New Flight Offers Direct Route to Italy from Mérida
By Stewart Mandy
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. The aircraft can also carry four tons of cargo.
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. Following the event, the Governor then returned to Mérida onboard the inaugural flight.
Blue Panorama Airlines is a privately owned Italian airline, founded in 1998. Flights leave Mérida at between 9.30pm – 10pm depending on the day, make a stop in Cancun, and arrive in Milan the following day at 5.55pm – 6.15pm. Return flights leave the Italian city at 3.00pm, traveling direct to Mérida, where arrival is scheduled for 8.30pm (all times local). A random search conducted today found fares as low as €733 round trip including taxes in economy class, or €1878 in business class.
