Merida’s Manuel Crescencio Rejón International Airport is one of the important factors cementing the White City’s reputation as a very desirable location for medical tourism.
Residents of the U.S., Canada, Europe and Central America can already take direct flights to Merida’s convenient international airport from major hubs like Houston, Miami, Toronto, Rome, Belize City and others.
Some 15 airlines currently serve Merida, including major U.S. carriers United (from Houston) and Delta (from Miami, through a code-share with Aeromexico). American Airlines plans to launch service between Miami and Merida starting summer 2017.
In February 2016, United began offering daily nonstop service to Houston, expanding from five days a week. Delta-Aeromexico currently flies nonstop to Miami daily.
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 additional direct connections to many other destinations throughout the world.
As its connectivity expands, Merida International is seeing increased service to other cities throughout Mexico as well. Guadalajara, Monterrey, Villahermosa, Veracruz, Tampico and Tuxtla Gutierrez are already served directly, and flights to other Mexican destinations are in the works.
Merida International Airport is a fully modern but very user-friendly facility that served more than 1.9 million passengers in 2016. This figures reflects an increase of 17 percent from the 1.6 million passengers served by the airport 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 areas, air operations and taxi service. Measures have also been implemented to increase security in the management of passenger luggage to avoid mishaps.
