PLAYA DEL CARMEN — Playa del Carmen will have the first maritime terminal in the country with a heliport, during the first half of 2017, which will seek to diversify these facilities with the air transport offering attractive for tourists.
For this, they are carrying out the preliminary work for the adequacy of the roof of the building, recently officially inaugurated by authorities and the company Navega, while specifying the permission of the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics and the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT).

At least eight flights of 15 minutes each per day,” said Miguel Angel Vidal, president of Aerocopter.
