Islands of Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, the newest member of Villa Group Resorts and Baja’s first “million-star” resort, this week began seeing new guests arrive in Loreto from two new twice-weekly flights to the city via Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline. The flights originate from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Mexico City and will depart every Thursday and Sunday. The inaugural flight landed on March 24.
The resort, which is situated on one of the most pristine coastlines in the world on the Sea of Cortez, and boasts unobstructed nighttime views of “a million” stars, has become a popular tourist destination for travelers from both the Los Angeles area, as well as domestically within Mexico. These new flights to and from the Islands of Loreto are sure to bring even more tourism to the area.
The new multimodal route will depart from Mexico City on Thursdays and Sundays at 8 a.m., stop in Culiacan, then arrive in Loreto at 10:57 a.m., and continue to its final destination in Los Angeles, arriving at 1:22 p.m. The second flight will fly the opposite direction, bringing guests from Los Angeles direct to Loreto (dep LAX 2:37 p.m., arr LTO 5:44 p.m.) before continuing on to Culiacan and then Mexico City, arriving at 11:12 p.m. Flights will be operated on Aeromexico’s fleet of Embraer 145s, which seat 50 passengers.
“With Aeromexico’s new flights, it’s clear that there is growing interest in the Islands of Loreto as a vacation destination for both domestic and international travelers, “said Owen Perry, owner and president of Villa Group. “These new flights complement other recent schedule additions that make it easy to get to Loreto from cities throughout the U.S. and Mexico. It’s great to see airlines like Aeromexico making such a strong commitment to our region.”
