Cancun, Q.R. — Darío Flota Ocampo, director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council, reported that this summer there will be new air routes including the return of flights from Canada. “Air Transat will become the first Canadian airline, which announced its return to the Mexican Caribbean by the end of this month from Montreal,” he stated.
Flota Ocampo added that during this season already, the region has begun with a positive presence of European visitors, a market that last year, was absent in Riviera Maya.
“Since the end of June, a new airline World2Fly began operating from Madrid twice a week, and last weekend, Airline Level arrived directly from Barcelona,” he said adding that the city is anticipating additional tourists as World2Fly begins flying from Lisbon to Cancun.
“So we will have four airlines flying from Madrid and three from Lisbon,” he stressed.
He also said that Cancun has received a new Avianca flight from Medellín, Colombia which will connect the cities three times a week.
“We also have announcements of more operations for the remainder of the year. In September, flights from Toronto will resume and Spirit announced a new route from Milwaukee, three times a week,” he said.
