Share The Article

Cancun anticipates to receive more visitors from Europe, namely Portugal and Spain, in response to its expansion of flights in the month of March. Mexico’s beautiful city Cancun contains ideal climate and attractive beaches that compel an increasing number of European and international foreigners annually, and as the city opens new flight routes, a surge in visitors is established.

With Europeans looking for the perfect getaway this travel season, major travel agencies located in Europe such as Spain’s Iberojet, are making adjustments to their airlines in order to consolidate flight services to Cancun. 

Although Darío Flota Ocampo, head of the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo had previously indicated that flights from Spain to Cancun had not resumed due to Spaniards associating the number of COVID-19 cases in Mexico City with Cancun, things have begun to change for Cancun and its Europe-based visitors.

March 8 has been set as the official date for Madrid’s flight to arrive in Cancun, as confirmed by Ocampos statement “We had already announced that on March 8, the flight from Madrid with airline Evelop of Grupo Barceló will arrive.’’

The passengers arriving on the flight will be receiving a warm welcome through a reception arranged in honour of attending one of the first flights from Spain to arrive, which will be on airplane Airbus 350.
