This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from both Tijuana and Guadalajara in Mexico. We’ll be profiling one of the largest airlines in Mexico—an airline that flies to many U.S. cities and one that is probably not on your radar: Volaris. We’ll also talk about HOW they fly. Plus, we’ll discuss the cross border express, an innovative bridge between San Diego and the Tijuana airport. Joining me will be Governor Francisco Vega de Lamadrid of Baja to discuss the impact of the bridge, not to mention the soaring business in Baja California wine (hint: most of it is exported to…France!). Enrique Beltranena, CEO of Volaris, will discuss the dynamic of Mexican travel and the country’s huge bus network, and how his airline matched bus fares and now flies to underserved airports in both Mexico and the U.S. We’ll also discuss the history of mural art in Guadalajara, and Expedia’s Courtney Scott, talks about the recent—and perhaps surprising—research about how much vacation time Americans are leaving on the table. Peter also talks about global uncertainty, the Trump election, Brexit, and the power of the U.S. dollar against the British pound. There is an unprecedented worldwide buyers market for travelers. There’s all of this and more when the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show reports from the cross border express and flies between Tijuana, Guadalajara, and the U.S.
