Director Dario Flota Ocampo, Tourists Development Director for the province of Quintana Roo said airlines from the United States, Canada and Europe are expected to begin operating service to the Mexican Caribbean in early June of 2020.
As a result, tourism officials have started developing a campaign aimed at reviving local tourism that will launch in late May. Ocampo believes the first wave of returning tourists will be there for conventions and weddings that were already booked.
Airlines resuming their operations at the Cancun International Airport are Air Canada, Air Transat, Delta Airlines, Copa Airlines, Air Europa, Sunwing, Southwest and Aeromexico, Ocampo announced.
Other airlines will announce their schedules later this month.
While flights are expected to resume in June, the Hotel Association of Cancun, Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres said that more than 155 area hotels remain temporarily closed, but are ready serve travellers when they arrive in the coming months and especially in the fall and winter season.
Ocampo said the first phase of the plan is to restart flights to key international hubs in Mexico like Cancun, Cozumel and Chetumal. Once the service resumes, travellers will be welcomed back with a new set of health and hygiene protocols developed by the government. The airport and each hotel will be obligated to work with these new protocols insuring the safety and health of employees and travellers.
All local attractions including theme parks and national historical sites will also reopen in June, with the new health and safety protocols in place.
