WestWind to offer weekend flights between Scottsdale – Rocky Point
A new flight to Puerto Peñasco will take off beginning May 1st from Scottsdale, AZ with the goal of cutting down on time and distance to this seaside community.
Beginning May 1, 2015, the round-trip service operated by WestWind Air will depart Scottsdale at 2 p.m. with an estimated travel time of 1 hour 15 minutes, with return departing from Puerto Peñasco on Sundays at 4 p.m. The service is aimed particularly at executives, emergency services, as well as vacationers to Puerto Peñasco looking to cut out about 3 hours of travel time by flying rather than driving.
Tania Felix, promotion coordinator at the local Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCV), states the plane will have capacity for up to 9 people and sights are set on eventually having a plane with capacity for up to 19.
The round-trip cost is starting at $350 US. The possibility of increasing passenger capacity, as well as lowering costs, will depend on the response of travelers.
