By Aaron Humes: Riviera Maya News reports that Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico, has received a first direct international flight, the American Eagle from Miami, Florida to Chetumal International Airport, landed on Wednesday with 76 passengers.
This first international flight to land in Chetumal in several years will run twice a week and promote the southern area of the state according to governor Carlos Joaquin, opening up the potential to continue attracting more routes from other airlines and, of course, more international tourism arrivals
Darío Flota Ocampo from the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council acknowledged that the new flight is not currently being promoted, however, they are hoping to do so in the new year.
“This pioneering flight in the state capital will benefit the entire southern region and expand its tourist offer, contributing to our objective of strengthening the economy and development of this region,” Joaquin said during the inauguration of the flight’s arrival.
Vicky Uzal, commercial director at American Airlines for Mexico said, “this year, American celebrates 40 years of serving in the state of Quintana Roo, operating from Cancun, and today, with our new service in Chetumal, we will offer better access to tourists who wish to visit the capital of the state as well as the tourist destinations of Bacalar and different archaeological sites nearby.”
Chetumal borders the Corozal district of Belize and with the announcement that our land borders will open early in 2022, meaning a return of visitors to Chetumal and nearby areas from Belize, readers may be wise to keep an eye on the flights and prices.
