seasonal service from Los Angeles, resulting in up to five daily flights from United’s hubs to Tulum this upcoming summer.

Mexico continues to be a leading leisure destination and Tulum has quickly emerged as one of Mexico’s most popular destinations for American travelers, the company said in a press release.

“Tulum is at the top of a lot of travel lists – great beaches and restaurants, and a region featuring a rich history and spectacular natural beauty,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s senior vice president of Network Planning and Alliances.

“Our new direct flights help people get there faster than ever, giving them even more time to enjoy one of Mexico’s most unique destinations.”

This winter, United will be the largest airline between the U.S. and Riviera Maya region and will have the most flying to Cancun in its history.

United will offer more than 200 weekly flights from eight U.S. cities to Cancun during the winter peak, including flights on the airline’s Boeing 777 widebody aircraft from Chicago, Denver and Houston. United will also continue to fly between Cozumel and Chicago, Denver and Houston, operating up to 11 weekly flights this winter.

The Tulum International Airport is located approximately 141 kilometers (81 miles) south of Cancun. United’s flights into Tulum International can be purchased now.

On Thursday, Quintana Roo Governor Mara Lezama posted “Great news! Connectivity continues to the new Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport of Tulum with flights by United Airline from New York, Houston, Chicago starting March 31 and a seasonal one from Los Angeles, starting May 23, 2024.

“We are just days away from the grand opening of this new gateway to our state, where we will receive more than 5.5 million passengers a year, bringing prosperity to the center and south of Quintana Roo.”
