Cancun Airport Flights Expand

Cancun Airport is open (in fact it never closed) and now is starting to see more flights arriving. After a few months of very slow air traffic to the Cancun International Airport, flights are returning. For example  May of 2020 saw a 96.6% drop in arrivals at the Cancun Airport over the same time last year. But this drastic reduction of arrivals is reversing course. As of Sunday the 14th of June there were 14 flights. Ten of the flights were national and 4 international. Flights were arriving from Philadelphia, Miami, and Dallas. Recently there have been flights connecting Chicago, Charlotte, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Montreal, and Buenos Aires. 

As more and more countries open their boarders and travel restrictions are lowered, people are traveling again. Recently on June 8th Playa Del Carmen started opening to tourists, as did the Riviera Maya. People working in the tourist industry are seeing some positive movement toward a new normal. This optimism was also reflected in our recent reader polls

Airlines from the United States currently servicing the Cancun Airport are American, United, and Sun Country Airlines. Spirit Airlines is expected to resume service to Cancun on June 25th. Most international visitors are arriving from the United States, we do expect Canada to lessen travel restrictions for July, as we should start to welcoming Canadians to the Riviera Maya.
