Yesterday, Sunday, December 16, the Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport gave a warm welcome to the Panamanian airline Copa Airlines.
Landing at 12:48 PM, the plane was greeted with a very Mexican opening ceremony: a water salut, mariachi and tequila.

The airline inaugurated its first flight, a direct route from Panama to Puerto Vallarta (its fifth destination in Mexico) over a Boeing 737-700 aircraft with a capacity for up to 12 passengers in business class and 112 in tourist. Copa Airlines will operate flights on Thursdays and Sundays.

Copa Airlines not only has the mission of connecting various destinations through Panama as a point of connection with the Americas, it also seeks to promote cultural exchange, support tourism and commercial expansion of Puerto Vallarta – Riviera Nayarit, as it is the 80th destination of the airline in the continent.

Highlighting its continuous progress and the quality of the service they provide, Copa Airlines is part of the global Star Alliance airline network and for five consecutive years it has been recognized as the most punctual airline in Latin America by the Official Airline Guide (OAG), as well as the fourth most punctual in the world.

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others. And, because the way your magazines are located, we can really capture the clients we want."

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”
