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 unrivalled 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,along 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
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.
