Volaris, the low cost airline with a route network that is geared towards servicing the US and Mexico markets, announced this week the launch of new international service connecting the city of Guadalajara with Houston, Texas effective March 23, 2015 and scheduled to operate Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
“We are extremely pleased to increase our international destination offering to a city of the caliber of Houston, which now becomes our second incursion into the Texas market”, said Enrique Beltranena, Volaris CEO. “We are ready to offer new and unique travel experiences to our Customers in the Guadalajara marketplace”, he added.
Beltranena said, “Volaris is fully committed to providing a wider international flight offering to Mexico’s Perla Tapatía region, as Guadalajara is commonly referred to, and where we now currently operate 18 international and 36 domestic destinations with an average 200 flights per week, which positions us as clear leaders in terms of routes, flights, and seats”.
The carrier’s CEO echoed that the new flight reinforces their expansion into the US market. “Volaris seeks to unite family and friends on both sides of the border, on one of the youngest fleets operating in the Americas. We are the Mexican airline with the greatest number of destinations reached and flights to the US, plus to date we have transported over 6.5 million passengers between Mexico and the US since we started operations, a number that is on the rise thanks to our growth efforts in 2014 and our expansion plans for the upcoming year”.
Houston Aviation Director Mario C. Diaz said: “Passengers at George Bush Intercontinental continue to enjoy an unprecedented level of connectivity with Latin America and new partners like Volaris are helping to make that connection even stronger. This new non-stop service complements the continued expansion of the international service available at IAH and will provide Volaris’ Customers with even better access to our dynamic, growing city and all that it offers”.
