Another US airline adds nonstop flights to Tulum

American Airlines is the third U.S. airline to announce service to Tulum, with four new direct flights out of three cities, as the opening date of the new airport approaches.

The airport is set to commence operations in December and will offer international flights between the U.S. and Mexico beginning in March 2024.

The Dallas, Texas-based airline will operate four daily flights across three routes to Tulum beginning March 28, 2024, with two daily flights from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), one daily flight from Miami International Airport (MIA) and one daily flight from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT).

Whether passengers fly nonstop or connect through one of these American hubs, the carrier said that with these routes, over 200 U.S. cities will be able to connect to Tulum.  

Flight tickets are set to go on sale Nov. 13.

The first U.S. airline to announce flights to Tulum was Delta Airlines with a daily nonstop service from Atlanta International Airport (ATL). After Delta, ultra-low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines became the second U.S. carrier to announce flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).

Between the new airport and the inauguration of the Maya Train, tourism to the area around Tulum is estimated to exceed four million visitors in 2024.
