Denver (DEN) is the latest city to be scheduled to have a nonstop connection to Tulum (TQO) — Mexico’s newest airport.

The route will be inaugurated on December 19, 2024, as first discovered by Ishrion Aviation on X.

Here are the details of United’s planned new route between Denver and Tulum.

Fly Nonstop From Denver to Tulum on United

Tulum’s new Felipe Carrillo Puerto International Airport is spiking the interest of North American carriers as they waste no time in announcing new nonstop services.

Chicago-based United Airlines is the latest carrier to announce a new service to the recently-opened airport with plans to start a nonstop connection from Denver in December.

At the time of writing, it’s too far in advance to book tickets on United’s Denver to Tulum service. However, when searching for the route on FlightConnections, it shows the service will operate on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

The schedule, which is subject to change, is scheduled as follows:

  • Depart Denver (DEN) 9:45 a.m. — Arrive Tulum (TQO) 3:43 p.m.
  • Depart Tulum (TQO) 4:50 p.m. — Arrive Denver (DEN) 7:10 p.m.

When it launches, Denver will become United’s 5th hub to boast nonstop service to Tulum joining Chicago (ORD), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), and Newark (EWR) which are all scheduled to take wing between March and May 2024.

“Our new direct flights help people get there faster than ever, giving them even more time to enjoy one of Mexico’s most unique destinations,” said Patrick Quayle, senior vice president of network planning and alliances at United.

Flights will be operated by the airline’s fleet of Boeing 737-900 aircraft.

We would expect United will announce even more nonstop services to Tulum’s new airport as it evaluates the success of its currently scheduled routes.

Hot Tip:

If you’re a United frequent flyer, and you haven’t done so already, then we recommend considering one of the 7 credit cards that come with specific United Airlines benefits. For example, the United Club℠ Infinite Card offers 4x bonus miles on United flights when paying with the card!

Final Thoughts

Thanks to Tulum’s new airport, getting to some of the best resorts on the Mexican Caribbean coastline will be a whole lot quicker — especially for those with nonstop services like United’s newly announced route from Denver.

We’ll keep you updated as airlines continue to add new routes to Mexico’s hottest new airport.
