|Airport Expansion Gives PV Competitive Edge|
Puerto Vallarta's steady growth has been accompanied by improved services and an extensive expansion of its infrastructure to better serve both the increasing number of tourists who visit Puerto Vallarta every year and the city's ever-growing population.

For example, Puerto Vallarta’s Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport underwent an ambitious renovation and expansion program in 2007 that allowed it to increase capacity by 141%.
A new state of the art $20,000,000 USD satellite terminal was recently inaugurated in the presence of Communications and Transportation Minister Luis Téllez Kuenzler; Jalisco State Governor, Emilio González Márquez; Cora Cecilia Pinedo Alonso, Secretary General of Nayarit’s government; Puerto Vallarta City Mayor, Javier Bravo Carbajal and executives of the Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico.
The new terminal will cater to international flights to and from the USA and Canada and has the capacity to accommodate an additional 800,000 passengers per year. Its modern and spacious installations double the number of available jet bridges for enhanced passenger comfort and moving walk ways connect it to the main terminal.
New and improved immigration facilities as well as an updated baggage claim system also allow for quicker arrivals formalities. The new satellite building also houses exclusive open spaces for art and photography exhibits by local artists.
Mayor Javier Bravo Carbajal is committed to continue improving the city's infrastructure so that Puerto Vallarta will continue to be an ever more attractive destination for domestic and international tourism.
He pointed out that with the joint work of the three levels of government, as with the confidence of entrepreneurs and the work of Vallartenses, even more projects will soon be completed for the benefit of all.
