Air connectivity is increasing at the Merida International Airport (MID). This month, it was announced that a new daily direct flight from Mexico City’s Toluca Airport will start on Sept. 9 with Viva Aerobus.
With this new route, Yucatan increases the number of available direct national air routes to nine. Air route recovery now exceeds 100% of the supply of seats that had been available on domestic routes prior to the pandemic. International routes have recovered part of pre-pandemic frequencies, with direct and non-stop flights to Merida from Dallas, Houston, Miami, Oakland and Tijuana/San Diego.
In addition, new air routes connecting the Guatemalan city of Flores operated by TAG Airlines expands access across the Maya World, and the reactivation of the flight from León Guanajuato to Mérida, operated by Volaris, connects two of the most historically rich states on Mexico’s map.
On June 13, the U.S. State Department updated its travel advisory for Mexico, pointing out that there is no restriction on the state of Yucatan. “Exercise normal precautions,” the advisory reads. “There are no restrictions on travel for U.S. government employees in Yucatan state.”
