Three carriers on one route? That means lots of competition and lower fares. Ole to that! But still, I would not put fares in the “cheap” category yet.
Virgin’s lowest introductory fare of $258 round trip expands to $368.02 when you add in taxes and fees. And if you are thinking about buzzing down for the super-popular Christmas week in December, fares now stand at $800+ round trip on all three carriers offering nonstops from SFO.
Starting December 2, Virgin will fly down from SFO at 9:30 am and return from PVR at 4:10 pm. (No flights on Mondays or Thursdays.) Flight duration is about 3.5 hours.
