"With the addition of Puerto Vallarta & Riviera Nayarit, Copa Airlines’ fifth destination in Mexico, we continue to demonstrate our confidence in this country and promote opportunities for the touristic and economic development of this region and the State of Jalisco. This flight will bring an influx of both business and leisure passengers to the region and connects it to Panama, as well as Copa’s other 79 destinations in 32 countries, benefiting from," said Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Airlines.

Puerto Vallarta is surrounded by Jalisco’s Sierra Madre Occidental mountains and the Mexican Pacific. The skyline is decorated with its buildings’ signature red roofs and golden sunsets. It offers visitors a wide selection of activities including walks through its art galleries and the calm waters of Banderas Bay, as well as the enjoyment of its fun nightlife and world-class golf tournaments. The city has more than 10,000 hotel rooms and 40 kilometers of beaches, which make it an excellent paradise for diving and fishing. This wonderful destination is located on the Pacific coast, west of the State of Jalisco, just over 300 kilometers from the city of Guadalajara and bordered by the state of Nayarit in the North.

Javier Aranda, General Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust commented, "we are honored that such a recognized and prestigious partner like Copa Airlines chose Puerto Vallarta as their newest destination. This direct flight from Panama to the International Airport of Puerto Vallarta will allow travelers from Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean, to experience the wonders of Mexico. As tourism continues to grow and become a key factor for the region’s economic growth, we are thrilled that passengers now have an easier connection to Puerto Vallarta thanks to Copa’s Hub of the Americas.”

It is the only destination in the Pacific that has a polo field that is the venue for major international events.

Marc Murphy, Public General Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau stated, "we are very proud and happy to make the Panama-Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit route a reality. With this new flight, multiple connections will be avoided, reducing time, distance and cost for Latin American tourists.
