MEXICALI, BC – At least 10 new Volaris flights have been inaugurated in Mexicali, with the aim of increasing connectivity not only for the border city, but also for the entire state of Baja California.
“Baja California is increasingly connected to the rest of the country,” said Governor Marina del Pilar Avila Olmeda, during the inauguration of the new flights, as well as the launch of a plane with the Welcome to Baja sign, a campaign to promote the state’s destinations in Mexico and the rest of the world.
During her message and in the presence of executives from the airline, the airport and the State Ministry of Tourism, the governor listed the beauty and tourist attractions offered by the region for its natural attractions, wine, gastronomy, sporting events, culture, arts, among other experiences that the state offers to national and international visitors.
The new connecting destinations in Mexicali are Monterrey, Ciudad Juarez, Queretaro, Tuxtla Gutierrez, Los Mochis, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, Hermosillo, Chihuahua and Oaxaca. In this sense, the governor pointed out that there are future projects to continue expanding the operation of the airport precinct.
In addition to the above, a new flight was recently launched between the city of Tijuana and Villahermosa, in the state of Tabasco.
“We are going to continue connecting Baja California with our entire country, we are going to continue opening routes, we are going to continue in this effort. I thank the different airlines for opening more flights,” the governor said.
The governor made special reference to the value of the Welcome to Baja campaign as an instrument for the world to see the beauty of Baja California, since tourism is one of the economic activities that generates the most revenue, having surpassed numbers prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We thank the entire tourism, gastronomy and hotel industry of our state, with whom we have been working for some time,” he explained, and pointed out that in the coming months new high-impact tourism projects will be launched that will promote the state and bring wellbeing to the families that depend on this activity.
Present at the event were the Baja California Secretary of Tourism, Miguel Aguiñiga Rodríguez; the commercial director of Volaris, Omar Carrera Márquez; the director of Mexicali Airport, Víctor Manuel García; John García Catalán, commander of Mexicali International Airport; and the president of the Mexican Association of Hotels and Motels of Mexicali, Francisco Javier García López.
