MAZATLÁN.- To generate more traffic from people traveling by air from Mazatlan to other cities and vice versa, it is necessary to achieve a decrease in the prices of flights to this destination, an objective that is already under the watch of Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres.
Benitez Torres revealed that the municipal government is already working on it and this year these efforts will give results.
“It is a historical matter, that those responsible for defining the costs of air travel put Mazatlan as an expensive destination, remember that Mazatlan occupied the third place nationally as a beach tourist destination, place that we lost many years ago, until we reached the eighth or ninth place, but the price of the flights was not adjusted, we continue to be considered an expensive destination, for that reason we already know what doors to touch (…) would have to be finalized this year, “he reported.
He pointed out that the high cost of flights to Mazatlan has generated many travelers leaving or arriving at the Culiacán Airport, which affects the air connectivity of the port.
“To cheapen flights is an objective that we bring in our portfolio, a lot of tourists and a lot of Mazatleco goes to Culiacán because it costs you the ticket cheaper (…) to get it down to the cost of flights in Culiacán, there many people go out there and this has caused us problems. “
The mayor said that on average flights in Culiacán are between 20 and 30 percent cheaper than in Mazatlan, so the goal is to achieve those prices for the port, which will benefit both travelers and airlines, because the more demand there is, the more frequencies of flights can be opened in this destination.
