There is a free shuttle between all three terminals.

Currently, the only airlines operating direct flights from the UK are British Airways and TUI Airways, both from London Gatwick.

The airport is open 24/7.

Cancun Airport Transit

Weekends are very busy at the airport, thus give yourself enough time between flights. Weekdays are not as bad but if you are flying in during peak hours (10:00 to 16:00) then you may run into some long lines at the immigration and customs booths. When connecting onto a domestic flight, you will have to clear immigration first before boarding your next flight.
