CANCUN — With 180 passengers aboard, Volaris Airlines started direct route service from San Jose, Costa Rica to Cancun, Thursday Sept. 10 with flight Y4311.
“The development of a new commercial flight began 90 days ago with a fare that, like all of the airline´s fares, allows more people to visit their families. With this new route, Volaris closes this year’s international expansion,” said a statement from Volaris office in Mexico City.
2015 has been a very productive year for Volaris, mainly in the Mexican Caribbean, with two new domestic flights to Villahermosa, Tabasco and Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, while it also began three international routes: first Guatemala, then San Juan, Puerto Rico and now San Jose, Costa Rica.
The inaugural flight from San Jose, Costa Rica left the Juan Santamaria International Airport at 11:25 a.m. and landed in Cancun at 2:40 p.m.; travel time is about two hours, but it takes into account the time difference between Mexico and Costa Rica.
“The airline has launched this year three international routes from Cancun to the Caribbean and Central America, which will increase these markets,” said Cancun´s Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).
Air connectivity is the goal, with the main cities of America and Europe, where major markets of the Mexican Caribbean tourism are located.
“The new flights are encouraging regional tourism in the Caribbean and Central America, which will grow the Mundo Maya segment,” said Francisco Lopez Reyes, director of tourism for Benito Juarez municipality in Cancun.
In 2015, Cancun has witnessed Volaris starting new international flights to and from Cancun and within the country, mainly from the south-southeast of Mexico. Volaris´ flights are expanding air links, along with new service offered by other foreign airlines that are committed to the region, the official said.
