DENVER- Two prominent airlines in the United States (Frontier) and Canada (WestJet) are set to enhance their schedules for increased flight service to popular Mexico destinations during the upcoming winter season.
In the United States, the budget-friendly airline Frontier Airlines has expanded its winter schedule to include Cancún. Beginning on November 16, Frontier Airlines (F9) will operate direct flights from three U.S. cities to Cancún International Airport.

These cities include Detroit, Minneapolis, and Chicago, and the daily non-stop flights are subject to government approval.
Daniel Shurz, Vice President at Frontier Airlines, emphasized the convenience and accessibility of planning tropical getaways as winter approaches, highlighting the ease of reaching these destinations.
WestJet (WS), the Canadian airline, is set to boost its capacity to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, by 19%.
This expansion includes flights originating from various Canadian cities such as Abbotsford, Calgary, Comox, Kelowna, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, and Winnipeg, offering a diverse array of options for travelers across Canada to plan their winter vacations in Mexico.
In addition to this, WestJet introduced a new weekly route connecting Prince George to Puerto Vallarta in July and is reinstating services to both Mazatlán and Los Cabos.
Currently, WestJet offers the highest number of routes to Puerto Vallarta from Canada. According to Aviación 21, the airline operated up to 183 flights per month during the previous winter season and plans to increase this to 212 per month for the autumn-winter season of 2023-24.
This capacity expansion coincides with WestJet’s transition to utilizing larger Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft and its acquisition of low-cost competitor Sunwing. It’s important to note that the U.S. and Canada are the primary sources of tourists to Mexico.
