Since its inception nine years ago, Volaris has grown faster than any other Mexican carrier when it comes to flights to the U.S. In the fourth quarter of 2014 alone, the carrier launched 24 new domestic and 12 international point-to-point routes. Throughout last year, Volaris opened 36 point-to-point routes, of which 24 were domestic and 12 international.
In 2015, the low-cost carrier’s expansion continues unabated, with its efforts initially focused on Texas, where it currently operates flights out of San Antonio to Guadalajara. This spring, Volaris will add new service from Houston and Dallas to the Mexican city.
On March 23, the low-cost carrier will launch thrice-weekly nonstop service between Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Guadalajara International Airport, followed by service out of Dallas on April 29, which will also operate three times a week.
Since 2006, Volaris has increased its routes from five to 130. Today, the carrier operates more than 239 daily flight segments on routes that connect 38 Mexican cities with 19 in the U.S., including Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento, Oakland, San Jose, Fresno and Ontario, Calif.; Orlando; Las Vegas; Phoenix, Denver; San Antonio and Chicago. Its two primary hubs are Mexico City and Guadalajara.
Over the years, the carrier has carved a reputation for itself for offering highly affordable rates with a young fleet of 50 Airbus aircraft, 18 A319s and 32 A320s.
