In a meeting held to report on the progress of the local tourism sector, State Governor Francisco “Kiko” Vega de Lamadrid and the Secretary of Tourism (SECTURE) announced that in the month of August, Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, added a fourth weekly flight from Tijuana to Los Cabos.
The carrier also improved its weekly seat offering in the market by adding its Embraer 190 jet airliner with increased seat capacity for 99 passengers -11 in Clase Premier, Aeromexico’s Business Class Cabin-, with the following flight schedules:

Aeromexico’s Corporate Sales Director, Jorge Goytortua, said “We continue to strengthen our presence in Tijuana, a major destination for the airline because of its geographic location, by increasing our weekly seat capacity to Los Cabos by more than 50%”.
“Passengers from Los Cabos can now connect directly from Tijuana to seven domestic destinations across the nation and to Shanghai in China, and use the new binational Cross Border Xpress (CBX) that reduces border crossing times to San Diego from two hours to just 15 minutes,” added Goytortua.
Baja California Secretary of Tourism Oscar Escobedo said: “air traffic flows through the Tijuana International Airport were up 26% in July alone, compared to July 2015.” He added that “Tijuana is a city that offers great connectivity options as reflected in the numbers, and we continue promoting actions to help boost our touristic offer.”
The airline and the state agency continue working to provide more and better travel options from Baja California to Mexico City and the world, through an extensive route network offering great flight connections.
