On May 23, United will also add daily seasonal service from Los Angeles, resulting in up to five daily flights from United’s hubs to Tulum this upcoming summer.
Mexico continues to be a leading leisure destination and Tulum has quickly emerged as one of Mexico’s most popular destinations for American travellers. Located approximately 90 miles south of Cancun, the new Tulum International Airport will give United customers more direct access to the city and more opportunities to travel to the ever-popular Riviera Maya region, complementing United’s existing services to Cancun and Cozumel.
“Tulum is at the top of a lot of travel lists – great beaches and restaurants, and a region featuring a rich history and spectacular natural beauty,” said United’s senior vice president of Network Planning and Alliances, Patrick Quayle.
“Our new direct flights help people get there faster than ever, giving them even more time to enjoy one of Mexico’s most unique destinations.”
This winter, United will be the largest airline between the U.S. and Riviera Maya region and will have the most flying to Cancun in its history. United will offer more than 200 weekly flights from eight U.S. cities to Cancun during the winter peak, including flights on the airline’s Boeing 777 widebody aircraft from Chicago, Denver and Houston.
United will also continue to fly between Cozumel and Chicago, Denver and Houston, operating up to 11 weekly flights this winter.
