Mexico City, August 22, 2019.- Viva Aerobus, Mexico's ultra-low-cost carrier, reached 100 domestic routes with the announcement of its new regular flights Puerto Vallarta - Tijuana. Tickets for this route, which will begin operations on December 13 with three flights per week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday), are already on sale starting from $1,498 pesos in single flight.
“We are very excited because Viva Aerobus connects two airports of the Pacific Airport Group (GAP): Puerto Vallarta Airport, one of the most important tourist destinations in the country; with Tijuana, a recently remodeled airport that facilitates the northern border crossing through the Cross Border Xpress (CBX). The region benefits from a boost to connectivity, tourism and local economic spill, synonymous with growth and development for both destinations”, said Raúl Revuelta, CEO of the Pacific Airport Group.
With this new route, Viva Aerobus strengthens its presence in these two cities. On the one hand, the airline already offers 10 routes at the Tijuana International Airport, one of its five operational bases, and has positioned itself as the second airline that offers more destinations from this entity. As a matter of fact, this year, Viva has launched 4 new routes in Tijuana. This leadership is supported by a significant increase in passenger preference, with Viva registering a 48% increase in its number of customers in the first six months of the year from / to this city.
Moreover, the airline has now 5 routes from Puerto Vallarta, city where it has also reported a 17% growth in the number of passengers during the first half of the year compared to 2018.
Viva´s expansion has been a constant during 2019, resulting in 23 routes newly integrated into its portfolio so far this year. As a result, the airline has achieved a total of 118 routes: 100 domestic and 18 international.
This uninterrupted expansion of Viva Aerobus, which stimulates demand and market growth, has allowed the airline to achieve several growth records. Viva Aerobus registered in two consecutive months (June and July) more than one million customers and, for the first time in its history, positioned as the second airline with the largest number of passengers nationwide during July*.
“We not only celebrate a milestone for Viva Aerobus with our domestic route number 100, also for the country´s connectivity in direct benefit for all passengers. Guided by our vocation as Mexico´s ambassadors, we have taken another step with the clear objective of offering the widest variety of national routes at unbeatable prices”, said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus.
