Tourism sector, base for the economic recovery of Quintana Roo

Cancun, QR. In a balance at the end of the year, Governor Carlos Joaquín González considered that, in terms of economic recovery, Quintana Roo “is doing very well, mainly in the tourism sector, which is an essential activity that generates benefits for all.”

Currently, he said, there is a greater number of seats, more hotel occupancy, which represents more jobs and income for Quintana Roo residents.

However, he urged all tourism service providers to work coordinated in the care of travelers, to be charged fair prices for the services they hired, and that they are of quality.

“We cannot go back, if we relax the measures there are possibilities of returning to the yellow color of the traffic light, we do not want it and much less in this season in which the occupation is growing, the number of people that is arriving is greater and this it means success for our different destinations and families ”explained Carlos Joaquín.

The state government anticipates the arrival of 1.3 million tourists during the end of the year season. It is also estimated that at the end of the year around 12.5 million travelers have been captured throughout the state, which would still be around 15% below the 2019 numbers, that is, before the pandemic.

In addition to this, the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council (CPTQ) has announced that between November of this year and March 2022 there are availability of 37,000 flights and 13.4 million seats to the Cancun International Airport.

These figures represent 10% more flights and 21% more in airplane seats compared to November 2019 to March 2020.

Connectivity covers 29 countries and 113 cities in Europe, the United States, Central and South America, that is, 3% more destinations compared to the pre-ndemic levels.

Added to this are new flights to cities such as Lisbon, Barcelona, ​​Warsaw, Vienna, Sao Paolo and Holguín, which prior to the health crisis had no direct connection with the Mexican Caribbean, said Benjamin Jiménez, director of Strategic Planning at CPTQ.

He explained that the double-digit increase in the availability of airplane seats is due to the fact that the airlines are programming their largest aircraft to the Mexican Caribbean, that is, while before the pandemic the most common that landed in Cancun were the Boeing 737 with a maximum capacity of 197 passengers, and Dreamliner models with up to 300 seats are currently landing.

Economic package

Meanwhile, the local congress approved the 2022 Economic Package for an amount of 34,611 million 211,821 pesos, an amount just slightly higher than in 2021, of 33,860 million 864,890 pesos, that is, 750 million will be exercised, 346,931 pesos more than this year.

It is estimated that at the end of the year around 12.5 million travelers will be captured throughout the state, which would still be around 15% below the 2019 numbers, that is, before the pandemic.
