Dublin Airport has got a direct service to Mexico

A direct flight service from Dublin to Cancun in Mexico has been announced.

The flights will begin on Monday, June 13, and will be operated by Falcon Holidays and Thompson on a weekly basis for six weeks.

The Mexican Tourism Board has reported that in 2015 the number of Irish tourists travelling to Mexico was more than 24,000, 10.6% more than the previous year.

They said that in per capita terms, Ireland is one of the European countries that sends more tourists to Mexico, even more than Germany, Holland or Italy.

They predict that the flow of tourists from Ireland to Mexico will remain high, because of "the impressive recovery of the Irish economy", along with the optimistic outlook for 2016 in both countries.
