A new direct flight that connects
Moscow and Cancun has started to operate,making it easier than ever for
travelers from around the world to reach Mexico's sunny Riviera Maya region in
the Mexican Caribbean. The Mexican Ministry of Tourism reported recently that
the new flight was arranged as part of its current market diversification
program,which aims to boost international travel coming into the region over
the months and years ahead.
Russian airline Aeroflot will be
conducting the new flights,which will land at Cancun's International Airport
directly after leaving Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport. The airline is the third
new air transportation company to commence operations in Cancun
real estate over the last year,following in the footsteps of both
British Airways and Air France. The Mexican Caribbean is the first region in
Latin American to receive a direct flight from Russia. Previously,Aeroflot
only offered flights in the region to Havana and Punta Cana.
The new Cancun route will run every 10
days and can carry up to 338 passengers at a time using an Airbus 330,which
will provide a nice boost for tourism in the region. In fact,the Russian
market has become increasingly important for Mexico's tourism industry,which
has experienced a more than 40 percent increase in the number of Russian
visitors since January of 2011,as compared to the same period last year.
It is expected that the diversification
of connectivity that is provided by the new flights will also have a positive
impact on Cancun real estate throughout the region. As access increases,making
it easier than ever for travelers from around the world to reach Mexico's
Riviera Maya,it is only natural that the local Cancun real estate market will
experience a boost,attracting new investors and vacationers who are interested
in purchasing property in the region.
