Volaris’ first service between Cancun and Guatemala was operated by a specially branded A320 promoting the Mexican LCC’s newest destination. Service to Guatemala was also started on the same day (18 June) from Guadalajara. Both routes will be operated twice-weekly with a mix of the airline’s A319s and A320s.
- Volaris has added a new country to its route map with the launch on 18 June of services to Guatemala City (GUA) in Guatemala. The city will be served twice-weekly from both Cancun (CUN) and Guadalajara (GDL). Neither the 813-kilometre route from Cancun, nor the 1,505-kilometre route from Guadalajara is served by any other carrier. According to Enrique Beltranena, CEO, Volaris: “Guatemala becomes our first incursion into the Central American market. This is how we underscore our carrier’s solid growth and our ongoing commitment to our customers, of providing the best air connectivity at the lowest fares in the market. We detected a great opportunity in the Central American market to expand air connectivity to and from Mexico, at very low fares and the youngest fleet in the Americas, made up of 53 Airbus A320s.” Two new domestic routes were also launched on 22 June from Cancun to Tuxtla Gutierrez (TGZ) and Villahermosa (VSA). Both of these routes will be flown twice-weekly by the airline and face competition from VivaAerobus which operates both routes with four weekly flights.
