CANCUN, Quintana Roo.- Calafia Airlines and the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies (AMAV) presented the Cancun-Palenque route, which will provide an opportunity for tourists to make circuits throughout the Mayan World in the states of  southeast Mexico.

European tourism, mainly, has a holiday of up to a month, so the objective is to provide a diversified offer in Southeast Mexico, having the state of Chiapas as an ally in culture and nature tourism.

“We have 25 years of experience as an airline, we started in 2014 as a commercial airline, and we arrived in Cancún through a marketing study that we did with the government of Chiapas. And now, we start with two weekly flights. We are expecting a total of  12,000 passengers served by November of this year, ” said Aldo Leyva Montes, commercial director of Calafia Airlines.

It was on November 1 when they signed the agreements for the promotion of this new route, Puebla-Tuxtla Gutiérrez-Palenque-Cancún, which aims to connect European tourists, who often take Cancun as their gateway.

Leyva Montes said he plans to work with Expedia, PriceTravel, BestDay so that their flights can be available on their platforms.
