- Volaris continues to expand its network with one new domestic route and one new international route. On 12 December the airline began seasonal (until 16 January) twice-weekly flights (Thursdays and Sundays) between Cancun (CUN) and Mexicali (MXL), a distance of 3,110 kilometres. Mexicali is located adjacent to the US border in the Mexican state of Baja California. The airport handled just over 500,000 passengers in 2012. On 14 December it also launched its first ever flights to San Antonio, TX (SAT) from Guadalajara (GDL). The 1,110-kilometre route will be served twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays) and will compete directly with Interjet’s recently launched twice-weekly flights. San Antonio becomes Volaris’ 12th destination in the US and 10th to be served from Guadalajara, of which six are in California. Both routes are served by a mix of the airline’s A319s and A320s.
