Tulum International receives first Canadian flight with Air Canada arriving from Toronto

Tulum, QR – Tulum International Airport received its first Canadian flight on Friday with the landing of Air Canada. The Canadian airline made its first landing at the Mexican airport from Toronto around 2:30 p.m. Tulum time.

Governor Mara Lezama was at the airport for the Air Canada landing. She says the first landing is an important event for Quintana Roo’s tourism and economy, as she leads the ceremony for the inaugural flight.

This new direct service marks an important milestone in the state’s international connectivity and reinforces Quintana Roo’s commitment to international tourism, she said.

“This connectivity will allow visitors to enjoy the rural population, learn about our cultural, historical, gastronomic and artisanal wealth and represents a new alternative to experience, to live the new era of the Mexican Caribbean,” she added in a statement on Friday.

“We invite all travelers from Toronto and Canada to discover Tulum and the many treasures our state has to offer,” Lezama said from the airport on Friday.
