Passenger traffic at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport grew 22 percent compared to 2019, prior to the health contingency.

This was announced during the Advisory Commission of the Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico, the institution that manages this air terminal, which presented the results obtained during 2022.

In addition to passenger growth, there was an 11 percent increase in operations and a 36 percent increase in the number of seats.

Currently, the airport terminal has 49 destinations (37 international and 12 national), as well as 23 airlines (16 international and 7 national).

In addition to this, the investments made in the Master Development Plan (PMD) 2020-2024 were presented, where the most outstanding project is Terminal 2, the first airport building in Latin America that will have Net Zero certification standards and in which 7 billion pesos are invested.

Some other improvements that are being made at the airport are:

  • The implementation of new machinery for checking baggage.
  • The remodeling of restrooms.
  • The expansion of the commercial platform.
  • The upcoming construction of the facilities for the National Defense Secretariat.

“During this last month of the 2022, Puerto Vallarta will offer an average of 595 weekly departure operations. This, coupled with the growth of 44 percent of national passengers, consolidates the tourism leadership of Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit”, said José Amador, director of the Puerto Vallarta International Airport.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”
Jason Lavender

“Vallarta Lifestyles speaks for itself, it’s a good quality publication with great image, that’s why we have advertised since we started our business. Without any doubt, it is the most read magazine. Its articles and advertising are target to the audience we’re looking for. Vallarta Lifestyles has grown the same way Puerto Vallarta has.”
