Stocks in this article: VLRS

MEXICO CITY, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Volaris, the airline offering the most attractive fares and promotions in Mexico, announced today the launch of new international service between the cities of Guadalajara, Jalisco, and San Antonio, Texas. Flights will start on December 14.

San Antonio becomes the 27 th destination operated by Volaris from Guadalajara and the 12 th city to be serviced in the U.S., strengthening the carrier's commitment to air connectivity and promoting binational cultural, economic, and commercial exchange. In addition, the new service marks Volaris' incursion into the Texas market, extending its reach within the US.

The new service is part of Volaris' new "Volaris always with you and your budget" (Volaris Siempre Contigo y tu Bolsillo) initiative, which provides travelers with the lowest available fares in the market and includes 25 kg of checked-in luggage. Flights are available for booking at "fares that make you travel", with advance purchase options, as well as the innovative " Tu decides" approach, whereby customers purchase optional products and services they need for their travel, customizing every trip to their needs.

Volaris CEO, Enrique Beltranena, addressed the importance of the market segment targeted by the new flight. "The segment of travelers visiting friends and family between the US and Mexico is the largest of its kind in the world, it is essential to satisfy the demand for this much needed service on both sides of the border, offering flights at outstanding fares and with high services standards." 

Beltranena said that for this reason, the Guadalajara - San Antonio service is of utmost interest to the Guadalajara market, given that Volaris is the only carrier servicing this route. "We seek to consolidate our presence in Guadalajara by extending our destination offering from this city, so our customers no longer have to consider ground transportation options to travel to cities such as San Antonio. Volaris' fares will make them travel," he said. 

Currently, Volaris is the leading airline in Guadalajara with over 40 daily departures. According to the 2011 U.S. Census Bureau, San Antonio, Texas, is the seventh most populated city in the United States with 2.1 million inhabitants, of which 55% are of Mexican origin.

Customers interested in booking travel for the new service, may do so on the following schedule:
