PUERTO VALLARTA AIRLINE NEWS:
Southwest Airlines announces plans to sell tickets to Mexico via a partnership with Mexican carrier Volaris.
Southwest details on codeshare schedules and "additional features regarding the partnership" will come by early 2010. Southwest says "the two airlines have completed the first step in creating a relationship that will eventually allow the carriers to offer Customers a seamless travel experience to a wide array of destinations. This initial agreement puts the two airlines on a path toward bringing more low fares and a better Customer experience across the U.S./Mexican border." The Southwest-Volaris agreement also must win government approval.
With Volaris, Southwest has now announced intentions to begin partnering with airlines in both Mexico and Canada. Canada's No. 2 airline –- low-cost carrier WestJet –- will be Southwest's partner north of the border.
As for today's announcement, what routes to Mexico might eventually have flights with Southwest flight numbers? Southwest didn't divulge any details, though Richard Sweet –- Southwest's Senior Director of Planning and Distribution – had this to say on Southwest's corporate blog: "Like our new codeshare partner WestJet, Volaris presently serves some pretty cool destinations ... Places like Cancun, Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, and Acapulco are certainly great places to vacation. Mexico City (via Toluca), Monterrey, and Guadalajara are great business travel destinations and will complement our efforts to attract more business travelers."
and USA expand airline agreement
MEXICO CITY – Mexico and the United States have signed an
agreement to expand from two to three the number of airlines allowed
to fly between U.S. airports and 14 of the main Mexican resorts
The accord would provide increased competition and flights to Acapulco,
Cancun, Cozumel, Guadalajara, Huatulco, Ixtapa, Loreto, Manzanillo,
Mazatalan, Merida, Monterrey, Oaxaca, Puerto Vallarta and San Jose
"Both businesses and individual consumers win when countries
allow their air carriers to compete for passengers," U.S. Ambassador
Tony Garza said in a statement. The agreement "will allow new
travel options and open the market to travelers who had, in the
past, never dreamed they could afford to buy an airline ticket,"
The agreement, signed by Jeffrey N. Shane, the U.S. undersecretary
of transportation, and Pedro Cerisola, Mexico's secretary of communication
and transportation, opens opportunities for more flights and lower
fares on many routes in the third-largest U.S. international air
The agreement adds a new provision for U.S. and Mexican carriers
to enter into code-sharing arrangements with carriers from third
countries for their U.S.-Mexico services.
