CANCÚN – Starting in September, the air carrier Air Europa will add three weekly flights from Madrid to Cancún aimed at reinforcing its connectivity with the Caribbean, especially in the off-season.
Spain is considered one of the “top ten” countries with largest number of tourists visiting Cancún, with an average of more than 300,000 in the last three years, and it is the second most important European market for Cancún’s tourism as well.
The airline informed in a statement that they have begun an expansion of low – season air services since June 2017, departing from Madrid at Barajas International Airport to Cancun and Punta Cana, one of the main destinations and rivals in the Caribbean.
Both routes are operated by the Airbus A330 equipment with capacity for 275 seats in tourist class and 24 in business class. The company also features in its aircrafts: WiFi connection and a Streaming service, which allows the passengers to download free audiovisual content on their personal devices.
In addition to the natural beauty of the destination, six out of 10 hotel rooms in the Cancun and Riviera Maya belong to Spanish hotel chains such as Sol Meliá, NhHotels, Riu Hotels, Barceló Hotels & Resort, Iberoestar Hotels & Resort, Palladium Hotel Group, among others.
There are 94 hotels that belong to Spanish chains in the state; in Benito Juárez there are 18, according to the Cancun Hotel Association (AHC), and although the figure seems low, the number of rooms on average is important.
It should be noted that throughout this year new routes have started operations, both nationally and internationally: just in the summer holidays have been launched: Mexico City – Chetumal, Cancun – Chetumal, Belize – Chetumal, Guadalajara – Cozumel, Monterrey – Cozumel, as well as many other connections with Canada and the United States.
