American Adds New Tulum Airport to Route Map
The Fort Worth-based airline joins Spirit and Delta as U.S. carriers serving the new airport.
American is jumping on the bandwagon of airlines adding service to Mexico’s newest airport. On Friday, the Fort Worth-based carrier announced that it will add four daily flights between three of its U.S. hubs and Tulum’s brand-new airport.
Coinciding with the airport’s early 2024 scheduled full opening, American will add new flights starting on March 28, 2024. Flights will be operating year-round, according to the airline. The new route from American’s Dallas/Fort Worth hub will be twice daily in addition to one daily service from Charlotte and Miami.
All of the airline’s new flights to Tulum will be operated by 737-800 aircraft. Just 80 miles north, American regularly serves nearby Cancun with up to 40 peak-day departures.
A Trio to Tulum
Last month, Delta announced that it is adding daily flights to the brand-new airport from its Atlanta hub. Ultra-low-cost carrier Spirit is also adding daily service from Fort Lauderdale and Orlando starting in March. American becomes the third U.S. airline to announce plans to serve Tulum.
Mexican airlines are already gearing up to serve the airport as early as Dec. 1, 2023. According to The Points Guy, Aeromexico and VivaAerobus have begun selling tickets. VivaAerobus will operate the first flight into Tulum from Mexico City’s newer Felipe Ángeles International Airport. Aeromexico will also operate a flight to its main hub in Mexico City.
While the new airport was slated for an early 2024 opening, Mexico’s president announced in April that the project will be completed ahead of schedule, per Cancun Sun.
