MÉRIDA, YUCATÁN – On Monday April 13th, 2015; the first flight from Milan, Italy, landed at Mérida’s Manuel Crescencio Rejón International Airport. Blue Panorama Airlines will fly between the two cities every Monday during the winter season, increasing to twice a week in the summer (Monday and Friday) utilizing a 276 seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft equipped with business and economy class seating.

At the inaugural event in Milan before the flight left, Yucatán Governor Rolando Zapata Bello, who was on a visit to Italy thanked the airline for its confidence and highlighted the new opportunities that the opening of this route will provide.
