VivaAerobus adds trio of routes from Guadalajara and Monterrey
VivaAerobus has elected to start three new domestic routes on the same day this week (2 September), two from its focus city of Guadalajara (GDL), operating to Reynosa (REX) and Torreon (TRC), while its Monterrey (MTY) hub will benefit from an additional connection to Queretaro (QRO). All flights will be flown twice-weekly by its 148-seat 737-300 aircraft (Mondays and Fridays). Regional brand Aeromexico Connect provides the only competition on two of the three routes, serving Guadalajara to Torreon (six times weekly) and Monterrey to Queretaro (18). VivaAerobus previously operated flights connecting Monterrey and Queretaro between 1 January 2007 and 22 May 2008. The airline now serves 13 domestic destinations from Guadalajara. Guadalajara Airport is also a focus article in this week’s newsletter.
