American Airlines will operate the new daily direct flight from the Los Angeles International Airport to the Lic.

The flight begins operations on December 15, 2016 and is subject to government approval, but it’s already open for reservations.
“The increase in airlift to the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta is excellent news and we’ll keep working on getting more of this type of news,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We know about another couple of flights that are in the process of being confirmed, and we really hope to be announcing those soon.”
