This year, direct flights to Mexico will have millions of new seats!

Published on : Thursday, August 16, 2018

indexThe Mexico Tourism Board or MTB declared that the global air connectivity of Mexico carries on with its growth trajectory with the addition of 1.5 million seats on direct flights to Mexico this year. The growth in air connectivity is anticipated to introduce 30 million seats by the end of the year to contain travel demands of the top tourist destinations of Mexico. The country welcomed over 10.6 million visitors in the first quarter of 2018, a record-breaking number representing a 12.6 percent growth in comparison to the 9.4 million documented international visitor arrivals during the same time in 2017.

At present, Mexico is the 6th most visited country in the world with 39.3 million overseas visitors in 2017, of which 18.6 million traveled by air. Also, tourism revenue increased by 7.2% in the first quarter of this year over the same period last year, reaching almost $6.2 billion. The strong commitment of Mexico to increasing air connectivity to match consumer demand has caused investments in developing close partnerships with airlines, hotels, and the tourism industry, expanding tourism products, promoting new and established destinations, and providing travelers Mexico’s world-famous friendliness, hospitality and first-class service.

“Increasing air connectivity is a critical component of our tourism growth strategy,” said Enrique de la Madrid, Secretary of Tourism. “The expansion of air routes not only offers visitors from all corners of the globe better access to all that Mexico has to offer, it also solidifies Mexico’s appeal to the business sector. Mexico is a world of its own, and the demand for access to its beaches, vibrant cities and magical towns is a winning proposition for the airline industry.”
