United Adds Service From Four U.S. Markets to Brand-New Airport
The airline is set to operate the new airport's longest route yet.
Following American’s recent announcement that it would add service to Tulum last week, United is hopping on the bandwagon. The Chicago-based airline is planning to start new service from three U.S. markets on March 31, 2024 before adding a seasonal route in May.
Located nearly 75 miles south of the larger Cancun International Airport, Tulum will be the region’s newest airport, which is slated to begin domestic operations in December. In addition to Aeromexico and Viva Aerobus, Spirit, Delta, and American have all announced service to the brand-new airport.
United’s New Tulum Routes
On Friday, United announced that it will offer 22 weekly nonstop flights to Tulum from Newark, Houston, and Chicago beginning on March 31, 2024. Both American and Delta are slated to begin their new routes to Tulum on March 28.
Tulum’s Longest Flight Yet
Along with its new routes to Newark, Houston, and Chicago, United is adding a seasonal flight between Tulum and Los Angeles. This route is scheduled to begin on May 23, 2024 and will be a daily service.
Tulum-Los Angeles will be the airport’s longest flight yet, just over 100 miles more than Viva Aerobus’ Tijuana route.
In Summer 2024, United says it will have up to five daily flights to the new airport. Flights on the carrier’s new services will be available on Nov. 18, 2023.
