Volaris to connect PVR-Riviera Nayarit with the American Southwest

The Mexican airline announced the new Phoenix-Puerto Vallarta/Riviera route that will start in June of this year.

Volaris announced its new Phoenix-Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit (PHX-PVR) route starting on June 16th of this year, expanding the connectivity between that region and the Mexican Pacific.

The new flight, which began ticketing on Friday, February 8, will allow clients to travel to and enjoy one of Mexico’s premier tourist destinations.

“The route between Phoenix and Puerto Vallarta allows Volaris to consolidate its presence in the international market,” said airline executives.

The flight will be permanent with two frequencies per week on Fridays and Sundays. It will leave Puerto Vallarta at 11:08 a.m. On its return flight it will depart Phoenix at 1:16 p.m., arriving in Puerto Vallarta at 5:56 p.m.

The airline expectations are high for the flight as this is a very important market not only of travelers of Mexican descent, but also of North Americans who reside in Phoenix and the surrounding areas who travel to Mexico.

The flight to Phoenix is one of several recent new flight announcements to the US and Canada, including the Sun Country flight from Las Vegas and the Swoop flight that began two connections earlier this year from Hamilton and Abbotsford, Canada.
