New direct flights announced to Los Cabos, Monterrey and Cozumel

Three destinations in Mexico will now have more direct flights available.

Los Cabos-Cancún

Starting in May, Los Cabos and Cancún will be connected with a daily VivaAerobus flight, according to the president of the Los Cabos Hotel Association, Mauricio Pérez. The estimated flight duration is 3.5 hours.


Another new direct flight, between Phoenix, Arizona and Monterrey, Nuevo León was launched by American Airlines on Jan. 10. The daily flight, operated on an Embraer 175, departs Phoenix nightly at 7:50 p.m. and arrives in Monterrey at 11 p.m. The return flight takes off at 8 a.m. and arrives at 9:40 a.m.

“Mexico is Phoenix’s number one trade and tourism partner which makes air service to Monterrey increasingly important for our local economy,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego.

Mexico City (AICM)-Cozumel

Starting on Mar. 26, Cozumel, Quintana Roo will be added to the list of Aeroméxico’s domestic network flying out of Mexico City International Airport (AICM).

The announcement was made by both the airline and the state governor Mara Lezama Espinosa, who highlighted through social media that Aeroméxico was announcing this new route from Mexico City to the “isla de las golondrinas,” or “island of the swallows”, as it is also known.

“With this extraordinary news, more work and income will arrive on the island […] Welcome to Cozumel everybody!” said Lezama on her social media profiles.

In total, the company announced four new direct routes, all departing from the AICM, to Colima, Cozumel, Tepic and Ciudad Victoria.
