Beginning on March 26, Viva Aerobús will inaugurate the first weekly flights from Santiago de Cuba, Cuba’s second-largest city, to Cancun. Flights will depart on Thursdays, and they will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft, which has the capacity to carry 186 passengers.

Interjet, meanwhile, is scheduled to operate a new flight from Miami to Cancun.

Last year, the Cancun International Airport added 32 new flights, said Carlos Trueba Coll, director of the Cancun International Airport. “This year we have the objective of continuing to increase routes, including flights from Asia,” he said, adding that the increase was not expected to be at the same as in years’ past.

Currently, The Cancun International Airport features 130 connections from 30 countries, 40 of which are from the U.S.

In other developments, Trueba said plans are underway for a 125-room airport hotel. At press time, further details were not available.
