The Secretary of Tourism of Sinaloa, Francisco Cordova Celaya, announced that for the Fall Season 2014 (from October) Delta Airlines added a new flight in the route Los Angeles-Mazatlan with a capacity of 160 people and often six times per week.
This new flight translates into an increase of almost 1,000 seats per week and 20% of international seats.
At the same time, negotiations are underway with other major airlines to the destination, such as: Frontier, Sun Wing, West Jet, among others, because what is sought is to fully recover the seats that had been lost by crisis financial and security wave that hit our country.
This is certainly great news for Mazatlan and for all tourism service providers. Congratulations!
