To this aim, they have signed an alliance agreement with Mexicana, one of Mexico's largest airlines.

Mayair will start flying the Cozumel-Cancun route this October, with 33 passenger aircraft at a price of 400 pesos ($38) per person, each way.

They are also planning a route that will connect Cozumel directly with the famous Mayan archaeological site of Chichen Itza with a flight time of 38 minutes.

Valenzuela said more new flights should also begin this year from Cancun to Belize City, Merida, Chetumal, Campeche, Palenque and Tikal in Guatemala.
