OAKLAND, Calif. - Dec. 4, 2020 - PRLog -- 2020, being an unprecedented year in terms of the global crisis caused by Covid-19 that seriously affected tourism and consequently airlines, the state of Yucatan Ministry of Tourism, in adherence to the policies of the Economic Reactivation Program, kept in constant communication with the different airlines that serve Yucatán, enrolling them to participate in the Good Health Practices Certification of Yucatán and of the different health care measures that were implemented; always prioritizing the health of the Yucatecan population. From this reactivation, the Yucatan Ministry of Tourism worked closely with the airlines to recover in a gradual and orderly manner, given the needs of each destination, reactivating the different routes that connect the state.

Volaris announced that 2021 will start with the arrival of a new international route, coming from Oakland, on January 18 an A320 type aircraft with 174 available seats will touch Mayan lands every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Ticket sales are now available on the airline's portal.

The airline is operating six national routes to Yucatán with very good results, and the route from Oakland will be added, with which the airline will have its first international route to Mérida, which will serve to unite the entire community of Yucatecans living in the Bay Area and thus one more of the commitments agreed with Sefotur is fulfilled, said Miguel Aguíñiga, Director of Market Development at Volaris.

With this new route, Yucatán adds a total of five international routes, Miami, Houston, and Havana operating before the end of the year, while Toronto remains on hold for 2021.

In this regard, Michelle Fridman, Ministry of Tourism of Yucatan, assured that this new route complements the connectivity with the United States in three points, to the East with Miami, Downtown through Houston and the West Coast with Oakland, this last point being an important anchor for visitors from San Francisco, San José California and Sacramento.

After the full closure of tourist activities in Yucatan, the recovery of air connectivity has improved significantly, of the total of 13 domestic routes that operated until February 2020, by December, nine of these have been recovered, which is equivalent to 69.2 percent of the routes or 17,451 seats.
