They project full recovery of Q. Roo in 2022

Cancun, QR. The state of Quintana Roo has already scheduled an offer for 2022 of 16.6 million airplane seats, which would be exceeding the levels of 2019, before the Covid-19 pandemic.

This was announced by Andrés Becerril Aguilar, in charge of the entity’s Secretariat of Tourism (Sedetur), during the presentation of the Gnex-Acotur Conference that started yesterday in Cancun and concludes this Wednesday.

The official stated that at least during the first four months of next year 6.13 million airplane seats are scheduled, which exceeds by a double-digit percentage what was registered in the same period of 2019.

The result is remarkable, he said, if one takes into account that it is coming from a collapse in 2020 of 47%, which, however, was less than the global impact of the pandemic in countries that reported falls of up to 80% or superior in attracting travelers.

And although in 2020 the industry without a fireplace suffered a serious impact, this was not reflected in the growth of the hotel infrastructure, which grew 2.4% in the number of hotels and 6.8% in rooms.

Aguilar Becerril anticipated that with this panorama and under the condition that the entity remains in the green color of the epidemiological traffic light, at the end of this 2021 it will be possible to attract 10 million travelers and by 2022, even the pre-pandemic levels could be exceeded.

According to the report How are we going ?, prepared by Sedetur, at the end of 2019, Quintana Roo captured 14.9 million travelers, of which 12.6 million were travelers who arrived by air to Quintana Roo, and of those, 7.8 million were international travelers .

The most up-to-date report of the agency, as of July 2021, establishes that a total of 6 million travelers have visited the entity by air alone.

Shared time

Despite the appearance of the new omicron variant of Covid-19, the tourism and vacation ownership industries are optimistic about the upturn of up to 12%, compared to 2019, which is being reached in some of the main destinations at the level national, highlighting the Mexican Caribbean, which expects to close with more than 10 million tourists in 2021 and sees “a very good 2022 on the horizon.”

“We are recovering the 2019 figures and in many cases exceeding them. The tourism industry and vacation ownership have had an important rebound with many new players and with important investments, ”said Gerardo Rioseco, president of the Mexican Association of Tourism Developers, in the framework of the press conference prior to the inauguration of Gnex -Acotur Conference 2021.

The business leader of the group that brings together more than 600 developers in Mexico, highlighted that “in 2021 we are closing between 10 to 12% above 2019 in some destinations such as Cancun, Riviera Maya and Los Cabos, while in Acapulco and Vallarta previous levels are recovering ”.
