Ultra low cost Mexican airline Volaris announced today a nonstop flight to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport from Guadalajara, starting July 15, 2015.
Volaris continues to consolidate international expansion efforts, with new service that allows Mexicans particularly Jalisco residents, to visit family and friends living in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the United States and the headquarters of major industries and businesses, the largest regional economy in the United States and the world’s second largest urban economy.
“Just as Frank Sinatra said in his most famous song, we want our customers to live the experience of the city that never sleeps, which is why we are so excited to now offer this new nonstop flight consolidating our position as the Mexican carrier with the widest route network,” stated Enrique Beltranena, Volaris Chief Executive Officer.
“There’s no better way to achieve this than with service connecting Mexico’s Perla Tapatia with The Big Apple.”
“We can’t say enough of a city with such a high tourism profile that is sure to delight our Guadalajara customer base, from its beautiful high-rises, Broadway productions, and museums, to its amazing parks, wide array of stores, and everything else the city has to offer tourists. Let’s not forget a visit to New York City isn’t complete without a tour of the Statue of Liberty, and this can all be achieved with our clean and clear fares, on board one of the youngest fleets in the Americas,” Beltranena added.
Volaris has consolidated as the carrier with the greatest international connectivity from Guadalajara, where it now operates 20 international and 18 domestic flights, and to date has transported 16 million passengers, a number on the rise as a result of significant growth achieved by the carrier out of this city in 2014.
