Viva Aerobus announced four new routes departing from the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) in Mexico City, as well as additional flights for existing routes.
Starting July 2, the carrier will take passengers from AIFA to Hermosillo, Sonora; Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo; and Mazatlán. For the summer season, the airline will open a new route to Puerto Vallarta on July 14.
Viva Aerobus also increased the number of flights for existing routes out of the Mexico City airport, now offering four per week to the cities of Oaxaca and Acapulco.
During the summer, the airline announced it will also offer two daily flights to Tijuana and three daily departures to Cancún. The low-cost carrier will now operate a daily flight instead of the three weekly frequencies it currently runs to Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca.
“We’ve already added eleven routes from the new Mexico City Airport and soon we will operate more than 50 flights a week, thus strengthening the connectivity of the Mexico City metro area, in support of an important government infrastructure and mobility project,” said Viva Aerobus CEO Juan Carlos Zuazua.
He added that the carrier is seeking to open more non-stop flights with new aircraft, offer more convenient schedules, and provide customers with better prices.
Mexican low-cost carrier Volaris was the first airline to begin operating flights from AIFA, but Viva Aerobus followed soon after in May 2022.
