Cancun Tourism on the Rise

Cancun is not back to where it was in previous years in terms of tourism, in part due to travel restrictions, in part due to self-imposed capacity limits at hotels and resorts, and in part due to a hesitation by many would-be travelers to getting on a plane. But there has been enough continued increase in passengers since the resort re-opened last month to cause Cancun International Airport to reopen Terminal 2 starting on July 14th. Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (Southeast Airport Group), which manages the airport, says that all airlines currently flying into Cancun International will continue to use Terminal 4. But two of Mexico’s domestic airlines, Viva Aerobús and Volaris, will be moved from Terminal 4 to Terminal 2 to help alleviate the number of passengers in one terminal. The reopening of the terminal will include the application of screening questionnaires and temperature-taking at departures and arrivals.
