The air connectivity between Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit with the rest of the country continues to grow. Viva Aerobus, Mexico’s ultra-low-cost airline, announced on Friday a new regular route from Tijuana to Puerto Vallarta beginning on December 13, 2019.
According to the airline, the flight will have three weekly frequencies on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays. This is the airline’s 100th domestic route (it has 118 total).
With this new route, Viva Aerobus connects two Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) airports: the Puerto Vallarta International Airport and the recently remodeled Tijuana airport, which facilities border crossings with the north via the Cross Border Xpress (CBX).
“The region’s tourism and local revenue benefit from this increase in connectivity, and this equals growth and development for both destinations,” said Raúl Revuelta, General Director for the GAP.
The estimated flight time from PVR to Tijuana is approximately three hours and 10 minutes there and two hours and 45 minutes back.
