Volaris filed an application to operate a route from Mexico City to Bogota (with four weekly frequencies) and Medellin (with two weekly frequencies), and another from Cancun to Bogota (with three weekly frequencies) and Medellin (with two weekly frequencies).

Viva Aerobus is seeking the authority’s approval to operate between Mexico City and Bogota with seven weekly frequencies.

On February 25, the applications of both airlines will be evaluated in a virtual public hearing.
