Tulum, renowned for its picturesque landscapes and Mayan heritage, has recently emerged as a beacon of luxury and opportunity with the inauguration of the “Felipe Carrillo Puerto” International Airport. In a recent statement, Jorge Molina Pérez, the General Director of Tourism and Economy of Tulum, highlighted the immense potential this new airport, often dubbed the “airport of the jungle,” holds for the region's growth, especially in the luxury sector and private aviation.
One of the key features of the airport contributing to this surge in potential is its Fixed Based Operator (FBO) terminal. FBO, as explained by Pérez, comprises a private air terminal for passenger embarkation and disembarkation, along with a range of aeronautical services such as aircraft hangarage, handling, and flight operations. The Tulum FBO terminal not only caters to the needs of private flights but also offers an extensive list of services, including apron parking for various aircraft categories, dispatch services, weather reports, personalized assistance, and concierge services, among others.
