Guadalajara, Jal., October 11, 2012 --- U.S. Consul General Susan Abeyta today participated in a ceremony in which American Airlines presented a visa applicant with two free airline tickets. The applicant was selected at random on World Tourism Day which was celebrated last month.
On World Tourism Day, U.S. Ambassador Anthony Wayne and the Principal Officers and other leaders at the nine visa-issuing Consulates General in Mexico commemorated the adjudication of two million visitor visa applications by the United States Mission to Mexico during the 2012 fiscal year, a nearly 30 percent increase over the previous period.
Consul General Abeyta also noted that U.S. carrier American Airlines was celebrating 70 years of presence in Mexico. During the ticket presentation ceremony, she underscored that tourism has always represented an important exchange between the people of the United States and of Mexico.
