Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) announced its expansion plan, which includes the creation of a new terminal at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. This project is part of their 2020-24 Master Development Program.

An investment of 3 million pesos has been considered for its construction. This project is within the investment plans for around 28 billion pesos to strengthen the infrastructure of the 12 airports that GAP operates in Mexico.

This new terminal building will be a NET Zero smart building, which will present an energy saving of 40.78% and a drinking water saving of 58.3%. Each baggage system will have two CT inspection kits for added security.

Likewise, during 2020, it was invested in security equipment with a value of 8 million pesos, as well as in a Baggage Handling System for 138 million pesos, in the rehabilitation of the airfield for 168 million pesos, in the Rescue and Fire Extinction Service for 22 million pesos, in solar panels for 14 million pesos and in the current terminal building for 1.4 million pesos.

Finally, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport received 24% more flights during December 2020 compared to the previous month, with operations from seven national airlines, six from the United States and four from Canada.

“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.”
Aaron Fisher

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”
Eduardo González

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”
