This new air route, which will be operational until the end of April 2025, will offer two flights a week, providing a new and direct travel option between Germany and Mexico. The flights, operated by an Airbus 330 with a capacity of between 240 and 300 passengers, promise to provide easy access to one of Mexico’s most popular destinations, known for its idyllic beaches and Mayan archaeological sites.


Impact and outlook

The arrival of Discover Airlines in Tulum symbolises an open door to countless opportunities. For Quintana Roo, it means a significant increase in tourism, with direct economic benefits for local employment and services. For European travellers, it means quicker, more direct and more comfortable access to an exotic and culturally rich destination.


A response to growing demand

Discover Airlines’ decision to launch this route is in response to growing demand for more direct and efficient connections to Mexico, avoiding stopovers in the United States or Mexico City. It also reflects the recognition of Tulum as a major attraction for travellers in search of nature, history and adventure.
