The first direct flight Dublin-Cancun finally started operations in June 2016. This new service that was announced months ago by the Mexican embassy in Ireland is operated by Falcon Holidays and Thomson, a TUI Group company.
The first stage of this pilot plan will operate once a week for six weeks, but since Ireland is one of the European countries that sends the most tourists to Mexico (even more than Germany, Italy and Holland), the embassy knows this flight has great potential and is sure it won’t take long before it becomes a regular route.
With a capacity for 300 people, the 787 Dreamliner jet operated by Thomson Airways will not only fly vacation-goers but business men and women the same, given that Cancun is the door to other vacation destinations in the Yucatan Peninsula such as the Mayan Riviera, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Chichen Itza, Uxmal, among others; but it also is a connection spot to Mexico City, the U.S., Central and South America.
According to the Tourism Ministry (SECTUR), the number of Irish tourists in Mexico in 2015 was over 24 thousand passengers, 10.6% more than the previous year. The tourist influx to this destination will rise, making the hotel occupancy go up as well. This direct flight will definitely make the Irish tourist number grow; it actually grew 83% between 2011 and 2015.
Eduardo Rivadeneyra, the man in charge of Cancun’s air terminal’s Public Relations, points out that the national passenger flow grew 9.7% with 566 thousand tourists transferred, in comparison with the 516 thousand that traveled May last year. The passenger traffic in Cancun’s International Airport increased 6.5% compared to the same month in 2015, which anticipates another good year for tourism.
He highlighted that with the sum of 1,721,183 national and international users, between arrivals and departures, the month of May closed with a record high in numbers of travelers flying in and out of Cancun’s International Airport.
