On July 14 Virgin America Airlines, one of the top three domestic airlines in North America, announced its intention to open a new route connecting the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to the International Airport Puerto Vallarta (PVR) in Mexico this winter.
This will be the third destination for Virgin America to Mexico and in the course of the last eight months, the airline expanded its service with flights to Los Cabos and Cancun:
– Cancun from Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.
– Los Cabos from Boston, Las Vegas, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington.
David Cush, President and CEO of Virgin America says about this new path:
“We have seen a strong demand for travel to our destinations in Mexico and we are hoping to give our passengers a choice of worldwide entertainment,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush. “We are proud to be growing and offering travelers a very special flight experience at a time when most airlines are cutting schedules and amenities.” (Source: virginamerica.com)
This news shows that despite the exaggerated information handled by the national and international media about the lack of security in our country, Mexico remains a vacation destination and a favorite for American tourists.
