Service to/from Cozumel, Mexico?

Tue Jul 09, 2019 4:56 pm

Last weekend I was in Cozumel, MX via a cruise on Royal Caribbean's Majesty of The Sea; it was the first time for me in Cozumel and I really liked the place for a variety of reasons. Upon checking flights in and out of Cozumel on FlightAware I was surprised that the airport is served only by American, United, Volaris, Sun Country and Interjet with only about 7 flights a day between those airlines. Just curious as to why other airlines like B6, Delta and NK do not fly to Cozumel.

CUN
Interesting how every thread is spammed with "bring back paid membership, there are too many spammers"

The same thing can be seen at Savannah airport and Hilton head airport in GA. Most flights leave from Savannah but a select few leave from Hilton Head for those willing to pay the upcharge. Hilton head island is easily drivable from Savannah, just like Cozumel is from CUN

Cozumel is on an island in the Caribbean, so it's definitely not drivable from CUN. There are some ferries. Cozumel appeals more to dive enthusiasts, and less to people who just want to sit on the beach and drink type vacation.

You can take your car on the ferry, but you are right, I made it sound a lot easier than it is. Still, when I looked at vacations online, one of the packages being sold was "Cozumel via CUN"

Flew into CZM numerous times back in the early 2000s on a variety of cheap charter package flights out of DFW - ATA with their L1011s, Sun Country DC-10, Champion Air 727s...dive trips. Those were the days.
