At least 130,000 passengers will pass through the airport in Mérida in December, reports the Aeropuertos del Sureste (ASUR). That’s a 30 percent rise in business over 2014.
One reason: the new Toronto-Mérida route begins this month, further increasing activity at the facility, formally known as the Manuel Crescencio Rejón International Airport.
According to ASUR, on a normal day up to 112 flights come and go daily in Mérida. Christmas and the high season will bring that number higher.
For Yucatecans, favorite destinations are Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Tabasco and Veracruz domestically; despite available flights to Europe and South American, Miami and Houston in the United States are the international destinations favored this time of year.
