I fly with Calafia frequently, since they´re one of the few airlines with daily flights in and out of La Paz. I find the airline comparable with Volaris in terms of pricing/comfort/available services. My one complaint is that you can't buy tickets at the airport in La Paz, and regardless you're charged a fee for buying them online.

Calafia is close to becoming my favorite airline. The service is impeccable. Although the flight is short, the stop in Guadalajara is 30 minutes and off you go for a quick flight to Puerto Vallarta

I've had the most terrible time with them. I bought a flight through Expedia and later get a call that the payment didn't go through and thank goodness because i accidentally got it for the wrong days. I told him that and he said he would just cancel that fight and he took my information over the phone for a...

When my husband wanted to switch our Aeromexico flights to this small airline I was not thrilled (I hate flying). However, the small airplane we had (sat maybe 20 people?) was incredibly smooth during the air and at takeoff and landing. The staff was delightful and it was an overall great experience. Most efficient way to get between Cabo &...

We saved 50% on airfare flying out of TJ via CBX San Diego compared to flying out of LAX with Alaska. The flight was smooth and fast. We bought CBX so the customs inspection was very easy. Used the money we saved on food and whale watching tours. Service was professional and the flight experience is very good because they...

On- time - nice clean plane and friendly employees. It was not a long flight - so we did not have food or drinks, but they were available.

Calafia Airlines is our first choice for flying to Loreto. The times of the flights work very well with our travel preferences.

Wife and I have flown Calafia Airlines on two roundtrips to Loreto from Tijuana airport. Both trips have gone very well and we were impressed with both the personnel and the aircraft. The cost of the tix was a big factor, they are very reasonable airfares. While not fancy, the aircraft are clean and look to be well-maintained. The flight...

My flight between La Paz and Loreto couldn't have been better - safety #1, clean, comfortable aircraft, easy check in process - US airlines should run so smoothly!

This is the worst experience I have ever had with an airline. In July of 2017 my wife and I had our wedding in Loreto, BCS, Mexico. We arranged our family's flights in and out of Loreto on Calafia Airlines. Two days before the return flight from Loreto to Tijuana, I was informed that the flight was delayed several hours....
