New opportunities in Mexico

In Mexico after the inaugural Virgin Atlantic flight from London to Cancun.
We’ve had lots of customers asking us to fly to Cancun over the years and being here, I can see why. We’re enjoying the stunning white sand beaches, meeting some wonderful people and looking forward to some exciting diving later this week.
It would be great if everyone had the opportunity to visit this beautiful country. However, Mexico isn’t just about holidays. With the second-largest economy in Latin America and a newly elected President calling for reforms on issues like the war on drugs and the economy, Mexico is also an increasingly important country for business.
We should be encouraging businesses and entrepreneurs to seek out new opportunities as well as helping families take well-deserved holidays. UK Air Passenger Duty should be designed to help even more people make the trip, but at the moment it is restricting people with sky-high costs. Have a look at www.afairtaxonflying.org to find out more.
Will keep you posted on more fun in Mexico in the next few days.
