More flights to Mexico are being introduced from Oakland International Airport in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The airport has become the fastest-growing in the region thanks to Mexicana and Volaris’s decisions to expand their schedules.
On November 10th, Mexicana Airlines reintroduced its twice-weekly flights to Leon, which is the country’s fifth-largest city and situated close to the popular holiday destination of San Miguel de Allende.
In addition to the route, Mexicana also offers flights to Guadalajara and Zacatecas from Oakland, where it has operated flights for more than a decade.
Volaris launched a second daily flight to Guadalajara on Monday (November 23rd), with the carrier also operating routes to Tijuana and Toluca.
Acting director of aviation for the Port of Oakland Deborah Ale Flint said more travellers were beginning to appreciate the airport’s "easy-to-use facilities".
"Now, with more choices to Mexico from Oakland, Bay Area travellers have the added benefit of more destinations and competitive pricing," she commented.
Earlier this month, Alaska Airlines launched new flights to Maui and Hawaii from the airport.
