Volaris ventures into Puerto Rico

Volaris launched its first ever flights to San Juan in Puerto Rico on 2 July, from Cancun. Flights will operate twice-weekly and will bring the number of destinations served from Cancun this summer to 20, five more than last summer. Taking part in the handover of a plaque from the airport to the airline were: David E. Bernier Rivera, Secretary of State of Puerto Rico; Agustín Arellano, President & CEO, Aerostar Airport Holdings; the inaugural crew; José Luis Suárez, Volaris Customer Service and Sales Director; and Ingrid Rivera, Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. There was also a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the apron while entertainment was provided by some Puerto Rican musicians. On arrival in San Juan the flight crew draped flags out of the cockpit windows.

  • Volaris has added another destination to its growing international network. On 2 July the Mexican LCC began twice-weekly flights (Thursdays and Sundays) on the 2,200-kilometre route between Cancun (CUN) and San Juan (SJU) in Puerto Rico using its A320s. This is the airline’s first route to Puerto Rico. No other carrier operates between these two airports. This summer, Volaris will serve 20 destinations from Cancun (up from 15 last summer), of which five are to non-Mexican destinations. Domestic routes to Hermosillo and Morelia have been dropped, replaced by Tuxtla Gutierrez and Villahermosa. Five international routes have been launched to Indianapolis, Las Vegas and Newark in the US, Guatemala City and now San Juan.
