Following a brief pause at the end of last year, the Calafia Airlines Tijuana-Puerto Peñasco-Tijuana flight resumed operations as of Jan 6 th. Stronger promotion and a greater presence within the tourism markets of California and Baja California aim to position the flight as a secure connection in the region.
This aerial connection has represented an influx of nearly 3,000 passengers since operations began in April, 2022. In 2023, the flight is projected to top 5000 trips, per data provided by the Puerto Peñasco Airport administration.
This year, the goal is to strengthen the route throughout the region via greater promotion nationally and abroad. To date, the route has drawn in more tourism from Tijuana, San Diego, and Los Angeles. This current flight has established itself firmly through support of the Sonora Ministry of Tourism and the private sector, along with the municipal administration.
This has also included participation of the Puerto Peñasco Convention and Visitors Bureau in promoting the flight. The goal is to position Puerto Peñasco as the most important tourism destination in northwestern Mexico with flight connections. It’s important to note the Tijuana-Puerto Peñasco flight also can be boarded from Loreto and La Paz, Baja California. In 2023 flights will continue to be Mondays and Fridays.
