United Airlines to Resume Houston-Mérida Route in May
State of Yucatán continues recovery of air connectivity with the U.S.
United Airlines debuted this route on Dec. 1, flying a 166-seat aircraft from Houston to Mérida International Airport (MID) four times per week. At the end of 2020, there were 2,490 available airplane seats.
United Airlines also has joined the Good Health Practices of Yucatán certification program, which creates "sanitary bubbles" where service providers in the state can offer both visitors and locals a biosafe experience while they visit the destination's tourist attractions.
The state of Yucatán has entered the "Yellow Phase" of Mexico's recovery plan, which allows for decreased restrictions on nighttime mobility on specific days, extending the hours of operation for restaurants, reactivating social events with their respective protocols, and increasing capacity limits for businesses, commercial plazas, supermarkets, hotels and restaurants.
These actions are part of the Yucatán Economic Reactivation Plan, which to date has helped the state recover international connectivity by 75%, while the national connectivity rate in Mexico, by comparison, now exceeds 61% of pre-pandemic levels.
Yucatán offers visitors transformative experiences across a land rich in history. Home to a thriving Maya community, culture and gastronomy rooted in the colonial era, and some of Mexico's finest architecture, the state is a must for anyone looking to emerge themselves in Mexican culture. Yucatán's capital, Mérida, offers a unique duality of both ancient Mayan culture and modern facilities. A popular destination in Mexico, Mérida makes an excellent home base for visiting the rest of the state and its remote micro-destinations, where social distancing is a way of life rather than a concerted effort.
