Merida’s Manuel Crescendo Rejon international airport is reporting record demand for the holiday season.

The airport forecast 200,000 passengers in July and August, and reached half that amount halfway through the period, indicating a busy summer.

Also during the season, 105 daily flights were recorded, five more than normal.

Outgoing flights mainly head to Mexico City, followed by Guadalajara, Villahermosa, Cancún, Monterrey, and internationally Houston, Miami and Havana.

“It’s a very good summer, we had the best July that had the airport and we’re having a good August with more than 20 non-scheduled flights, which gives a significant flow of passengers, especially this weekend, when the holidays end for young people,” said Hector Navarrete Muñoz, director of the airport.
