Mexicana Introduces Medical/Airfare Packages

An airline teams up with a hospital to create a travel package? That's right, folks! I know a few families in Mexico that go to Texas or where ever in the US a few times a year just to go to the doctor. Someone finally decided to capitalize on that!

The whole article, since it's a short one, via El Universal:
Mexicana airlines and a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, announced Thursday new medical vacation packages for Mexicans that include airfare, hotels and an exam by U.S. doctors. The packages, sponsored by San Antonio's Methodist Healthcare System, will go on sale Monday. Three physician groups in San Antonio are participating. The packages also include options like referrals for a specialist or help purchasing tickets to a show or amusement park.

I guess the grass is always greener, huh? The Mexicans I knew that went to the us were probably more focused on specialists, but sometimes I think they look to the US to be superior in those things in general. Just like Americans probably do a ton of shopping when they go to Mexico, Mexicans come home with carloads of stuff from the US.

Very interesting! What I definitely see is that Mexicana is expanding in the US market; starting this December they will have a daily flight from Baltimore (BWI) to Mexico City. They will now serve the greater DC area market.

Greetings from the DC area to my dear friends in Miami!!

Congrats on your blogs!
