Southwest Airlines has filed an application with the US Department of Transportation to provide daily, nonstop service between Denver and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, beginning in November 2015 if the relevant governmental agencies give their approval.
"Our new daily flight from the Rockies to the Mexican Pacific coastline will give our Colorado customers, as well as connecting passengers, quick access to another international destination," declared Steven Swan, Southwest Airlines director of international planning. "We expect strong demand from both leisure and business customers for this route to the growing region that straddles both Jalisco and Nayarit."
Southwest will initiate service to Puerto Vallarta, the carrier's fourth destination in Mexico, on 7 June with a daily flight both to and from John Wayne Airport Orange County (SNA) in California.
Flight times and fares for the Denver- Puerto Vallarta service will be announced in the coming weeks.
