TUI has announced that it will operate its charter flights to Los Cabos, Mexico, this season, making it the only airline to offer direct flights between the UK and Los Cabos. Starting in November, the direct flights will operate twice weekly out of London Gatwick

In addition, TUI will offer vacation packages to the destination’s two main resort areas, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Travelers will be able to choose from hotels including the new, 639-room, all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos, as well as TUI’s sister all-inclusives, the Riu Palace Baja California and the Riu Hotel Santa Fe, both of which are on Medano Beach. The company will offer seven-, 10-, 11- and 14-night vacation packages. 

In addition to the upcoming direct flights to Los Cabos, TUI will also launch summer 2020 vacations to the destination starting in early November. The company said that the long lead time will allow vacationers to secure their preferred flight options and favorite hotels well in advance.

The move is the latest addition to Los Cabos’ airlift. Toward the end of last year the destination added new flights from Las Vegas, which is among its top source markets, as well as from both Chicago Midway and Chicago O’Hare. The Los Cabos Tourism Board is also continuing to step up promotion efforts in North America following the closure of the national Mexico Tourism Board, most recently opening a new office in Los Angeles
