Volaris has announced that nine years after having beginning operations, the carrier has now reached the milestone of having carried 50 million customers, of which 43 million travelled on domestic flights and 7 million on international flights.
Volaris says it “fosters connectivity and the development of Mexico’s commercial air transportation industry, targeting customers who would otherwise travel long distances by bus”.
“Today we reached an important milestone, transporting our customer number 50 million, Carmen García González. We are very pleased that our customers have trusted our services and continue to select us as their airline of choice,” remarked José Luis Suarez, the airline’s customer services and sales director. “We thank their ongoing preference and stand by our promise to continue offering the best travel experiences.”
From January until the end of May 2015, Volaris registered 4.4 million reservations, which represented a 17.2% year-on-year increase. The airline operates 140 routes to 62 cities – 39 in Mexico and 23 internationally, and in May 2015 secured a 23.8% market share in terms of domestic passenger transportation and 20.6% in international passenger transportation from Mexico.
“I can say with enormous satisfaction that we are permanently committed to increasing connectivity for our customers through the 140 routes we operate in Mexico, the US and Central America. I firmly believe that this is one of the reasons we reached our historic 50 million passengers milestone, and this is a great gift to us after nine years of working towards providing [customers] with outstanding service and connectivity.”
