Sectur works on new flights from Seattle-Mzt, San Francisco –Mzt and Denver-Mzt
The Secretary of Tourism Óscar Pérez Barros and a delegation of the Hotel Association held a working meeting with the Director-General of OMA, Ricardo Dueñas, with the firm objective of establishing strategies for the first time managing flights hand in hand with them.
The negotiations on the negotiating table seek to make the following flights a reality: Seattle – Mzt; San Francisco – MZT and Denver – Mzt.
For the national market, they will apply the same strategy, focused on the destinations of Bajío, Puebla, Ciudad Juárez and higher frequencies to Monterrey and Mexico City. This will trigger visits to the three airports of Sinaloa.
Pérez Barros also had a meeting with the Director-General of Magnicharters, Gabriel Bojórquez, where the talks began to confirm for this winter season (January) the flight from Mazatlan to Ciudad Juárez – El Paso, and for next summer the flight Mazatlan- Chihuahua.
The head of Tourism of the state, reiterated the wise vision of Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel since it was set that the Tourist Tianguis was made in Sinaloa. Thanks to this there is interest from large hotel chains such as Grupo Presidente, Habita, AM Resorts, Hyatt, Radisson, Hilton, and Fiesta Americana Grand, in addition to those already confirmed as Courtyard by Marriot, Fiesta Inn, One, City Express Plus and Avid. It is expected that we will soon have good news from these international firms.
These brands would come to reinforce Mazatlan as a growing destination, where firms such as Park Inn, HolidayInn, Park Royal, Gamma, Ibis, SleepInn, Wyndham, Best Western, among others already operate.
In the matter of Cruises, from this season, large cruise ships will arrive in Mazatlan, with a capacity of 5,000 passengers of the Norwegian and Carnival shipping companies, which handle a higher rate, so the passenger profile will allow having higher Average spending on your stay.
Similarly, the Celebrity and Royal Caribbean shipping companies have already confirmed their arrival program for Mazatlan in 2021, which will allow boat arrivals of more than 4,000 passengers.
Recall that the big firms had been absent and today they return with confidence and with ample itinerary.
As for air connectivity, for this season new flights are opened from Regina and Ottawa with Swoop and Victoria and Quebec with Sunwing. This 2019, for the first time, WestJet has operated the Calgary route all year round, having excellent results. Flights from Montreal and Abbotsford continue, we have an expansion of Edmonton and Minneapolis by Sun Country.
With this the SECTUR reaches more than 168,000 seats for the international market, thus growing 15% in our offer for the winter season, with more than 33,000 new seats.
