Volaris now serves Oakland from three Mexican airports
Volaris added two new low-frequency routes to its network last week. On Wednesday 5 November it began weekly (Wednesdays) flights on the 2,725-kilometre sector from Leon (BJX) to Oakland, CA (OAK) using its A319s. No other carrier operates this route. This is Volaris’ third route to the Californian city, as it already flies daily from Guadalajara and twice-weekly from Morelia, a service that started last week. Volaris has served Oakland since July 2009. The following day a new weekly (Thursdays) service was added between Tijuana (TIJ) and Merida (MID). The 2,995-kilometre sector will be flown uncontested by the carrier’s 144-seat A319s.
