Volaris has announced a new international service between Guadalajara and San Antonio, Texas, scheduled to begin on 14 December.
San Antonio becomes the 27th destination – 12th US city – served by Volaris from Guadalajara. In addition, the new service marks Volaris's incursion into the Texas market, extending its reach within the US.
Volaris CEO, Enrique Beltranena, emphasised the importance of the market segment targeted by the new flights. "The segment of travellers visiting friends and family between the US and Mexico is the largest of its kind in the world. It is essential to satisfy the demand for this much needed service on both sides of the border, offering flights at outstanding fares and with high services standards."
Beltranena added that the Guadalajara–San Antonio service is of utmost interest to the Guadalajara market, given that Volaris is the only airline on the route. "We seek to consolidate our presence in Guadalajara by extending our destination offering from this city, so our customers no longer have to consider ground transportation options to travel to cities such as San Antonio," he said.
Flights will leave Guadalajara on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 11:40, arriving in San Antonio at 13:30. In the opposite direction, flights take off from San Antonio at 14:45 and reach Guadalajara at 16:45. (all times local).
