Yay! Good news for those booking our Nomoon Mexico tours: nonstop flights from destinations across the United States are about to get a whole lot cheaper!
It’s a result of eliminating most restrictions on flights between U.S. and Mexico. This move probably encouraged Southwest and Delta to offer new flights to Mexico over the next few months.
A few things to note:
- Starting on December 4, 2016, Southwest Airlines Co. plans to launch new nonstop service between Los Angeles International Airport and three airports in Mexico’s coastal resort regions of Cancun, San Jose del Cabo/Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta. See their new service schedule here.
- Delta announced last week that on December 17, 2016 it will start nonstop flights between JFK Airport and Cancun and between LAX to Los Cabos.
American and United (among others) are expected to do the same.
Changes to these flights actually began in December 2015 when the U.S. and Mexico opened their markets to each other’s carriers. Before all of this, it was generally limited to two or three airlines from each country to specific routes. Now, under the new system, both countries will be able to fly whatever routes they want, as often as they want.
The airlines are able to set their own prices – which most likely lead to lower cost airfares. I am hoping that the price of these tickets will be cut in half for all of us. 😀
We’ll follow up with news of other new flights to our destinations as it trickles in! In the meantime, check out our Mexico tour packages and get on with the booking!
