“In this Mérida International Airport, we not only opened a route that connects us with the Bajío, but we also talked about a growth of 14.6 percent, above the global average seen in other airport terminals. Next year we will have two more new flights to Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico, and Toronto, Canada; a symptom of the growth potential that Yucatán has. ” said the director of Aeropuertos Regionales del Sur (ASUR), Héctor Navarrete Muñoz.
