Cancun, Q.R. — A New York woman became Cancun Airport’s 25th million passenger over the weekend, which she says, was her eighth visit to the city.
With mariachis playing Cielito Lindo, Mrs. Lisa Friedman from New York became the airport’s 25th million passenger for 2018, helping the Cancun International Airport set a new record.
Friedman arrived in Cancun for her eighth vacation via American Airlines. She was welcomed at the airport by local authorities. She was traveling with her husband Joe, daughters Samantha and Sara and four others who were set to spend an 8-day vacation between Cancun and Riviera Maya.
“I feel very excited. It is an honor because I love Mexico and coming to Cancun is something that we do every year for the past eight years. I am very happy to come. It is a beautiful place and the people are very hospitable,” explained Friedman excitedly.
When questioned about security, she said that she vacations without any worries and recommended other travelers visit Cancun.
For being number 25 million, Mrs. Friedman was awarded two open, round-trip tickets for them to return to Cancun along with other gifts from varying sponsors.
The family, who arrived in Terminal 3 on December 30, were greeted by Municipal President Mara Lezama Espinos and the Assistant Secretary for Tourism Promotion of Quintana Roo, Máximo García Rocha along with the General Director of the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo, Darío Flota, the Station Manager for American Airlines, Alfredo Jaimes and the Institutional Relations Manager of the Cancun Airport Alejandro Rosel Ramírez.
Only 12 days before did passenger 24 million, a man from France, land at the Cancun International Airport with his wife.
