Delta has recently announced plans to provide daily flights from Atlanta (Jackson Atlanta International Airport) to Tulum (Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport).
The new flights to Tulum’s newly established airport are set to begin by the end of March 2024.
Customers will get an opportunity to travel at their own convenience from the United States to Tulum. The flights to Tulum are set to operate annually on Delta’s 160-seat Boeing 737-800.
Tulum’s airport project
The launch of Tulum’s newly established Felipe Carrillo International Airport is expected to open up the Riviera Maya region to more tourists by December 2023. According to a statement by Mara Lezama Espinosa, the governor of Quintana Roo, the newly launched airport will provide visitors with endless opportunities to see what the Maya region has to offer.
Predictions from the project manager of the airport project (General Gustavo Ricardo Vallejo Suarez) reveal that the airport will be able to serve approximately 5.5 million people annually. The bulk (75%) of the arriving passengers are expected to come from overseas; most visitors are expected to come from Canada and the United States.
Why is Tulum growing in popularity?
