Thus, we become an ally for stimulating international commerce, business and tourism", said Gian Carlo Nucci, CEO of Grupo Viva Aerobus.
“Mexican history and culture are at the heart of our city's identity, and we share a closer economic bond with Mexico than with almost any other country on Earth,” said Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti. “This new flight from LAX to Guadalajara will help make our ties to Mexico even stronger, and I thank Viva Aerobus for its investment in our city.”
Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau estimates that, due to this new route, approximately 18,000 tourists from Guadalajara will visit Los Angeles during the first year of operation.
