Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Canadians in Hamilton and Abbotsford will have an easier way to reach Puerto Vallarta this winter as Swoop, Canada's leading ultra-low-cost airline, has announced service into Puerto Vallarta's International Airport (PVR) with the addition of two new routes.
British Columbia's Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) will enjoy twice weekly service beginning January 12, 2019 and Ontario's John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport (YHM) saw its first flight depart on January 8, and will offer service twice weekly.
"PV welcomes Swoop's new routes from Hamilton and Abbotsford. Canadians make up one of our top visitors because of our city's sunny beaches," said Javier Aranda, Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board. "We invite them to also try one of our over 300 restaurants, take a day trip to the jungles of our Sierra Madre mountains or raise their adrenaline on the waters of Banderas Bay."
"Puerto Vallarta is a brand-new route for Hamilton International and a very popular destination for Canadians," said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop. "Combining Swoop's ultra-low fare with the favorable exchange between the dollar and peso makes the value proposition of exploring Mexico enticing for families and budget travellers vacationers looking to escape the cold winter weather."
The Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport welcomed its first-ever Sunwing flight from Quebec City's Jean Lesage International Airport on December 17th; marking the beginning of the tour operator's seasonal weekly flight service to Vallarta-Nayarit. Flights will take place every Monday until April 15, 2019.
This popular beach resort city is one of Canadian's most sought-after winter vacation destinations. Historically, almost 15% of the destination's international visitors are Canadians. At the beginning of this year Expedia.ca announced that in their survey of a 1,000 Canadians, Puerto Vallarta was a top recommendation for travel in 2019.Source: PR.com
