New – Virgin America started offering five weekly non-stops to Puerto Vallarta (PVR) from San Francisco (SFO). The US domestic award winning airline expands it’s Mexican coverage to its third destination. Puerto Vallarta joins the ranks of Los Cabos and Cancun as the other Mexican destinations served by the airline.
Commenting on the expansion and the new non-stop route to Puerto Vallarta, David Cush, President and Chief Executive Officer of Virgin America shared, “We continue to see strong demand for Mexico travel and we’re pleased to launch new service to these historic and world-class destinations.” As for destinations, the 3 million annual tourists who travel to Puerto Vallarta region and the Bay of Banderas can chose a from vacation on the Riviera Nayarit or Puerto Vallarta itself.
The mayor of Puerto Vallarta excited for the new airline’s arrival offered these remarks, “Virgin America offers guests an unparalleled flying experience, just as Puerto Vallarta offers visitors a vacation unlike any other.” Salvador González Resendiz continued with “Puerto Vallarta is the perfect location for their newest warm-weather destination. We look forward to complementing Virgin America’s excellent service.”
The passengers flying on the inagural flight receive access to a gate-side fiesta at SFO complete with margaritas and a mariachi band. Certainly each passenger will be able to find both items plentiful in Puerto Vallarta, but it is what else they’ll find that will really make for memorable vacation. The adventures, the resorts, the food, the sunsets, and the hospitality will keep bringing them back; I know, I’ll be heading back soon.
