Volaris today consolidates their presence in the Texan marketplace with the introduction of new international service connecting Guadalajara, Jalisco with Dallas, Texas, effective April 29.
The announcement underscores the airline’s position as the Mexican carrier with the highest total of routes in Mexico and the US, now offering 138 routes to 59 destinations, of which 21 are international flights and 38 domestic. In addition, Volaris reports transporting over 49 million passengers since it was inaugurated. Of these, 7 million have been to US cities, and this number continues on the rise as a result of an average 230 daily operations.
The carrier’s Chief Commercial Officer, Holger Blankenstein, spoke of the importance of entering the Dallas market, “We are extremely excited to forge ahead with our expansion into the US via its most important cities, and that is the case of Dallas- Fort Worth, through its major cities such as Dallas and Fort Worth, region where now we give connectivity to all Mexicans who visit family and friends in Mexico with clean fares.”
“Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport welcomes Volaris as our newest airline partner,” said John Ackerman, Executive Vice President of Global Strategy and Development at Dallas- Fort Worth International Airport.
“Mexico is a vital trade partner with Texas with more than 190 billion dollars in exports and imports combined. Texas generates more trade with Mexico than any other U.S. state, and represents 40 percent of Dallas Fort Worth’s international traffic. The new service increases travel options for all customers to Mexico and will support more growth of the leisure travel market between Guadalajara and North Texas.”
