Mexico City; December 6, 2017.- Hugh Sinnock, Vice President of Customer Experience for Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, and Juan Carlos Zuazua, general director of Viva Aerobus, announced the economic, touristic and connectivity boost that the new direct route Mexico-Las Vegas will offer.
It is the first international route that Viva Aerobus launches from Mexico City, which reaffirms the airline´s commitment to drive connectivity to more and more destinations based on a real low-cost option and it is expected to transport more than 100 thousand passengers per year. Flights begin operations on December 16 with a daily frequency and prices starting from USD $114.
This new route is a result of Viva Aerobus strategy focused on customers. “Each new route is backed by the deep knowledge we have of our passengers. Our vocation is to satisfy their needs and preferences. Thus, we know how and where they want to travel and Mexico is the second most important international market for Las Vegas”, said Juan Carlos Zuazua.
"We are excited to see that our alliances with airlines continue to expand, achieving greater nonstop options for Mexicans," said Hugh Sinnock, VP of Customer Experience for LVCVA. "With Viva Aerobus's new daily route, we anticipate close to $ 78 million in annual economic impact. More than 1.2 million Mexican travelers visit Las Vegas every year, and this new service offers continued growth to help us achieve our goal of increasing international visits over the next decade", he concluded.
In words of Juan Carlos Zuazua, this new route is an ally of tourism, business and the growing industry of conventions for both, Mexico and the United States, by connecting the wide cultural offer of Las Vegas, “World Capital of Entertainment”, and Mexico City, the city with most museums in the world.
"With the start of this new route, we close a very successful year for Viva Aerobus. We are very proud to celebrate 11 years of service to Mexico with 23 new routes launched only in 2017, a year that will end with nearly 8 million passengers who gave us their preference and confidence. This will mean an approximate growth of more than 20%. Compared to 2016”, said Zuazua said.
