Jetlines plans Mexico routes - to compete with WestJet's Swoop

Jetlines, the yet to fly Canadian low-cost carrier has announced it intends to provide future service to several sun destinations in Mexico including Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, and Cancun.

Jetlines has reached agreements with both Grupo Aeroportuario del PacĂ­fico  (GAP) to provide future service to the Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) and the Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) as well as Cancun International Airport (CUN). Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, and Cancun are some of Mexico’s top tourism destinations for Canadians with nearly two million passengers travelling from Canada down to Mexico every year, with the numbers continually rising.



CEO Javier Suarez commented, “We are thrilled to announce future service to these airports. I have worked in this market extensively and have a deep understanding of how to operate successful routes in and out of Mexico. We look forward to providing Canadians with ultra-low fares for their vacation plans. With the money saved, Canadians will have the ability to spend more at their destinations; staying longer or in nicer resorts with their friends and family members. Our low fares will also encourage Mexicans to visit beautiful Canada.”

GAP’s CEO Raul Revuelta commented, “We at GAP are pleased to welcome Jetlines at our Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos airports. During 2018, for the first time in history, we received a combined traffic of 10 million passengers at both airports; this due to the growing number of hotel rooms and the high quality of the touristic products offered at these amazing destinations. I am sure that our Canadian friends will have a wonderful time while visiting Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos, and we at GAP will continue to work to provide them with the best airport experience.”

ASUR’s Customer and Route Development Director Alejandro Vales commented, “ASUR is delighted to welcome Jetlines to our Cancun airport. A brand-new Canadian airline bridging new origins from Canada to our world-class destination will be a recipe for success indeed.”

The Company’s ability to service these routes is subject to the completion of the airline licensing process and the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.     -- --
