Viva Aerobús will operate new national routes

Mexico City.- Given the growing demand and the need for accessible air connections to a larger number of destinations, Viva Aerobus has announced that it will operate the routes between Mexico City-Culiacán and Mérida-Villahermosa; as well as by season that of Monterrey-Los Angeles and Puebla-Tuxtla Gutiérrez.

"These announcements are an important step in our growth and we are happy to initiate so many airlifts that they are not only distinguished by their low prices, they offer a service focused on the customer and the experience of flying in one of the youngest fleets in the world, which makes us the best option to fly, "said airline director Juan Carlos Zuazua.

He explained that the Mexico City-Culiacán route starts on December 13 with flights with four flights a week; and Mérida-Villahermosa on December 15 with two frequencies per week.

While the seasonal routes, designed to meet the needs of passengers at the end of the year, start off on a really cheap offer on December 13, with two flights a week.

In that sense, Monterrey-Los Angeles will be available until January 2, 2019 and Puebla-Tuxtla Gutiérrez until January 3, he said in a statement.

With these destinations, Viva Aerobus consolidates and strengthens itself as the operator offering the most destinations from the following cities: Monterrey with 31 destinations; Mérida, Villahermosa, Tuxtla and Culiacán with six and Puebla with five.

"These releases are a win-win for all, giving new flight options to passengers, encouraging tourism and economic spillover in the destinations concerned, as well as promoting competitiveness in the Mexican aviation sector," said the director.

In addition, in line with this expansion strategy, Viva Aerobus celebrated the recent arrival of its new Airbus A320neo, which will support the operation of the launched routes.

In this way, Viva's fleet consists of 27 aircraft: 22 Airbus A320ceo and 5 Airbus A320neo.

"It was a positive year for Viva Aerobus, and in the first eight months of the year we reported an increase of 22 percent of passengers compared to 2017. This growth is further enhanced by the new flights, which add up to 98 routes, of which 19 started in 2018, "he concluded.
