Delta Air Lines has this week announced plans to offer a non-stop service between its mega hub in Atlanta to Tulum, Mexico.
It is understood that this is down to the brand new Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport opening up at that time too.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Delta To Offer Non-Stop Atlanta to Tulum Route in March 2024…
According to Delta, the non-stop service between Atlanta and Tulum will begin on March 28, 2024, using their Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
The service itself will be a year-round one, and is also part of a series of routes that will be launched through a Joint Cooperation Agreement with Aeromexico.
Aeromexico will serve Tulum from Mexico City in December 2023, and will begin to lay the foundations for connectivity with its partner.
By the end of 2024, Delta expects to see an offering of more than 90 daily flights through this arrangement, with Atlanta-Tulum standing to benefit from this.
Commenting on this new route was Joe Esposito, the airline’s Senior VP of Network Planning:
“Delta is uniquely positioned to give customers convenient and direct access from the U.S. to Tulum, a premium leisure destination known for its boutique hotels, Mayan ruins and eco-friendly spirit”.
“We know Tulum-bound customers will enjoy the elevated experience Delta consistently offers – and now without a two-hour drive from Cancun – as we grow our footprint in Mexico and throughout the Yucatan region.”
All eyes will be on both airlines to see how this new joint agreement will work, as well as what level of success this new route in particular will have.
