United Airlines has announced an expansion of service towards Mexico’s new Tulum airport, alongside enhancement to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Thanks to a significant service enhancement, United can offer more flights than ever down South during the winter schedule.

More Flights To Mexico’s New Tulum Airport

United will add Houston, Chicago and Newark flights towards Tulum International Airport from March 31, 2024.

Meanwhile, on May 23, 2024, United will add a daily seasonal service from Los Angeles. This will result in up to five daily flights towards Tulum from United’s critical hubs.

United Airlines believes that Mexico remains a leading destination for leisure travel, and thanks to Tulum’s new airport, it represents fantastic access to the city of Cancun.

Thanks to service enhancement, United Airlines will be the largest airline between the U.S. and the Rivera Maya region.

Additionally, it’ll have its most significant schedule in company history to Cancun, with more than 200 weekly flights from eight cities in the United States.

Comments From Executives

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. 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.

Patrick Quayle, United’s senior vice president of Network Planning and Alliances.
