March, 2024

Mara Lezama, the governor of the state of Quintana Roo, has announced a new flight route to be opened between McAllen and Cancún. The route will be operated by Volaris, and will begin operations on July 3rd.

This new route will significantly increase flight connectivity between Quintana Roo and more than 40 cities in the United States, which represents a considerable boon to the region’s tourist and cultural industries.

The route will operate biweekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with departures from Cancún scheduled for 12:15, and returns from McAllen at 16:05. This will allow travellers to enjoy a direct and uncomplicated travel experience, facilitating access to both regions’ tourist and cultural attractions.

The governor highlighted the importance of this route as a contributor to a “new era of tourism” in Quintana Roo, and she reiterated her administration’s commitment to promoting unforgettable tourist experiences for all visitors to the state. In addition to strengthening the local economy and promoting a broader cultural exchange between the two regions, the new route will further solidify Cancún’s International Airport as an important nexus for international tourism in the country.
