After suspending flights between the UK and the Mexican Caribbean from August 15 to September 24 this year, Cancun International Airport has re-established full connectivity with the UK.
Benjamin Jiménez, director of strategic planning for the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council (CPTQ), reports that between November this year and March 2022, Cancun will receive a total of 344 flights from both British Airways and the European wholesaler TUI, the which implies an availability. of 100,000 aircraft seats for this period.
This figure is only 4% lower than the number of places available from November 2019 to March 2020, the official explained, a practically marginal difference with respect to pre-pandemic levels.
He has admitted that the winter period is not the period with the highest influx of British visitors to the Mexican Caribbean, traveling mostly between September and October, however, the fact that airlines have resumed their flights even in a season that is not high . The lawsuit speaks to the importance of Cancun for British travelers.
Regarding the restoration of Cozumel International Airport, which is also operated by Asur as well as Cancun, Benjamin Jiménez has commented that the island has virtually restored the air connectivity it had before the pandemic, i.e. it currently has flights to 10 cities in the United States and two in Canada in addition to flights to Mexico City.
He said the only route that has not been restored is from Cozumel to Cancun, which was operated by Maya Air before the health crisis, but these are very short flights with small planes representing a small volume of passengers. However, the flights currently offered by Cozumel already account for 15% more availability of aircraft seats for the period from November 2021 to March 2022, compared to the same period from 2019-2020, which means virtually a full recovery of the island’s air connectivity. had before the epidemic, he added.
The only route that has not been restored is the Cozumel-Cancun route, which was operated by Maya Air before the health crisis, but which involves very short flights with small planes representing a small volume of passengers.
