Puerto Vallarta airport is still booming
Flight activity in the Puerto Vallarta airport continues to increase. This is happening thanks to the reactivation of national and international airlines. In the first week of August 2021, they are collectively completing more than 430 flights. A total of 1,933 operations is the projection for the month, according to Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP).
The operator of the “Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz” International Airport, which serves Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit, released the flight schedules for the eighth month of the year. It highlightis a 2.3% increase in the number of services over July.
Although GAP has not reported a significant increase in flights, United is still the most active company internationally, with an average of 66 flights per week on the Houston, Chicago, Newark, Denver, Los Angeles, and San Francisco routes.
Also notable are the new routes launched by Aeromar: Aguascalientes, with an average of four flights per week; San Luis Potosí, with six; and McAllen, in the United States, with two. Viva Aerobus and Volaris continue with 66 and 39 frequencies per week, respectively.
International airlines with scheduled operations for this month are American, Delta, Alaska, Southwest, United, Frontier, Sun Country, Spirit, and West Jet. Domestic airlines flying to the region include Aeromar, T.A.R., Aeroméxico-Aerolitoral, Magnicharter, Viva Aerobus, and Volaris.
Below is a list of flights announced for August for both new routes and increased frequencies.
The Riviera Nayarit is a safe destination.
