This confirms the high number of Mexicans arriving in our country this year, with a total recovery of pre-pandemic sales and even a 21 per cent increase in flights.
“This year we sold more trips to Argentina than in 2019, that is, before the pandemic”. This message from the Mexican tourism industry was one of the most positive news for the members of the National Institute for Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR) during their participation in the Virtuoso on Tour in Mexico City yesterday.
There were 60 meetings with more than 90 travel agents, who stressed Argentina’s tourism recovery and highlighted the country’s natural beauty and economic accessibility, among other aspects.
These good results are in addition to the excellent number of arrivals of Mexicans to our country from 1 January to 7 November this year, around 47,000 arrivals. On top of that, there has been a growth of 2 per cent in all means of transport.
“When we did Buy Argentina this year in Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara we noticed a great interest in our country on the part of the Mexican and North American tourism sector. And now, with this Virtuoso network meeting, we confirm that sales are going very well and that encourages us to follow in this direction,” said INPROTUR’s Executive Secretary, Ricardo Sosa.
