Mexican air carrier VivaAerobus announced on Monday February 22nd its new Merida-Veracruz route, which will begin operations on Friday July 1st. Tickets are now on sale, priced from $720 pesos ($32 USD), one way total price.
“Merida has a close economic, social, cultural and educational relationship with Veracruz. Now anyone who wants to travel to this city either for pleasure, work or to visit family has an option for a really affordable price,” said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of the airline.
With this route, the airline now connects Mérida with four major domestic destinations as it adds to Monterrey, Guadalajara and Mexico City.
“In Yucatan, private aviation is growing at a rapid pace boosting the state’s economy, this activity has been triggered by the mobility of businesses, and by the growing number of conventions, expos and special events as Mérida is becoming an important reference for corporative and social events such as high end weddings that are taking place at exclusive haciendas, said secretary of Tourism Promotion, Saul Ancona Salazar.
The official also announced that the Blue Panorama flight Merida-Milan released a special offer this week: with the purchase of a 610 euros round trip ticket (Merida-Milan-Merida), a train ticket to Rome, Florence or Venice is included!
Airport authorities declared that 2015 was an outstanding year for the local aviation sector, as the number of private flights grew exponentially. Asur, company operator of International Airport of Mérida , reported that the figure jumped from 12 flights per day in 2014, to an average of 50, even reaching the figure of 75 flights per day during high season.
“Air connectivity is essential to position Yucatan as a major tourist destination considering that we are thousands of miles away from the three main domestic tourism markets, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Mexico City,” said Saul Ancona.
“Considering these three cities have the greatest number of tourists moving from other towns to take flights bound to the main tourist destinations, air connectivity is essential for Merida to position itself as a major national and international tourist destination.
The Secretary of Tourism Promotion, Saul Ancona Salazar concluded: “At the airport in Merida an average of 116 daily operations take place every day, between commercial and private aviation flights, this number will increase this year with more than 10 flights per day. The number of aircraft seats increased from 13,000 in 2012 to 19,000 in 2015.”
