The Mexican airline Volaris will increase its connections from the international airport of Mérida with four new routes that will start operations in March 2019.
This was announced duing a press conference held at the Mérida International Airport, headed by the Secretary of Tourism Development, Michelle Friedman Hirsch; the regional director of Grupo ASUR, Héctor Navarrete Muñoz; and Volaris Market Development Manager, Miguel Aguiniga Rodríguez, in which they unveiled new routes for 2019.
The new routes announced by the Secretary of Tourism Development, Michelle Friedman Hirsch will connect Mérida with Hermosillo, Tijuana, Chihuahua and Oaxaca, destinations that have great potential to bring visitors to the State and represent an excellent opportunity for the Yucatecans to visit those regions of the north of the country.
Michelle Friedman highlighted the great opportunity to expand trade, manufacturing, agricultural and tourism relations with these cities, but especially the city of Tijuana which is very mobile because it is the largest binational region in the world (Mexico-United States) .
Volaris has become the great ally of the administration of Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal, with the efforts of the head of Sefotur and Grupo ASUR, because it is the fifth route that it has opened in recent months, since on November 20 the Mérida-León flight was inaugurated, which registers good numbers so far.
The Tijuana-Mérida flights will start on Friday, March 1, 2019 and will fly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; while the Tijuana-Mérida will start on March 2 and will depart on Tuesdays and Saturdays; Chihuahua-Mérida starts on Sunday, March 3 and will also fly on Thursdays; and Oaxaca-Mérida will depart on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
