California-based Virgin America is now offering low-fare, upscale flights from its home base of San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to Mexico’s Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR). The route will include five nonstop flights each week, making both Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit accessible to travelers.
Award-winning Virgin America is known for its posh, nicely appointed cabins and fabulous service, making it more attractive than ever for vacationers who are looking to escape the winter doldrums to head south of the border for a sunny getaway. The region surrounding Puerto Vallarta and the scenic Riviera Nayarit is home to a variety of popular attractions and top resorts.
In fact,Puerto Vallarta was recently named the Best Mexican Vacation Destination by U.S. News & World, while Harper’s Bazaar named the Riviera Nayarit, which is located just to the north of Puerto Vallarta, the Newest Global Celebrity Hotspot.
“We continue to see strong demand for Mexico travel and we’re pleased to launch new service to these historic and world-class destinations,” said David Cush, president and CEO of Virgin America. “With unrivaled service and amenities, we hope that our new flights will allow travelers to kick off their Mexican vacations in style, from the minute they step on board one of our aircraft.”
Last week,Virgin America hosted a fiesta at SFO to celebrate the inaugural flight. At the party, travelers were served margaritas and were serenaded by a mariachi band. Flights are offered from $119 plus tax, long with restrictions and other fees that may apply.
“Virgin America offers guests an unparalleled flying experience, just as Puerto Vallarta offers visitors a vacation unlike any other,” said Salvador Gonzalez Resendiz, mayor of Puerto Vallarta. “Puerto Vallarta is the perfect location for their newest warm—weather destination.”
Puerto Vallarta real estate remains one of Mexico’s most popular destinations, thanks to its rich history, unique culture and luxurious resorts. It is family-friendly and lies on the Pacific Coast on the border of Jalisco and Nayarit. Puerto Vallarta was also voted Friendliest City by Conde Nast Traveler and offers a truly unique vacation experience.
