American Airlines To Begin Service from Phoenix to Tijuana, Mexico

by Pleasant View

America’s Friendliest Airport recently announced the start of American Airlines’ new international service to Tijuana, Mexico. Daily, nonstop service from Phoenix to General Abelardo L. Rodríguez International Airport began Feb. 15, 2024.

“Phoenix and Mexico share strong trade and tourism connections, and this new direct route to Tijuana further reinforces our partnership,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “We expect the new flight to generate 10 million dollars in economic impact every year and ultimately help us on our mission to diversify and fortify Phoenix’s growing economy, particularly in the manufacturing industry. I want to thank the great Aviation Team and American Airlines for all of their hard work to make today’s announcement possible.”

American Airlines flight 4841 will depart PHX at 11:15 a.m. and arrive at PHX at 2:42 p.m. daily. The airline will utilize both Embraer 175 and Bombardier CRJ700 aircraft.

Tijuana is Mexico’s second most populous city in the state of Baja California and is known for its lively entertainment and art scenes while boasting pleasantly mild temperatures year-round. Phoenix is the only United States destination for Tijuana. TIJ is one of the most connected airports in Mexico providing service to more than 40 destinations within Mexico.

This is the 14th Mexican destination American serves from Phoenix Sky Harbor. International flights provide important economic benefits to the community. Pre-COVID, international flights had an annual economic impact of $3 billion.

“Sky Harbor is the gateway to our community, and with this new nonstop service to Tijuana, we are now connecting to even more destinations throughout Mexico, making travel easier and more efficient for anyone who wants to get away for vacation, or learn more of the great things Phoenix has to offer.” Phoenix continues to attract new airline service because we are cost-effective and great partners,” said City of Phoenix Vice Mayor Debra Stark.
