Did you know that Fly Cozumel offers Flights from Cancun to Cozumel every day of the year, 24 hours a day? Getting to Cozumel from Cancun has never been so easy with the Flights we offer: fly private, skip airport lines and fly immediately after you arrive in Cancun.
The Cancun International Airport is one of the busiest airports in all Latin America. Cancun is the starting point for numerous adventures by air, land, and sea throughout the Yucatan Peninsula and the Mexican Caribbean. Departing from Cancun, no destination is more than approximately one hour away.
Reading on social media, people often express concern about the process of getting to the island of Cozumel from Cancun, asking questions about the process and difficulty of it. Many people fly direct to Cancun during low season because several airline companies stop direct Flights to the island during this time, or they charge higher prices to get you here direct – with fewer flight dates to choose from. Besides adding to your travel time and being inconvenient, this often leaves people with no choice but to fly to Cancun and then do what locals call, “The Bag Drag” over to the island. The bag drag is the (roughly) 3 hour process of hauling yourself and your luggage from the Cancun International Airport to Cozumel.
From Cancun to Cozumel by land
When getting out of your terminal in Cancun, first you run the gauntlet of sales people between you and a taxi, or the next available ADO bus headed to Playa del Carmen. Then, once your taxi or bus arrives in Playa del Carmen, you’ll disembark and “drag” your bags from your drop-off point on Avenida 5, through the beach-side park and down to the ferry pier. There, you’ll catch the next available ferry over to the island and once on the island, you grab a taxi and head to your final destination. The bag drag is no issue for those with ample patience and time but for others – traveling with children, the elderly, or frankly – anyone that just wants their travel day to be over as quickly as possible, so they can enjoy a relaxed dinner and watch the island sunset… Well, the bag drag just isn’t going to cut it for those people.
From Cancun to Cozumel by air
So you may arrive in Cancun airport while your final destination is Cozumel airport. Going by land and ferry is not for everybody, and later at night not even possible. The time table with cheap Flights to Cozumel (CZM) of Mayair might not work out for you. There must be something better, right? Flying private from Cancun to Cozumel island might be interesting for you.
Obviously, a flight from the Cancun airport directly over to the island would be ideal – but in some cases, this can also present difficulties. Mayair at this moment just offers just 2 scheduled Flights a day, one in the morning and one, later in the evening. It also does not offer Flights everyday of the week. Luggage and Pets could be a problem as well. So what happens if you want to fly in on the day no Flights to Cozumel are operating, or your flight into Cancun arrives around 1pm or 3pm, as many of them do? Well, you’ll either be stuck in Cancun an extra day, have no choice but do the bag drag, or get comfortable because you’ll be waiting an awfully long time for that next scheduled flight out to Cozumel. When you cannot fly direct, wouldn’t you prefer a better alternative? A way to skip the bus / taxi- ferry “bag drag” completely and grab a flight straight over to Cozumel – when YOU are ready to leave? FlyCozumel offers you an alternative!
With state-of-the-art Garmin technology and newer planes (Cessna 2016 & 2018), you can skip the bag drag all-together and leave Cancun according to your time schedule (not someone else’s), on a private flight to help you end your travel day on a more relaxing and personal note. You can’t get any more convenient than that! So how does it work?
How it really is? Flights from Cancun to Cozumel.
Once you’ve retrieved your luggage and cleared customs at the Cancun International Terminal, simply grab one of the free shuttles (they leave every 15 minutes) over to the General Aviation / FBO terminal and meet up with your Fly Cozumel pilot. Hate the security screening process? Relax, it’s smooth sailing from here. It’s just a quick walk through the sensor and luggage screen since it’s only you and your group, not hundreds of people all trying to get through at the same time. You may be ready to leave for Cozumel, before other travelers from your flight have even boarded the ADO bus to Playa del Carmen! Each guest is allowed 50lbs / 25 kilo of luggage and once your luggage is safely stowed away, you’ll be ready to queue on the tarmac, waiting your turn to leave Cancun and wing-away to the beautiful island that awaits you!
Regular commercial airlines with their altitudes and size, deny most passengers any sort of view but as Fly Cozumel offers 5-seat and 13-seat Cessna, which fly at much lower altitudes, your entire group will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery these Flights offer. Have your camera ready if this is a new experience for you, because the colors and birds-eye views these Flights offer are truly spectacular! Worried about comfort? Don’t be. These planes may be smaller than the commercial jet you arrived to Cancun in – but there’s plenty of leg and seat room for passengers. With air conditioning and each passenger having their own comfortable headset to keep the engine noise out, you’ll be able to settle in and relax to enjoy the last leg of your journey to Cozumel. One of the most important things to note, is the fact a flight from Cancun to Cozumel is a mere 20 minutes. So in no time at all you’ll be in your vacation home or hotel / resort, unpacking and ready to hit the town or beach!
Cozumel, the Island of Swallows and home base of Fly Cozumel, provides a magical escape to experience the charm, beauty, and hospitality of one of the Riviera Maya’s premier destinations. Cozumel is an especially great vacation spot for divers, nature lovers, and sports lovers.

The rich, deep blues will sooth your travel-weary mind and as you approach Cozumel, the stunning turquoise that surrounds the island will excite you with thoughts of your toes in the white sand and the warm sun on your skin. Once you’ve landed, there’s no waiting around for a hundred bags to be unloaded and and onto a luggage carousel. Instead, you’ll retrieve yours directly and simply walk out through the terminal to the entrance. From there, Fly Cozumel can direct you over to the main terminal entrance, just meters away, where you’ll be able to get a shuttle to your final, island destination.
