The addition of nonstop flights to Tulum grows the carrier’s international service at FLL to 26 destinations and MCO to 11 destinations. Florida serves as a gateway to the carrier’s flights to Latin America and the Caribbean, and the new TQO service adds a one-stop option to Guests traveling from 53 cities across the U.S.

Tulum Airport also known as Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport (TQO) is currently under construction and is approximately 65% complete as of September 26th, 2023.

Tulum Airport is a state of the art international airport that is expected to receive more than 5 million passengers and employ more than 15,000 people in the region — yet another big win for the state of Quintana Roo, México.
