Hurricane Warning: Cancún Airport Restrictions & Safety Measures

Cancún International Airport has released a statement regarding potential flight cancellations this week due to the anticipated arrival of Hurricane Beryl in the Mexican Caribbean. The airport is urging passengers to only arrive at the terminals if they have a confirmed flight. The airport facilities are not certified to act as a shelter during such weather events and cannot be used as such.

Passengers requiring specific information about their flights are advised to contact the local numbers or their respective airline. Those without a confirmed flight are asked to avoid the airport terminals to prevent crowding and ensure the safety of all users.

The airport has been operating an Early Warning Group for hydrometeorological events since March, as part of its Emergency Plan approved by the aviation authority. This group comprises the Federal Civil Aviation Agency (AFAC), Services for Navigation in Mexican Airspace (SENEAM), and Southeast Airports (ASUR). Together with authorities, airlines, and other service providers, they form the airport's Emergency Operating Committee.

With Hurricane Beryl approaching, the airport has put necessary protocols and procedures in place to ensure the safety of air operations and users. Presently, due to the development and predicted path of the hurricane, the airport is in "Alert 01, Uncertainty Phase". This corresponds with the Green Alert – Approach Phase of the National Civil Protection System, indicating moderate danger.
