The Mexican airline company will link Peru with Mexico City, Cancun, and San José de Costa Rica. The air connectivity of the Mexican Caribbean is becoming stronger with the arrival of new flights and routes to the destinations of Quintana Roo, consolidating its leadership worldwide.
On June 1st, the inaugural Lima-Cancun flight was carried out with the low-cost airline of the travel company Volaris. The new Lima-Cancún route is mainly focused on recreational tourism with seven frequencies a week, directly attending to the growing demand of Peruvian travelers, of which in the first four months of the year alone, the Mexican Caribbean registered more than 33,000 arrivals.
According to data from the Federal Tourism Secretariat (Mexico), the arrival of Peruvian tourists to the national territory increased by 64% from 2020 to 2021 and this sector had a share of 2.5% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2021 and its pre- pandemic, before 2020, was 3.9%.
Within the framework of this start of operations, the Secretary of Tourism (SEDETUR) in Quintana Roo (Mexico), represented by its head Bernardo Cueto and Lizzie Cole, executive director of Promotion of the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo, were accompanied by a delegation made up of hoteliers and tourist entrepreneurs before the presentation of the destination to more than 190 tour operators and travel agents with the purpose of publicizing the novelties of the Mexican Caribbean.
