Last month, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport received the Distinction for Inclusive Tourism, which is granted to companies and institutions that incorporate accessibility criteria into their daily operations, as well as promoting a culture within the organization that cares for people with disabilities.

“To achieve this, we advise and work hand in hand with a consultant to address the points evaluated by the Secretary of Federal Tourism, which is the body that awards the distinction. These include indoor and outdoor installations of facilities, appropriate bathrooms, signage throughout the complex, as well as security services, attention, and information,” explained Miguel Cravioto, communications manager at the Pacific Airport Group (Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico).

It is noteworthy that the minimum passing grade to obtain this distinction is 85, but the Puerto Vallarta International Airport achieved a rating of 91.76.

“We are seeking to create an ADA step for passengers, which means that their experience is Accessible, Dignified and Agile. We contribute to building a society without barriers, through the culture of inclusion, providing care tools based on the different levels of assistance required by passengers with disabilities,” he finished.

“The airports that belong to Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) maintain a commitment to passengers with disabilities, all with the aim to provide them with a better travel experience.” — Miguel Cravioto, communications manager of Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico.
