This week United Airlines announced it will have nonstop flights to Mexico’s upcoming Tulum International Airport.
Starting in March 2024, the airline will begin offering nonstop flights from select U.S airports, including New York/Newark, Los Angeles, Houston, and Chicago, Travel Pulse reported.
On May 23, 2024, United says it will add daily seasonal service from Los Angeles, with up to five daily flights from its hubs to Tulum.
Travelers can begin booking on November 18, 2023.
Tulum has become a top Mexico destination, with travelers having to fly into other parts of Mexico—specifically Cancun to get there. The new airport will now make it easier for travelers to get there.
“Tulum is at the top of a lot of travel lists – great beaches and restaurants, and a region featuring a rich history and spectacular natural beauty,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s senior vice president of Network Planning and Alliances. “Our new direct flights help people get there faster than ever, giving them even more time to enjoy one of Mexico’s most unique destinations.”
