Recent opinion polls show that eight out of 10 Mexicans have a negative opinion of Trump. This fact will have an impact on the US travel industry, as many will change their travel plans, especially for Easter holidays, as reported in El País.

Volaris, one of the main airlines serving Mexico and the United States, saw a major drop in passenger numbers in February. The company has just announced a reduction in total capacity of between 5% and 6% on all the destinations it serves. And in the case of US destinations, the Mexican airline has cut its growth forecasts by between 23% and 17%, despite the continued growth in US arrivals to Mexico.

Édgar Solís, president of the association of travel agencies in Mexico City, and Alberto Bojórquez, head of Viajes Bojórquez, say there has been a fall of between 10% and 15% in the number of trips taken by Mexicans to the United States in the last five months, coinciding with the period following Trump’s election victory.

In Mexico, the Mayan Riviera on the Caribbean, as well as Mexico City, are positioning themselves to take advantage of resentment toward the United States.

As reported in El País.
