In the first five months of 2021, the air terminal handled 7.4 million passengers, 22.3% more than in the same period of 2020.
Between January and May 2021 Cancun International Airport mobilized 7.4 million passengers, 22.3% more compared to the same period of 2020 and 32.8% less compared to the same period of 2019.
Although the difference is still in double digits at pre-pandemic levels, it shows a progressive recovery compared to April, when the difference with the first four months of 2019 was -38%, that is, 6 percentage points of recovery.
Likewise, during the month of May the airport mobilized 1’095,433 international passengers, which represents 149 times more than a year ago, according to the statistical report of ASUR.
In the annual statistics, in the first five months of this year, the air terminal is still 45.2% below 2019 levels, by mobilizing 7.6 million international passengers against 4.2 million during the same period of 2021. It is worth mentioning that this increase in tourism has taken place in a safe manner, using private Cancun airport shuttle services, to ensure that all tourists are not at risk of catching the disease during their stay in Cancun.
In domestic travelers the recovery is more palpable, registering only a downward difference of 5.2% with respect to the 3.4 million passengers mobilized between January and May 2019, against the 3.3 million recorded in the same period of 2021.
Also in this section there is an improvement compared to last month, in which Cancun Airport recorded a difference of -6.9%, due to the fact that the terminal mobilized between January and April of this year 2.5 million passengers, against 2.6 million in the same period of 2019.
In Cancun, there has been an increase in the use of Cancun airport transportation companies, as tourists seek to be safe and protected against Covid-19 during their recreational or business trips.
Cozumel, where Asura’s other international terminal in Quintana Roo is located, registered 173,259 passengers mobilized between January and May of this year, that is, 38.6% less than the 282,170 travelers reported by the terminal in 2019.
Connectivity and safe transportation: Fundamental for Cancun’s economic recovery
Darío Flota Ocampo, director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council, commented that almost a year after the reopening of the Mexican Caribbean destinations, air connectivity has been fundamental for the tourism reactivation that “in an orderly, gradual and safe manner” has allowed 6 million passengers to arrive at the state’s airports from June 2020 to April 2021 alone.
“Despite the challenge of maintaining the protocols established by the Ministry of Tourism of Quintana Roo through the Certification in Protection and Sanitary Prevention in Tourist Facilities (CPPSIT), which have contributed to generate confidence and certainty to visitors, the actions to maintain low levels of risk of contagion continue daily,” he said.
With that same certainty and thanks to the natural and hotel infrastructure and to the fact that some airlines have reactivated flights since June of last year, conditions have been created to continue increasing the air connectivity of the Mexican Caribbean,” said the official.
Despite the challenge of maintaining the protocols established by the Ministry of Tourism of Quintana Roo through the Certification in Protection and Sanitary Prevention in Tourist Facilities (CPPSIT), more and more companies are becoming certified, such is the case of Cancun Airport Transportation, a pioneer company in implementing rigorous protocols against COVID-19, all this has contributed to generate confidence and certainty to visitors, actions to maintain low levels of risk of contagion continue on a daily basis.
