THE resumption of a non-stop route next year will give Irish holidaymakers looking to book a trip to Mexico a big boost.
Dublin to Cancun non-stop flight will be available for booking options again soon.
The flight route will officially resume for June and July 2023 – and it is currently unclear if it will resume after the end of July.
The flight is operated by TUI Holiday Group and takes place in a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Prices for the trip start at €1,799 per person with a €150 deposit.
Price based on first departure on June 5, 2023 for 14 nights at RUI Lupita three star hotel with all inclusive package.
In announcing the route’s return, Dublin Airport said: “Dust off those sombreros! TUIGroup has announced that it will resume direct non-stop service from Dublin Airport to Cancun from June 2023. Excellent!“
Meanwhile, another major change could see Irish holidaymakers traveling without face masks from next week.
The European Union Agency for Aviation Safety and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control have said face masks will no longer be mandatory at airports and on flights in Europe.
The move is a recommendation, but it is now up to individual governments and airlines to decide whether to change their OWN rules and recommendations.

That means individual airlines could still require masks to be worn on flights.
The rule change applies to travel within Europe and will come into effect on May 16.
European health officials urged passengers to continue wearing a mask if they had cold symptoms and said they should also follow the recommendations of each airline they travel with.
However, all holidaymakers looking to book flights have been warned to first make sure their passports are up to date.
They are being asked not to book any flights until they receive their renewed passports.
This is due to a large backlog at the passport office as people across the island scramble to get their renewals ahead of the summer holidays.
