Mexico City, January 9, 2018. - Given the growing demand of passengers and attending the need for greater air connectivity, Viva Aerobus, Mexico's ultra-low cost airline, continues to expand its flight offer by integrating the Puebla - Tuxtla Gutierrez route, which was only offered during high season, to its offer of regular flights.

Viva Aerobus will offer passengers more than 38 thousand seats during the first 12 months of operation as a frequent route. Passengers can already buy their tickets at prices starting from $898 pesos in single flight.
"We started the year with good news for the center - southeast connectivity of the country. We will fly regularly between Puebla and Chiapas with the service that defines us in benefit of our passengers: the best price and the newest aircraft", said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus. “We strengthened our presence in both states, being the airline with the largest offer from these cities", he added.
Viva Aerobus flies to 5 destinations from Puebla: Cancun, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Puerto Vallarta and now Tuxtla Gutierrez; and to 6 destinations from Tuxtla Gutiérrez: Cancun, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Merida, Monterrey and Puebla, being the leading operator, in terms of destinations, from these two entities. To achieve these, result of Viva's commitment to improve accessibility in both states, the airline announced during 2018 its new routes from the capital of Puebla to Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta; and, from Tuxtla, it launched last year the new route to Merida.
