Favorite Mexican Destination Receives More Direct FlightsBy Dania Vargas Austryjak
New air connections for Cancun, Mexico.
Cancun is considered Latin America’s most sought out destination. Inviting beaches, warm weather, great people and amazing nightlife. Its closeness to the Riviera Maya has made of Cancun a great vacationing spot. It is also a stopover point for other Mexican cities as well as international ones.
Last month, two new routes were inaugurated to connect Cancun even more. The first of these is the direct route from Orlando to Cancun, launched by Orange Air. This flight started its operations on July 1st. It has scheduled a thrice-weekly service for Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Return flights are scheduled to fly back on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Orange Air will be offering this flight on its 150-seat MD-83. “Orange Air is thrilled to be flying out of Orlando Sanford Airport where everything is simpler, faster and better,” said Humberto Rivero, VP Sales & Marketing for Orange Air quoted by airline news outlet anna.aero. “Orange Air is the fun way to fly, and at Sanford, vacations begin the minute you check-in.”
The next flight is from Mexican budget carrier, Volaris. This airline launched its first ever flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico, from Cancun. This service is offered on a twice-weekly frequency, and it is the only airline offering this route. The model for this route is the Airbus A320.
Besides these two American destinations getting connected to Cancun, there is another exciting route connecting directly to the Mexican Caribbean. Starting on May 2016, Turkish Airlines will become the first Middle Eastern carrier to land in Cancun.
This flight route would also be the first of Turkish Airlines to land in Mexico, becoming this airline’s third Latin-American destination. Later this year, the airline will open routes to Colombia, as a second Latin American destination, following Buenos Aires in Argentina.
