New low-fare Sacramento-Leon link

As of November 2018, Mexican ultra low-fare airline, Volaris, will offer a twice-weekly nonstop service between Sacramento in California and Leon in Mexico.

Leon is the largest city in the Mexican state of Guanajuato and part of the economic powerhouse microregion of Bajio within the Central Mexican Plateau. Known for its production of high-quality leather goods as well as premier hotels, restaurants and leisure activities, it’s a prime holiday destination for those seeking a winter getaway over the Christmas period.

“The recent announcement that Volaris Airlines will begin a direct service to Leon, Mexico is yet another example of our airport system’s commitment to convenience for the travelling public,” said Sacramento county supervisor, Phil Serna, whose district includes Sacramento International Airport.

He was joined by Mark Haneke, manage of air service development and marketing for the Sacramento County Department of Airports, who said: “We’re thrilled that Volaris is adding a service to Leon, a popular destination among the Hispanic community for visiting friends and relatives.”

The new link will operate from Sacramento to Leon after midnight on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while flights from Leon to Sacramento will operate on Tuesdays and Fridays. The new service will be added to the 39 destinations already served from Sacramento, which currently offers 155 daily nonstop flights on 11 domestic and international carriers.

The regional economic impact of Sacramento County’s airport system is more than $4 billion annually.
