Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport, much anticipated, has finally opened in Tulum. Starting for Friday, there will be five domestic flights each day, and many international routes will follow shortly.

The new airport will get two daily Aeroméxico flights from Mexico City International Airport (AICM) and Viva Aerobus services from AICM and Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), which is located immediately north of Mexico City, during its initial phase of operations.

President López Obrador went to Tulum to launch the new airport after his Friday morning press conference. There, he spoke briefly and congratulated the project’s engineers and builders on their work.

The initial flights, according to Viva Aerobus, will have an average occupancy of 94.5%, highlighting how well-liked the Caribbean destination’s white sand beaches and Maya ruins are. In its first month of operation, the new airport anticipates 700,000 passengers.
