The Merida International Airport is already the eighth most important in the country…

MERIDA – On December 1, the Mérida-Atlanta route was inaugurated, operated by Aeromexico, with daily flights and a capacity for 99 passengers.

Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport in the state of Georgia is the air hub with the largest movement of passengers in the United States and the world, mobilizing 104 million people each year, above those of Beijing, China, ( 94 million), Dubai, United Arab Emirates, (83 million passengers) and Los Angeles, California, (80 million passengers). As a comparison, the most important airport in New York, the John F. Kennedy, mobilizes 59 million passengers annually.

The Hartsfield-Jackson Airport has the highest connectivity with the entire US territory, since it connects with 150 destinations in that country, and is two hours away from 80% of the United States cities thanks to its strategic location.

In addition, it has connections with 75 international destinations in 50 countries around the world; situation that gives an unprecedented reach to the state of Yucatan. Now, a tourist from a city like Seattle, Chicago or New York, can fly to Atlanta and from there have a direct connection to Yucatan, which expands the tourist and business possibilities in our state.

In 2012, the airport in the Yucatan capital was the tenth most important in the country, with 130 domestic flights arriving each week, and seven international weekly flights (to the cities of Miami once a week, Houston three times a week, and Havana once a week).

Now, until October 2017 the Merida International Airport is the eighth most important in the country, due to its 211 weekly flights to domestic destinations and 17 weekly flights to international destinations (an increase of 142%).

The new international routes include the important aerial hubs of Dallas and Milan, whose routes were inaugurated in 2015 to be activated during certain seasons of the year, as well as the daily flight that operates American Airlines between Merida and Miami.

In total, there are 25 thousand 979 seats available on weekly flights that arrive at the Merida International Airport “Manuel Crescencio Rejón”.
