By: Patrick Ellis | Real Acapulco News - 02 July, 2011

(Acapulco, El Sur 1 July) Domestic airline Aeromar begins operations today of a new flight from Puebla to Acapulco and return. Since April, this frequency has been operating on a charter basis with a 49-seat aircraft, and as of July 1, it is a regularly scheduled flight, permitting reservations and ticket sales via the Internet. The governor of Puebla, Rafael Moreno Valle Rosas was the prime mover of the initiative. The flight departs Puebla at 1:40 pm every Friday and returns on Sunday afternoon at 5:15 pm. A round trip ticket sells for $900 pesos on a promotional basis, less than the average bus fare. Acapulco’s Secretary of Tourism has calculated that this flight, if full, will bring 8,000 passengers to Acapulco in three years, which implies an economic inflow of $20 million pesos for the community.
