Puerto Vallarta welcomes Swoop's inaugural flight from Abbotsford


Travellers can enjoy the sunny shores of Mexico with one-way flights from $159CAD

CALGARY, Jan. 12, 2019 /CNW/ - Today Swoop celebrates its inaugural flight from Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) to Puerto Vallarta's Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR). Swoop flight WO600 departs from Abbotsford at 12:20 p.m. PST and arrives in Puerto Vallarta at 7:02 p.m. CST.

This marks Swoop's second inaugural flight to Puerto Vallarta this week, the first from Hamilton, Ontario on January 8, 2019.  Travellers can also enjoy flights from Hamilton to Cancun beginning January 14, 2019 and Abbotsford to Mazatlán beginning January 20, 2019.

"Mexico is an important market for Swoop, with an estimated 1.9 million Canadians visiting every year," said Karen McIsaac, Senior Advisor of Communications at Swoop. "We are pleased to see many first-time snowbird vacationers on our flights to Mexico which is confirmation of our mission to bring affordable fares to more Canadians, allowing them to travel more often."

"Swoop offers multiple weekly flights from YXX to Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlán which is excellent news for travellers in our region," said Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun.  "The Abbotsford International Airport continues to grow and our partnership with Swoop is a significant contributor to that success. YXX now serves our region with daily flights to Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, as well as multiple weekly flights to Nevada and Mexico."

"Puerto Vallarta's airport has been enjoying a continual increase in flights in the past two seasons and these new flights are a sign on the continuous interest in Puerto Vallarta's tourism offerings," said Javier Aranda Pedrero, General Director, Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board. "Our guests will find that Puerto Vallarta can offer an exceptional warm and sunny vacation at every budget."

Flights are now available for booking through to April 27, 2019.
