American Are Traveling to Mexico at a Record Pace

The Covid-19 pandemic halted travel around the world in 2020. But as travel resumed, Mexico became one of the most accessible options for Americans. Border restrictions are still in place through August, but million gave been flying to the southern neighbor.

U.S. airlines are now set for a record summer traffic to Mexican destinations. In June, U.S. carriers transported more than 2.2 million passengers to Mexico. That sets the record for the busiest month ever, which was first set in March 2018. The June figure was a 24% jump when compared to June 2019. Between January and May of this year, Americans made up 81.7% of foreign tourists visiting Mexico.

U.S. airlines have been beneficiaries as well, with increased revenue especially for American Airlines and United Airlines.

“The demand was always going to start coming back for business and pleasure, and even for health reasons, such as through the famous vaccine tourism,” Montalvo told Mexico News Daily. “The ones who can meet the demand are the American lines, because they are able to do it.”

Montalvo also explained that low-budget carriers are seeing a quicker recovery both domestically and internationally. On the other hand, long-haul airlines and routes are showing difficulty fully recovering due to potential service, schedule and even luggage issues.

  1. More freedom than in the USA. We spent 3 months there this winter, and will go back for 3-5 months next winter.

    Mexico City is amazing, love spending time there.

    • Only annoying thing is that if you forget to put on your mask in a store, every employee will start yelling at you like a choir! Reminding people to comply politely seems like an alien thing to them.
