With two new international frequencies, the International Airport of Merida “Manuel Crescencio Rejón” (MID) will expand its connectivity abroad starting on November 2019.
The new routes are Mérida-La Habana (Cuba) and Mérida-Toronto (Canada), as was announced the Southeast Airport Group (Asur).
Héctor Navarrete Muñoz, general director of Asur, stressed that November will be a very positive month for Mérida’s air terminal and stressed that these two new flights will increase the arrival of passengers for the season, since they had already exceeded the two million figure so far this year.
The Merida-Havana route used to have two flights a week (Sundays and Thursdays), but now the Mexican airline “Interjet” will open five more weekly frequencies, and starting on Sunday, November 3, there will be a daily flight to Havana.
This will increase the flow to more than two thousand passengers, in addition to the creation of an “ultralight” or “low cost” fare, so that Cuban travelers can be able to travel with a 10 kilogram hand luggage at a preferential rate.
Since 2009, when “Interjet” began operating in Cuba, almost 23 thousand people have traveled to that island.
While in the case of the Merida-Toronto flight, it will start operating on Tuesday, November 26 and the frequency will last until April 2020.
This will encourage the arrival of Canadians to Yucatecan lands, some of which own property here, and others come to vacation every year and enjoy the tourist attractions.
Navarrete Muñoz stressed that for this Hanal Pixán (Day of the Dead) holiday, more than 1,500 mucipollos or “pibs” will be transported through the airline to different regions of the country, Mexico City being the main destination, followed by Veracruz, Villahermosa and Oaxaca.
