Mexico - Frontier - And Delta - And JetBlue

Wed Sep 13, 2006 3:35 pm

Earlier today I started a thread based on the DOT's foinal approval of Frontier for LAX-SJD.

At that time, the DOT had not filed the decisions (or I couldn't find them) but now they have.

They have made finall all their tentative decvisions. So Frontier gets LAX-SJD,
Delta gets LAX-PVR and JetBlue gets JFK-CUN.

Congrats to all. It has been a long journey - ten or eleven months?

cheers

That LAX-SJD is welcome. Other carriers were charging an arm and two legs for that sector...

Frontier is offering an introductory fare of $198 round trip (ex taxes) LAX-SJD-LAX:

Woohoo! I hope the JFK-CUN service starts soon - I'd like to go there this April. If not, it's HOU again...

Just stay tuned folks !!!

PVR will see a dramatic growth in traffic from the U.S. and Canada in the years to come. The Vallarta region is now second to Cancun in the country, in terms of tourism development and infrastructure. The only problem is the airport, which remains very small and inefficient. Additional expansion is urgently needed.

I foresee a paramount battle between Alaska and Delta for a larger share of tha market from the U.S. West Coast. Frontier will consolidate its strong position in the U.S. Midwest; you should come down and see how many " Whole different animals " are parked at the apron of PVR in the winter days, any given day !!!

Best regards
No matter how you fly...just never get your wings clipped !

Are there any plans to expand the PVR airport?

No doubt, only 3 jetways is certainly not much. Of course pax can be bussed, but under Mexico's burning sun, that might not really be a preferrable option.

Yep. I was just in PVR this past April and it was a madhouse. Granted it was around Easter, but the facility is tiny and there are just so many people. The baggage claim is a nightmare as well.
