United Airlines is increasing its flights to the Mexican Caribbean tourism hub of Cancun, Caribbean Journal has learned.
Beginning in October, United will be either resuming or increasing service to Cancun from hubs in Chicago, Denver, Houston, Newark and Washington, DC, the carrier announced this week.
United will also be relaunching flights from those hubs to Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s Pacific coast.
It’s part of a gradual increase of the carrier’s network capacity, which will stand at about 40 percent of its full schedule in October.
We continue to be data-driven and realistic in our approach to rebuilding our network,” said Ankit Gupta, United’s vice president of Domestic Network Planning. “Because October is typically a slower month for leisure travel, we’re adjusting our schedules to reflect these seasonal changes in customer demand while resuming service or adding capacity on routes where we’re seeing increased customer demand for travel.”
Mexico has been open for tourism since earlier this summer.
