Airline to Expand Operations

The Mexican Volaris announced that next year will turn Costa Rica into its hub, from where it will open flights to South America and will put two or three more aircraft based in the Central American country.

Thursday, November 15, 2018

The representatives of the low-cost airline reported that their plan for 2019 is to start direct flights to South America from Juan Santamaria International Airport and expand from four to seven the number of aircraft departing from Costa Rica.

Regarding the new flights, the airline's commercial director, Manuel Jaquez, said that "... will be direct flights and within the ultra-low-cost segment, so they will not compete with other companies that provide services to South American countries. These are destinations for which there are not currently ultra-low-cost flights."

Jaquez explained to that "... by 2019, they will launch an "aggressive campaign" to invite Costa Ricans to travel at low or affordable prices. "Volaris will always be the lowest cost, but special campaigns will be launched with more promotions appropriate to the local market."
