Viva Aerobús begins selling tickets for its five flights from Tulum International

Tulum, Q.R. — Airline Viva Aerobús has announced five routes for the Tulum International Airport. Viva Aerobús will begin with the new routes in December with the opening of the Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport of Tulum.

“This announcement represents the arrival of more visitors who will be able to enjoy the beauties of central and southern Quintana Roo bringing prosperity to the communities that need it most and exploring a new model of community tourism.

“That is what we want, that the tourist success is reflected in the communities of the center and south,” Governor Mara Lezama said.

Viva Aerobús announced that starting in December 1, it will fly from the new Tulum airport to the airports of Mexico City (AICM and AIFA), Guadalajara, Monterrey and Tijuana. It will be the first to operate in the four airports that Quintana Roo will have, with more than 30 routes, Lezama added.

“Quintana Roo is a tourism giant and air connectivity plays a transcendental role to further strengthen the accessibility of all our destinations, attract new investment, generate employment and create shared prosperity throughout the state,” she said.

The airline announced that as of August 24, passengers can purchase their tickets for these new routes. Two services to the country’s capital and Monterrey begin on December 1, to Guadalajara on the 16th of December and to Tijuana on the 17th of the month.

The Secretary of Quintana Roo Tourism, Bernardo Cueto Riestra, reported that last year, Riviera Maya, made up precisely of Tulum and Playa del Carmen, was placed as the second destination in the state to attrack the most passengers, behind Cancun.

“With these flights, the tourist potential of Tulum is greatly benefited and it is on its way to becoming one of the favorite beaches in the Caribbean. This year, we expect to exceed the 1.7 million visitors that we registered in 2022,” he said.

On Wednesday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador also announced both national and international airline interests in the up-and-coming Tulum airport, but did not provide any names.

Last week, he reported that the new state-owned Mexicana de Aviación will make the Tulum International Airport its second home base, offering flights between Tulum and Mexico City.
