As a testament to its appeal, Puerto Vallarta recently reported a significant year-over-year increase in air passenger traffic, especially during the month of February.

According to official figures from the Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, Puerto Vallarta International Airport recorded a significant increase of 7.7 percent in the number of passengers during the month of February. This means that there were a total of 662,200 passengers compared to the 614,600 passengers recorded in February 2023.

In addition, the cumulative figures for the first two months of the year also showed positive growth, with a total of 1,362,100 passengers compared to 1,301,700 in 2023, an increase of 4.6 percent.

This increase is largely due to the growing number of passengers on international flights, which increased significantly by 14.5 percent compared to February 2023, reaching a total of 493,700 users.

This upward trend in international travel continues to drive overall passenger growth for the destination. In the first two months of the year, international arrivals totaled 992,500 passengers, an 11.3 percent increase over the 2023 figures.

With the upcoming Easter holidays and the influx of international visitors during Spring Break, Puerto Vallarta leads the nation in occupancy projections for beach destinations.
