Increasing international air connectivity to Merida’s Manuel Crescencio Rejón International Airport makes the White City a highly desirable location for medical tourism.
Residents of the U.S., Canada, Europe and Central America can already make direct connections to Merida’s convenient international airport through important hubs like Houston, Miami, Toronto, Rome, Milan, Belize City and others.
New flights beginning March 3 will provide direct non-stop service to Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport. Planning is also in process for direct international flights from Merida to El Salvador, Costa Rica and Spain.
Nearly 20 airlines currently serve Merida, including giant U.S. carriers United (from Houston) and Delta (from Miami, through a code-share with Aeromexico). In 2015, WestJet inaugurated service from Toronto, while Blue Panorama Airlines launched flights to Rome and Milan.
Multiple daily nonstop flights from Merida to Mexico City’s and Cancun’s international airports provide more direct connections to scores of other destinations throughout the world.
As its international connectivity expands, Merida International is also seeing increased service to other cities throughout Mexico. Guadalajara, Monterrey, Villahermosa, Veracruz, Tampico and Tuxtla Gutierrez are already served directly, and flights to other Mexican destinations are in the works.
Merida’s International Airport is a fully modern but very user-friendly facility that served more than 1.5 million passengers in 2015. In order to accommodate its steadily growing international passenger flow, the airport has recently undergone substantial renovations to its Immigration and Customs facilities.
Other airport improvements have upgraded waiting rooms, air operations and taxi service. Measures have also been implemented to increase security measures in the management of passenger luggage to avoid mishaps.
Starting Feb. 16, United will offer daily nonstop service to Houston, expanding from five days a week. The new nontstop American Airlines service to Dallas-Ft. Worth will be offered five days a week, starting March 3. Delta-Aeromexico currently flies nonstop to Miami four days a week.
