Announcement: New Kansas City flight to the Riviera Nayarit

  • The Bahía de Banderas region is set to welcome a Vacation Express by Sunwing direct charter flight from Kansas City once a week during the 2019-2020 winter season.

The good news keeps on coming for the Riviera Nayarit. A new Vacation Express by Sunwing charter flight—operated by Viva Aerobus—is set to connect Kansas City, Missouri with the Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit area for the 2019-2020 winter season. This flight is a direct result of the intense promotional efforts by the destinations within the United States.

The direct flight will operate in two stages: once a week on Sundays from February 16 to March 15 and from May 24 through August 2, 2020, covering part of next year’s winter and summer seasons. The company will offer six-night vacation packages.

According to information provided by Vacation Express, the new route will operate with a 180-seat A-320 plane, which translates into approximately 2,500 new seats for the region.

Riviera Nayarit reaffirms its status as a first-class tourist development.

“The continual promotion by the Riviera Nayarit CVB has generated a lot of interest among travelers in the Midwest who want to visit or are ready to return to the destination, knowing that it’s safe, close-by, and very beautiful,” said Marc Murphy, managing director of the Riviera Nayarit CVB and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association.
