Getting around by air

More than 30 Mexican airports receive direct flights from the USA (some from several US cities, some from just a couple), and some of them also have direct flights from Canada. Mexico City, Cancún, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Puerto Vallarta are Mexico’s busiest international airports. Only Mexico City and Cancún receive direct scheduled flights from European, Caribbean and Central and South American countries, with Cancún offering the most options from Europe.

Mexico’s flag airline is Aeroméxico (www.aeromexico.com); its safety record is comparable to major US and European airlines.

Low-cost airlines providing international flights to Mexico include the USA’s Frontier Airlines (www.flyfrontier.com), Southwest Airlines (www.southwest.com), Spirit (www.spirit.com) and Sun Country Airlines (www.suncountry.com), Canada’s Sunwing Airlines (www.flysunwing.com) and WestJet (www.westjet.com), and Mexico’s Interjet (www.interjet.com.mx) and Volaris (www.volaris.com). The two Mexican airlines fly to several US cities. Interjet also flies to Havana and Varadero in Cuba, Guatemala City and San Jose, Costa Rica.

Departure Tax

The airport departure tax Tarifa de Uso de Aeropuerto (TUA) is almost always included in your ticket cost, but if it isn’t, you must pay in cash during airport check-in. It varies from airport to airport and costs approximately US$25 for international flights and a little less for domestic flights. This tax is separate from the fee for your tourist permit, which is always included in airfares.
