The company inaugurates its exclusive Cancun-Culiacán route, which adds to those recently announced from the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport and Lima, in Peru

Volaris, the Mexican ultra-low-cost airline that operates in Mexico, the United States, Central and South America, inaugurated its new Cancun-Culiacán route with which it will serve a potential market of three million people and increase connectivity from Sinaloa to the main destinations vacation in the country.

“The Mexican Caribbean is now closer to the tourist who wants to discover one of the most diverse destinations in the world through unforgettable experiences that will last forever, since it has unparalleled natural beauty, adventure, activities for the whole family and, of course, Of course, the enigmatic Mayan culture,” commented Darío Flota Ocampo, general director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council.

The bus transfer from Culiacán to Cancún takes an average of 42 hours and costs around $3,600 pesos. With the objective of taking more passengers from the bus to the plane, Volaris strengthens its bus switching strategy by offering simple flights between these destinations starting at $1,310 pesos (taxes included).

“In Mexico, the bus market is three billion passengers a year. If the aviation industry takes just one percent of it, it would double the size of our sector. Hence, our main competition is not another airline, but this market that moves by land. Through various campaigns and joint efforts with the states, we seek to get more people to fly for the first time or to increase the use of the plane as the main means of transportation”, concluded Omar Carrera, Sr. Commercial Director of Volaris.

In addition to this new route, Volaris announced the sale of Cancún–Lima (Peru), which will begin operations in June, and also inaugurated the route from the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport to Cancún. The airline has transported more than 26 million customers in this Caribbean destination, through 19 routes.
