“The arrival of Volaris is a sign of international confidence in Colombia and of the fact that the economic recovery is progressing steadily.

“In addition to the United States, Colombia is one of the destinations that has more and more connections with Mexico, whether to meet with friends and family, or with the objective of stimulating economic exchange. As the number one airline in Mexico, we recognize the importance of serving this air bridge. We are very excited to reach South America via Colombia,” concluded Miguel Aguiñiga, Volaris’ Director of Market Development.
Volaris has 184 active routes (108 domestic and 76 international) and has transported almost 150 million people since its inception in 2006.
