The Portuguese-based leisure airline Orbest -formerly known as Iberworld– offers package deals from Portugal to Mexico’s Caribbean resort of Cancun.
Orbest is currently owned by the Barceló Group, but was previously part of the Orizonia Corporation, which no longer exists. Nowadays, this company offers exclusively long-haul charter services.
Orbest unites the Humberto Delgado International Airport of Lisbon (LIS) -also known as the Portela Airport– and the Cancun International Airport (CUN), currently -Sept. 2019- with weekly frequencies on Sundays.

Orbest uses its fleet of Airbus A330-300 aircraft to operate its Portugal-Mexico services, thus providing seating for up to 388 passengers.
