Cancun, Q.R. — As of March 8, the restructured airline Iberojet will begin arriving in Cancun from Madrid. Darío Flota Ocampo, head of the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo explained “we had already announced that on March 8, the flight from Madrid with airline Evelop of Grupo Barceló will arrive.
“Another airline division of theirs called Orbest that flies from Portugal, will arrive at the end of the month, both airlines that were owned by Iberojet. Now within their transformations, they will once again use the name that was encompassed in Iberworld.”
