Fly Virgin America's New Puerto Vallarta Route, Save a Chihuahua

August 30, 2011 at 11:04 AM | by | ()

You know when it's officially almost autumn? When airlines begin to announce new warm-weather destinations, and among the more exciting ones coming up are Virgin America's roundtrips between San Francisco or Seattle and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Not only do we feel a little something something when Virgin America announces any new route, but a fresh international destination like Puerto Vallarta means several fun things: that VX continues to stretch their map further, that low fares from the west coast to popular vacation destinations are assured and that it's another opportunity for Sir Richard Branson to dress up, although we kind of think he could be busy rebuilding Necker Island all winter.

So here's the deal: Book SFO-PVR or SEA-PVR by September 1 and lock down fares of $129 each way for most flights between December 2 and March 14.

But that's not all! Book any of their other existing routes before September 1 and score lower fares as well, from $49 each way. Check out all of those options here.

Perhaps our favorite part of this whole thing is the charity component: Virgin America will sponsor the rescue of one chihuahua for each flight booked during this sale. It only takes $25 to do so, and VX will donate $25 to San Francisco Animal Care and Control to help the doggies secure new homes.

This isn't the first time Virgin has done something for chihuahuas either; VX has a big place in their heart for the itty-bitty pups and they've been flying them from west coast to east to families waiting for new pets to love.

Okay now we're going to spend an hour staring at the chihuahua in the taco outfit.
