Volaris launches two low-frequency transborder services to the US
- Volaris added two new routes to its quickly expanding network from Mexico to the US. On 2 October, weekly services from Uruapan (UPN) in central-western Mexico to Los Angeles, CA (LAX) were launched, becoming the airline’s seventh route to the Californian city. On the following day, flights on the 2,700-kilometre route from Guanajuato (BJX) to Chicago Midway, IL (MDW) commenced with also weekly frequencies. Volaris already serves Midway from four other destinations across Mexico. Both new routes are operated with A319s and are free of direct competition.
