Southwest Airlines begins daily flight to Puerto Vallarta from Oakland International
Southwest Airlines will begin its first international flights out of Oakland International Airport on Sunday with daily service to Puerto Vallarta and San Jose del Cabo.
The first flight to Puerto Vallarta (PVR) departs at 10:40 a.m.
“Linking the East and North Bay to these Mexican beach resort areas with time-saving itineraries brings our customers low-fare and high-value service that traffic patterns show is already important in their lives,” said Leah Koontz, vice president of finance at Southwest, in a statement from the airline and the Port of Oakland.
The new flights are part of Southwest Airlines expansion into Mexico announced last year.
“Travelers across Southwest’s western network — in particular those in Reno-Tahoe, Boise, Spokane and Portland — also now have faster and more reliable options by connecting here at OAK,” said Bryant L. Francis, director of aviation at the Port of Oakland.
