Thursday March 3 marked an important air connectivity milestone, as Merida is linked to Dallas, Texas with a new option from American Airlines.
With this new direct route, which will provide round-trip nonstop service five days a week, Yucatan will add to its international air options that already include flights to Miami, Houston, Toronto, Italy, Cuba and Belize.
“With this new route, American Airlines now will have 21 destinations in Mexico, operating 120 flights daily between the two countries,” said Art Torno, international senior vice president of the airline.
The most recent connections achieved in this administration, headed by Gov. Rolando Zapata Bello, are those of Italy, Canada and now Dallas, Texas.
Tentatively expected Thursday is the arrival of Enrique de la Madrid Cordero, Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism, for the opening ceremony of this flight to Merida International Airport.
Apparently the secretary also comes to preside over a meeting of the World Yucatan Maya.
The new flight will leave the International Airport of Dallas-Forth Worth at 12:30 p.m. with the number 1616, to reach Merida at 2:50 p.m.
Later, at 3:50 pm, the American Airlines plane will return to Dallas as flight 1018, to arrive at this Texas town at 6:20 p.m.
In Dallas, Meridanos will benefit from connections to over 120 destinations in the United States and the rest of the world.
According to information provided by the airline, this route will be covered with Airbus A319 aircraft, with capacity to comfortably carry 128 passengers in two classes.
It is a next-generation aircraft and is the newest of its fleet.
Travelers can enjoy this service to Dallas by American Airlines five times a week, and take advantage of connections at the airport to travel to other sites.
