La Paz, Baja California Sur — Recent meetings held with Southwest airlines could see international air connections from the United States with the state’s capital city.

Meetings held between la Secretaría de Turismo, Economía y Sustentabilidad of Baja California Sur and the subsecretaría de Planeación y Política Turística del Gobierno Federal with Southwest Airlines could result in La Paz being connected with several major US cities.

Luis Humberto Araiza López, head of Turismo, Economía y Sustentabilidad explained that “La Paz has an extraordinary tourism potential that is being recognized by the global market, which is why we are joining forces […] to consolidate our capital city as a world-class destination.”

He says that La Paz is undergoing international highlights with the recognition of world-class events such as the Tour de France Stage La Paz competition, which is why they are wanting to connect the destination with the US.

The meetings with the airline are part of the public policies that the current administration is using to boost the economic growth of Baja California Sur through the development of tourism.
