Quintana Roo Opening for Travel in June

The Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council, the tourism collective for the state of Quintana Roo, recently announced that the state will be reopening in early June, with the return of airline operations from multiple international airlines, the reopening of some hotels, attractions and theme parks, and a special campaign to promote the step forward.

In an article published by Riviera Maya News, Darío Flota Ocampo, the director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council, named eight airlines who are resuming flights to the Cancun International Airport:

  • Aeroméxico
  • Air Canada
  • Air Europa
  • Air Transat
  • Copa Airlines
  • Delta Airlines
  • Southwest
  • Sunwing

According to Flota Ocampo, Quintana Roo’s recovery strategy will initially focus on reestablishing direct air connectivity at the state’s three major airports: Cancun International Airport, Cozumel International Airport and Chetumal International Airport. According to Riviera Maya News, the strategy, “all members of the industry will be informed about the destination’s disposition to receive visitors and about the reinforced state health and hygiene protocols that are applied in areas most frequented by tourists.”

Cancun remains one of the most-shopped destinations by the 124,000 travel advisors who use VAX and the return of the key leisure travel destination would be a welcomed and needed boon to the industry.
