We’re finally seeing the return of a popular Mexican vacation destination to two of Delta’s hubs.

From November 5, 2023, Delta will resume service to Cozumel (CZM) from its base in Atlanta, and then on December 16, 2023, from Minneapolis. 

Here are the details.

Fly to Cozumel From Atlanta and Minneapolis

Delta is padding out its winter vacation route network to Mexico.

Cozumel will join Cancún (CUN), Guadalajara (GDL), Mexico City (MEX), Monterrey (MTY), Puerto Vallarta (PVR), and San José del Cabo (SJD) as the seventh Mexican destination with nonstop Delta service from Atlanta.

When the service returns, it will be the only nonstop route between Atlanta and the stunning vacation island of Cozumel.

The daily service will operate with the following schedule:

  • Depart Atlanta (ATL) 11:10 a.m. — Arrive Cozumel (CZM) 2 p.m. 
  • Depart Cozumel (CZM) 3:25 p.m. — Arrive Atlanta (ATL) 5:55 p.m.

And with the return of Cozumel from Minneapolis, the airline will have a total of 5 Mexican destinations with nonstop service from the Twin Cities.

Delta will operate this route 3x weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays with the following schedule:

  • Depart Minneapolis (MSP) 10:05 a.m. — Arrive Cozumel (CZM) 3:10 p.m.
  • Depart Cozumel (CZM) 4:35 p.m. — Arrive Minneapolis (MSP) 7:40 p.m.

As the services depart from 2 of Delta’s largest hubs, travelers from across the U.S. and Canada will be able to connect onto the new Cozumel services with easy, one-stop itineraries.

Both routes will be operated by Delta’s fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft. These narrow-body jets feature 16 seats in first class (2-2 configuration), 18 seats in Delta Comfort Plus (3-3 configuration), and 123 seats in Main Cabin, which are in the standard economy 3-3 configuration.

How to Book

The cheapest round-trip fares we’re seeing start at around $645 from Minneapolis and $725 from Atlanta.

You can save yourself a chunk of dollars by flying from both destinations on American via Miami or Dallas, but with that, the journey time increases significantly.

Alternatively, you could always use Delta SkyMiles instead and save your cash for while you’re on vacation.

Hot Tip: If you need to use cold hard cash for a flight booking if using points isn’t an option, we recommending using one of these travel credit cards that reward you in points and other perks.

Final Thoughts

Vamos a Cozumel!

It’s exciting to see Delta returning to more previously-served destinations after time away due to the pandemic.

We’ll see you there for tacos and tequila.
