Cancun, in south-east Mexico, is on the Caribbean coast. Gateway to the "Mundo Maya", its hotel infrastructure and natural resources make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in Latin America and is also a rapidly-developing international conference centre.
This new route comes in addition to the 17 weekly flights operated by Air France and Aeromexico, member of SkyTeam, between Paris and Mexico(*): 10 flights operated by Air France and 7 flights operated by Aeromexico. KLM also operates 7 weekly frequencies from Amsterdam to Mexico.
“The launch of flights to Cancun illustrates Air France-KLM’s desire to continue its development strategy in Mexico and Latin America by offering customers close to 30 weekly flights from Paris or Amsterdam to Mexico” declared Patrick Roux, SVP Air France-KLM for the Americas.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
