Expansion of the Puerto Vallarta Airport

Since August of last year, works began that will expand the capacity of the Gustavo Díaz Ordaz airport in Puerto Vallarta by 150%, one of the most important in Mexico for tourism from the United States and Canada.

The Puerto Vallarta airport is under construction to carry out the essential expansion by the Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) and the state government. The investment amounts to seven billion pesos and they warn that this expansion will help to detonate tourism even more, both in Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta. Today the airport moves 3 million users a year and it is expected that with Terminal 2 tourist traffic will increase by 30%.

Growth Estimates

Currently, 13 national and 40 international routes depart from the airport, mainly to the United States. Among the destinations are the cities of Houston, Dallas and Los Angeles. In fact, most of the users of the air terminal are from the United States.

Puerto Vallarta has managed to fully recover from the pandemic and there has even been a growth of more than 12% in relation to the 2019 pre-pandemic numbers in the real estate sector. Likewise, the record pre-pandemic of hotel occupancy has been exceeded by more than 7%, according to GAP estimates.

In accordance with the expansion project, they estimate to complete the remodeling of the new terminal in the winter of 2024.

Terminal 2 will have 62,000 square meters, which translates into a 150% growth in building capacity. The space on the roads will be tripled and the number of parking spaces will be increased.

In addition, in consequence of the ecological commitment, the use of Net Zero technology is affirmed, that is, the building will be zero carbon emissions and sustainable with the generation of electricity and water resources.
