Vegas.com, a privately owned destination site, has entered into a joint venture with Mexico.com to run the site's operations and marketing with the intention of bolstering tourism to Mexico.

The Mexico travel site relaunched today and features air-hotel packages, hotels, cruises, tours, attractions and advice for travelers.

"We're going to bring the expertise, technology and attention to the customer that we've mastered in Vegas to Mexico.com," said Howard Lefkowitz, Vegas.com's president.

Travis Christ, US Airways' vice president of marketing, said, "We've worked with Vegas.com for a long time and have seen significant growth as a result of our partnership. US Airways is already one of the largest carriers from the U.S. to Mexico, and we know that our market share will only increase when Vegas.com does for Mexico what it did for Las Vegas."

Rami Schwartz, founder of Mexico.com, will remain active in the company as a member of the board.

Vegas.com's platform and efforts are supported by 500 staff members, including bilingual customer service in English and Spanish.
