Beginning this summer, you can get to the Yucatán Peninsula easier than ever. On April 9, United Airlines announced it's adding a new nonstop flight from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to Cancun International Airport in June.

According to a release, the airline will begin seasonal nonstop service between the two cities beginning June 8 but did not disclose when the summer flights will end.

United's newest nonstop takes off from ABIA on Saturday and Sunday at 7:47 am, landing in CUN at 10:20 am. Return flights also leave the Mexican resort town on Saturday and Sunday at 11:20 am, landing back in the Capital City at 2:05 pm.

The Austin to Cancun route is just part of United's massive, multi-city expansion of nonstop service across the U.S.

"Today we are offering our customers more destinations than ever before, both here in the United States and overseas," said Patrick Quayle, United's vice president of International Network in a release. 

Along with Austin, San Antonio also received nonstop service to Cancun, while Houston landed direct flights to St. Thomas and Turks and Caicos.

As of press time, fares for United's newest nonstop were priced at $464 and up for a week-long vacation.
