Cancún, the most important Mexican Caribbean tourist destination, is now connected with 12 different cities in the United States.
American Airlines has just announced that four new flights to Cancun from the United States are now available to travelers, therefore reaching 166 flights a week to the Mexican Caribbean.
“With the addition of these new routes, American Airlines becomes the first airline with 685 flights a week to Mexico”, said Alfredo Jaimes, American Airlines Regional Operation Chief.
Currently this US airline has 12 direct flights to the gorgeous Mexican Caribbean from several destinations, including flights that every Saturday will depart from international airports in Raleigh-Durham, Pittsburgh, Nashville and Kansas City.
The flights will be operated with A319 and B737 aircrafts with capacity for 125 and 160 passengers, respectively, a fact that will help to accommodate the constant flow of tourists that fly to Cancun due to the Spring Break season.
In reference to the new routes, the airline said that Cancun is currently the number one tourist destination in Mexico and one of the most important in Latin America. In fact in 2015 the International Airport of Cancun exceeded 19 million passengers.
The director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau (OVC), Jesus Almaguer Salazar concluded: “It is relevant because these flights increase the number of American visitors in a significant way, and obviously the U.S. is our main market. These new routes will help to strengthen the growth rate we’ve had in recent years”.
