One million new seats scheduled for flights to Mexico in 2017

The Mexico Tourism Board has announced that Mexico’s global air connectivity continues to grow at a record pace, with airlines around the world adding new routes, additional flights on existing routes, and upgrading to the latest aircraft models with larger capacities in order to meet demand for travel to Mexico.

As of January 2017, airline partners have announced the addition of more than 1 million new seats scheduled in 2017 on international direct flights to Mexico from more than 20 countries.

“This expansion includes service to Mexico from many new international cities to multiple Mexico destinations, which is part of our strategy of international market diversification. We are delighted to see our airline industry partners continue to recognize this momentum and further expand their connectivity,” said Lourdes Berho, CEO of the Mexico Tourism Board.

“While the 2016 Mexico tourism numbers are still being finalized, it’s clear that we will have another record-setting year of industry-leading growth in terms of international visitors to Mexico.”

Mexico’s international tourism has grown at an annual average of 10 per cent since 2013, double the global industry average. This performance has seen Mexico rise from 15th (2013) to 9th (2015) most visited country in the world, according to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).
