Los Cabos New Airport Seating. Late September, 2014 San José del Cabo at the foot of Mexico suffered irrefutable damage from Hurricane Odile. The hurricane winds at 125 mph left parts of Los Cabos severely wounded, forcing the evacuation of about 30,000 residents. Heavy winds tore off the roof of one airport terminal, shattered countless windows, flooded the desert with rain and high tides and scattered red roof tiles along the 18-mile tourist hotel corridor along the touristy stretch of resorts and white sandy beaches.

Mexico’s Los Cabos International Airport suffered irrefutable damage from hurricane Odile.
International flights didn’t resume until Oct. 8, 2014. Many of the area’s most luxurious hotels were closed for months, including Esperanza, One & Only Palmilla and Las Ventanas al Paraíso.
Arconas’ client, Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico (GAP) worked hand-in-hand with airport operators to repair the terminal damage and bring it back to full operation in little over 4 weeks after the hurricane took place. Flyaway airport seating was installed at the terminal gates and is upholstered in a rusty red tone, complementing Mexico’s natural landscape. The airport seats are also equipped with inPower Flex that provides seat-side charging convenience for passenger’s.
