Volaris to Launch Los Angeles-Leon Service in June

Underscoring its ongoing commitment to serve Mexico’s Bajío region and the state of California, Volaris said it will launch four weekly flights between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Leon in the state of Guanajuato on June 8.

“We are very pleased to announce new service from Mexico’s Bajío region to Los Angeles, reaffirming our presence throughout the state of California,” said Holger Blankenstein, the airline’s commercial director, adding that the airline has carried more than 2.5 million passengers out of LAX on 70 weekly flights. “We service 136 routes to 59 outstanding destinations on both sides of the border, and from Leon we operate 40 flights per week, reiterating our commitment to providing this iconic city with greater domestic and international connectivity.”

Since its inception nine years ago, Volaris has grown faster than any other Mexican carrier when it comes to flights to the U.S. That expansion continues unabated. On March 23, the low-cost carrier launched thrice-weekly nonstop service between Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport and Guadalajara International Airport. On April, it will inaugurate service out of Dallas, which will also operate three times a week.

Currently, Volaris operates more than 230 daily flight segments on routes connecting 38 cities in Mexico with 21 cities in the U.S.
