- Volaris has added a new US destination from its Monterrey (MTY) hub, with the launch on 1 December of twice-weekly flights on the 1,621-kilometre route to Denver (DEN) in Colorado. Volaris already serves Denver from Chihuahua, Guadalajara and Mexico City. This new service appears to replace the twice-weekly service to Dallas/Fort Worth which was suspended on 29 November. The Denver route is not served by any other carrier. Denver Airport CEO Kim Day, said: “The addition of a new destination to Denver’s growing portfolio of non-stop services is very exciting. Volaris has contributed significantly to the growth in international passenger traffic at Denver since starting service in 2012. They are now the only airline to serve the three largest cities in Mexico – Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey – non-stop from Denver.” Volaris already serves Chicago O’Hare year-round from Monterrey, a route it started back in June of this year. Denver is now connected non-stop to seven destinations in Mexico by a variety of carriers with Monterrey joining Cancún, Chihuahua, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta and San Jose del Cabo.
