Denver International Airport (DIA) recently announced that Volaris will begin year-round nonstop service from Denver International Airport to Benito Juárez International Airport in Mexico City beginning in December 2012.
The airport initiated conversations with Volaris in 2009 after the carrier announced its partnership with Southwest Airlines. Mexico City was ranked as Denver’s second-largest international market without year-round service behind San Jose, Costa Rica.
“Expanding air service continues to be a top priority for us, so we are pleased and grateful to welcome Volaris to Denver,” said Kim Day, Manager of Aviation for Denver International Airport. “Every new destination we add strengthens our overall network. That in turn helps us to land the next carrier or city; our robust network grows here again today. For our passengers, this should be a welcome new offering of a low-cost year-round option between Denver and Mexico City.”
The flight is now available for sale for travel beginning December 8, 2012. Volaris will operate the flight with the 144-seat Airbus A319 twice-weekly from December through April and once-weekly from May through November. The aircraft will arrive in Denver at 3:05 p.m. and depart to Mexico City at 4:25 p.m.
