Nonstop service from Houston starts January 9, 2019 and operates Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The Mazatlán Tourism Board announced today the launch of United Airlines seasonal service from Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport to Mazatlán’s General Rafael Buelna International Airport starting January 9, 2019 and continuing through March 30, 2019. The service will operate Wednesday and Saturday and use an ERJ-175 aircraft with a southbound flying time of 2 hours and 32 minutes and 2 hours and 19 minutes northbound.

“We are very excited to have United Airlines again offering nonstop service from Houston, TX, to Mazatlán,” said Marco Garcia Castro, Secretary of Tourism for the State. “This seasonal route will provide visitors to Mazatlán more choice and convenience to travel to our great destination especially considering Houston is a major hub for connections from other United gateways,” he added.
