“On Saturday, we announced the continued fortification of the economic bridge between Phoenix and Mexico and the strengthening of our city's relationship with Volaris Airlines.  In addition to the direct flights to Guadalajara, Mexico, which began last week, Volaris also will offer daily direct flights to Mexico City, beginning Dec. 4. This relationship is the beginning of great things, and would not exist without the dedication of Team Phoenix, made up of the city's Aviation and Community and Economic Development departments and the City Manager's Office.  These successes represent three years of hard work and will benefit the people of Phoenix and our economy.  While visiting Guadalajara, Mexico, I learned about free WiFi offered in the city’s downtown.  I hope to bring this amenity to Downtown. Phoenix.  And that is just one innovative idea and I know there will be many more as we continue to explore other opportunities in Mexico."
