Bolstering its already impressive Latin America network, Delta Air Lines is adding service to Cancún from four U.S. cities. Starting in February, you will be able to fly non-stop to CUN on Delta from Columbus, San Antonio, Austin, and Tampa. The once weekly (Saturday) service will be seasonal and operated by MD-88s.

A quick look at the fares reveals that n/s flights are more expensive (over $200 more ex-AUS) than flying through Delta’s Atlanta hub.
As an aside, Delta is also launching service to Monrovia, Libera via Accra, Ghana. Hopefully the competition on the Accra route with United will push fares down.
