New direct flight Mérida – Havana coming in May


It has been confirmed that on May 2016, Mexican air carrier Aeromar will reinstall a direct flight between  Mérida, Yucatán and Havana, Cuba.

This flight adds to the growing local air connectivity that now links “La Ciudad Blanca” with destinations such as Milán, Italiy; Toronto, Canada; Houston and Dallas Fort Worth, Texas; Miami, Florida and Belize City.

The historic relation between Cuba and Yucatán goes back a long way. But in terms of air connectivity, the last time there was a direct flight, was back in the 1990s when extinct Mexicana de Aviación, used to have a Mexico City – Mérida – Havana flight, three times a week.


Nowadays, if you want to travel from Mérida to Havana, you need to go to Mexico City and then take either an Aeromexico or Cubana de Aviación flight; despite the short distance between the peninsula and the island.

Finally, the official announcement by the state government authorities will be made on April, with details on frequency and number fo flights.
