The foreign and Mexican airlines announced, each on their own, the dates from which they will return to make regular flights between different destinations and Puerto Vallarta, thus reactivating commercial air bridges that would favor a return to connectivity for tourism purposes.

The Puerto Vallarta Airport had reached 5 million passengers per year.

This, after the operation of flights to and from Puerto Vallarta carried out by airlines from Canada, the United States, and Central America were suspended at the end of March before the outbreak of the health contingency due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They were followed by several national airlines, which, due to the drop in travel demand, canceled their recurring flights and stopped arriving at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport with the usual frequency.

The airport complex reached historical minimum levels of operation, reaching the point of reporting even a single landing in 24 hours. Foreign airlines, in general, stopped flying to destinations outside their countries of origin, and not only to Puerto Vallarta.

This is the list of airlines and the dates from which they regularize flights to Puerto Vallarta:
