Viva Aerobus boosts international connectivity with its new route Mexico City – New York

Published Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Mexico City, October 16, 2018.- At press conference, Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus and Rodrigo Medina, PR & Marketing Director of NYC & Company, celebrated today the strengthening of commercial and tourist relations between Mexico and the United States provided by the new route Mexico City - New York, belonging to Mexico´s ultra-low-cost airline.

The route will start operations on October 18 with a daily flight. This expansion in Viva's offer responds to the airline's commitment to promote accessible connectivity with a proposal that combines the value of a customer-focused service and low prices. Viva Aerobus will offer more than 135 thousand seats in the first year of operation of the route, at prices that start from $ 103 USD (single trip).

"We have built a new bridge that brings these important cities closer than ever before. Our prices open the doors to a growing number of visitors in both directions. This is synonymous of tourist and economic boost that endorses us as allies of the industry and the country", said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus.

It is the second international route of Viva Aerobus from Mexico City, launched less than a year after having announced Mexico City - Las Vegas. This is the result of a sustained and accelerated growth of the company, backed by the preference of its customers.

According to Zuazua, this preference results from an intelligent alternative that empowers passengers. By having the opportunity to personalize every flight, according to passengers’ needs and added to the most competitive prices, travelers save money on their transportation and get the opportunity to travel more frequently, extend their stay or get more activities in their destination.

"In addition, with us, passengers enjoy the comfort, security and confidence that one of the youngest and newest fleets in Latin America provides. Innovation and technology are the DNA of our airplanes", mentioned Viva Aerobus CEO.

In his speech, Rodrigo Medina, PR & Marketing Director of NYC & Company, welcomed this new connection that lands at the John F. Kennedy Airport. "We are very excited with the arrival of Viva Aerobus to the 'Big Apple', as its offer makes New York even more accessible for all Mexicans."

The start of this new route leads Viva Aerobus towards a successful 12th anniversary to be held in November, characterized by a year of unprecedented achievements.

"Only this 2018, we have realized our second most important aircraft acquisition; we exceeded an offer of 100 routes; we started connecting flights service and we are about to arrive, for the first time in our history, at 10 million passengers in a single year. We are very satisfied with our results and we will continue to work so that flying becomes a reality within everyone's reach", concluded Zuazua.
