Association of Hotels and Tourism Companies of Mazatlan negotiates with airlines for affordable flights


Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- The Association of Hotels and Tourism Companies of Mazatlan, negotiates with national airlines, to lower rates in some seasons of the year.

The airline director, Gilberto Aviles, said that this is to seek a better customer profile that leaves more money .

For years, Mazatlan has been classified as an expensive destination and there is no point in obtaining more flights if tourists prefer to travel to Culiacán since it is cheaper for them.

The same happens with the Mazatlecos who travel to the Sinaloan capital to travel, what is sought is that the aerial demand grows in this terminal.
