Mexico City, México, November 24, 2021. – Viva Aerobus, Mexico's ultra-low-cost carrier, launched today its first two new non-stop services from Felipe Angeles International Airport (AIFA / IATA Airport Code: NLU) in Mexico City to Monterrey and Guadalajara.

Both routes will begin on March 21, 2022, the first day of operations of this new airport. These two non-stop services will offer a daily flight with one-way fares starting at $304 pesos ($19 pesos + $285 of the Airport Departure Fee -TUA). These new non-stop services are additional to those flights that the airline currently offers at the “Benito Juarez” International Airport in Mexico City. The business model of Viva Aerobus allows the airline to operate simultaneously in multiple airports in the same city with point-to-point non-stop services and the lowest fares.

Viva Aerobus has followed up closely the development, certification and studies regarding the operational feasibility and safety at this new airport according to the airline´s purpose of constantly exploring growth opportunities.

Moreover, Viva Aerobus will offer its shuttle service, Viva Bus, for an easier transport of its passengers to the new Felipe Angeles Airport. This exclusive transport service for Viva Aerobus’ passengers will take them from the airport to Mexico City´s North Central Bus Terminal and vice versa. Bus frequencies match flights schedules for the convenience of users. Passengers can purchase this service for $75 pesos on the airline's website, at Viva Stores, at the North Central Bus Terminal or during their flight with the attendant crew.

“Starting our commercial operation at Felipe Angeles Airport meets the growing demand that has been recently registered in greater Mexico City metropolitan area. Viva Aerobus’ commitment is to keep connecting destinations, so more people have the opportunity to access convenient, safe and reliable air transport. We are excited on the opportunity at this region, and we will be able to deliver the best service with the youngest and modern fleet in Mexico and the lowest fares”, said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus.

SEDENA recognized that this decision to grow its flight offer at this new destination reflects Viva´s commitment to air connectivity in Mexico with a clear benefit for travelers.
