“Cancún has been a successful route, we have had occupancy factors that exceed 90% (…) It is not only about developing a connection between Guatemala Y cancunbut we also offer different points in Central America, for example, in the case of Honduras it does not have a direct flight, otherwise they would have to travel to Mexico City”.

“What we see is that not only is tourism developing, but an evolution of commercial activity is achieved, in addition to an increase in tourists to Mexico and Guatemala with an important potential of European passengers who are interested in knowing the Maya world who enter through Guatemala to get to know Tikal and seek to reach the Yucatan peninsula to visit the archaeological sites of Chichen Itza, Uxmal or vice versa is a route that has been successful and the same promoted in December 2021 to connect directly between Cancun and Flores Petén”, Julio Gamero concluded.
