Getting There From Here


Mexico is a gateway to the world, welcoming millions of travelers from around the globe to its state-of-the-art airports. It currently ranks as one of the top 10 most visited countries, with 113,600 flights between Mexico and the US alone via 63 international airports. There is excellent connectivity within the country as well, with a network of domestic airlines and airports and more than 95,000 miles (152,888 km) of modern highways and roads.

Boost in demand for travel to Mexico continues to grow at a record pace, with airlines around the world adding new routes, additional flights on existing routes and upgrading to the latest aircraft models with larger capacities in order to meet the impressive demand for travel to this country. As of January, airline partners announced the addition of more than 1,000,000 new seats scheduled in 2017 on international direct flights to Mexico from more than 20 countries.

“This expansion includes service to Mexico from many new international cities to multiple Mexico destinations, which is part of our strategy of international market diversification. We are delighted to see our airline industry partners continue to recognize this momentum and further expand their connectivity,” remarked Lourdes Berho, CEO of the Mexico Tourism Board. She added, “While the 2016 Mexico tourism numbers are still being finalized, it’s clear that we will have another record-setting year of industry-leading growth in terms of international visitors to Mexico.”

Coupled with Mexico’s proximity to the US, this extraordinary level of connectivity translates into lower travel costs for planners and attendees, not to mention fewer time zone changes. Plus, an extensive transportation infrastructure is vital for the speedy and reliable delivery of exhibition materials, often over great distances. And by continuing to invest in and improve upon connectivity, Mexico strengthens these benefits, reducing time spent in transit, increasing frequencies, cutting down waiting times and improving the overall quality of the travel experience.

Because of strict security standards, when flying into Mexico we recommend arriving to the airport at least three hours before your flight. Reconfirm your reservations, as overbooking is not uncommon, particularly on direct flights to major destinations such as Mexico City, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta.
