Cal Jet Air has announced that it will offer international service to Mazatlan, its first tourist destination in Mexico, beginning this winter season. The announcement follows research conducted by the Mexico Tourism Board showing that Mazatlan needs more air seats to keep up with growing demand. The pilot program begins Jan. 9 and ends April 9, with nine weekly flights of 150-passenger capacity (1,350 total seats per week) from Houston, San Antonio, Denver, Los Angeles and Oakland, Calif. Roundtrip fares will start at $399. In addition to new routes from Cal Jet, U.S. Airways will increase frequency and seat capacity from Phoenix and American Airlines will restore the direct route from Dallas to Mazatlan in November.
