United announced today that it will offer non-stop flights between the United States and the soon-to-open Tulum International Airport (TQO) in Mexico with 22 weekly flights from Newark/New York, Houston and Chicago beginning March 31, 2024.
On May 23, United will add daily seasonal service from Los Angeles, resulting in up to five daily flights from United’s hubs to Tulum this upcoming summer*. Flights will be available for sale beginning November 18.
Mexico continues to be a leading leisure destination and Tulum has quickly emerged as one of Mexico’s most popular destinations for American travelers.
Located approximately 90 miles south of Cancun, the new Tulum International Airport will give United customers more direct access to the city and more opportunities to travel to the ever-popular Riviera Maya region, complementing United’s existing services to Cancun and Cozumel.
“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,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s senior vice president of Network Planning and Alliances.
“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.”
