From 15 July, Volaris will introduce thrice-weekly flights (on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays) to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport from Guadalajara as part of its plans for international expansion.
The flights will depart Guadalajara at 17:45, arriving in New York at 23:35. The return is set to leave New York at 01:25 and arrive in Guadalajara at 05:55 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
“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, CEO of Volaris. “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 and this can be achieved with our clean and clear fares, on board one of the youngest fleets in the Americas," Beltranena continued.
Volaris operates 20 international and 18 domestic flights from Guadalajara and has transported 16 million passengers from the city to date, a number on the rise as a result of significant growth in 2014.
