As interest in Mexico continues to rise, two new and much anticipated flights to Mexico have been confirmed.
Having recently received approval from U.S. regulators, the consumer-lauded airline Virgin America has announced that their new flight from San Francisco, California to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico will begin on December 2nd of this year. The direct flight will run twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays).
Virgin has been quoted as seeing an increasing demand for flights to Mexico from their customers, and this new flight from San Francisco to Puerto Vallarta will become Virgin’s third destination in Mexico. Virgin America currently flies to Cancun and Los Cabos.
The biggest increase in demand for Mexico has interestingly come from the Russian market. In 2010, Mexico saw an increase of travel from Russia of 134% and from Jan. to Apr. of 2011, Mexico has already seen 64% more travelers from Russian than in 2010!
To accommodate this enthusiastic market, the Russian airline Aeroflot has confirmed that they will begin a new flight from Moscow to Cancun on October 30th of this year. The flight will run every ten days and accommodate 241 passengers.
As more and more new flights to Mexico continue to be confirmed, the 2010/2011 winter is on pace to see record numbers of international visitors.
