VivaAerobus to be first to operate out of upcoming Tulum airport

Tulum, Q.R. — VivaAerobus says they will be the first airline to operate out of the upcoming Tulum airport. Juan Carlos Zuazua, the CEO of VivaAerobus, said the airline has already committed to being the first to operate at the Felipe Carrillo Puerto Airport.

He said talks have been had with federal authorities regarding operating out of the airport once its operational. He said initially, VivaAerobus will offer domestic routes, but mentioned that the airline is in talks with Allegiant Air, which could allow them to connect small and mid-sized U.S. cities to the Mexican Caribbean.

With a flight schedule out of Tulum, VivaAerobus would be the only Mexican airline to operate out of all Quintna Roo airports including Cancun, Cozumel, Chetumal and Tulum.

The Tulum airport is scheduled to be operational in April of 2024.
