Cancún, Q.R. — The Cancun International Airport has received its 24th million passenger, a figure that was anticipated with the airport saying they are hoping for their 25th million by the end of the year.
For the arrival of the 24th million passenger, Governor Carlos Joaquín was at the airport to greet French tourist Francois René Paul Pinotti and his wife who traveled from the east of France to spend two weeks in the state.
“We traveled to Quintana Roo to see destinations such as Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Cobá. We are sure that this will not be the last time we come because we have a lot of fun. People are extraordinary, they always smile,” said Francois René.
During the reception of passenger 24 million, Carlos Joaquin said that this number of passengers represents an advance for the tourism industry.
“We are receiving a million passengers more than last year, and we hope that by the end of the year, we will reach the figure of 25 million passengers at the Cancun airport,” said Governor Carlos Joaquín.
Carlos Trueba Coll, general manager of the Cancun International Airport said that according to ASUR statistics, December is the most dynamic month of the year.
The airport receives an average of two million passengers, which is why they anticipate that before the end of 2018, the terminal will reach 25 million passengers as initially estimated by the Ministry of Tourism.
Last year, the governor of Quintana Roo received the 23rd million passenger, María Isabel Velázquez Sánchez, while in 2016, he received passenger 21 million, Robert Evans.
