The Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico confirmed that the Vallartense air terminal has recovered 34 of the 49 active routes it had in February, before the health contingency, of which 25 are to other countries.
Based on the previous numbers, Puerto Vallarta has been one of the tourist destinations that are recovering the fastest arrival of international passengers at a national level.
A clear example was this last week of the year, where the international airport of Puerto Vallarta had an intense journey with the arrival of 433 flights that arrived during the last week of December 25-31, 2020.
Foreign tourists were still arriving, mainly Americans from cities such as Seattle, Washington, Phoenix, Houston, Chicago, Dallas and San Francisco where temperatures are very low, and Canadian foreigners who represent the second most important market for Puerto Vallarta.
Definitely, Puerto Vallarta's International Airport is one of the ones that has experienced the fastest recovery and offers high expectations regarding its early return to last year's figures although this will take some months.
