Cancun prepares to receive more than 9 million passengers this winter

For the period from September 2022 to February 2023, a total of 9.2 million flight seats will be available to Cancun International Airport, 38% more than in the same period in 2019announced the head of the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo (CPTQ), Darío Flota Ocampo.

Fortunately, Mexico has been more flexible than other countries in its entry requirements, which is good news for tourists.

All restrictions related to COVID-19 have been lifted as of January and visitors no longer need to present proof of vaccination or negative test to enter the country.

Miguel Torruco Marqués expressed pride at the government’s decision to allow foreign travelers to enter the country during the pandemic.

Torruco said: “The tourism sector on a national scale has returned with strength to face the coming years. Another aspect to highlight is that the foreign direct investment generated from January to June 2022 rose to 2,779 million dollars, already surpassing the records of 2019 when the number was 1,295 million dollars. It represents a growth of 303.4% compared to 2021 investments.”

a few days ago, Mexican authorities have announced that certain citizens, including residents of the US and Canada, can stay for up to 180 days and that they no longer need to complete the “Forma Migratoria Multiple (FMM)” upon arrival in Cancun.

Local authorities hope that with this new update, wait times for travelers will drop from an hour to a few minutes.

According to FlightConnections, there are currently 43 direct flights from the United States to Cancun. From major cities like Miami, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston and Washington, all major airlines offer flights to Cancun.

To offer visitors better mobility, more travel alternatives and more fascinating attractions, employees in the Quintana Roo region are also working on major development projects such as the Tulum International Airport and the Maya Train Project.

In addition, the government has worked to ensure the safety of travelers by addressing all issues and dangers.

A few days ago, it was announced that undercover police would patrol Tulum beaches and other tourist areas to protect visitors. This summer, 300 military personnel were assigned to guard Cancun’s beaches.
