New air connectivity expected to bring more Koreans to Cancun
CANCUN, Q.Roo — The establishment of new flight connections from Seoul, South Korea to Mexico City that will start operations in May is expected to benefit the connectivity with the Mexican Caribbean. The destination is not yet ready for a direct flight link, said Cassio Luiselli Fernandez, Mexico’s ex-Ambassador to South Korea, Uruguay and South Africa, at the inauguration of a representative model of the United Nations at the Anahuac University, in Cancún.
“It is an important step for people from that country to approach the beaches of Quintana Roo, once they step on Mexican soil, they can easily travel to these destinations. Koreans generally prefer modernity, they like communication, they are attracted to nature, they are friendly with their culture and gastronomy, as well as with sports, but to attract them, we must certify doctors who speak their language, for them it is important,” Luiselli Fernandez said.
About the insecurity
In spite of the insecurity that has been experienced in Cancun in recent months, the ex-ambassador stated that the violence wave does not represent any warning and negative impact on the flow of tourists to the region, as it is not as dramatic as in other states of the country, and being an important destination for tourism, he hopes that the numbers of visitors don’t decrease.
According to the Cancun Office of Visitors and Conventions (OVC), this year the destination is expecting substantial growth in tourist arrivals from the Asian continent through the realization of international fairs.
