Low Cost Airline Plans Investments

Volaris Costa Rica announced that in 2019 it plans to launch five new routes and by 2023 it plans to increase its fleet in the country to 22 aircraft.

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Regarding the new routes that the airline will begin to operate this year, representatives of the company did not detail the destinations, as they do not yet have the permissions of the General Directorate of Civil Aviation to make them public.

Regarding the results obtained by the airline of Mexican origin in 2018, Enrique Beltranena, CEO of Volaris, explained to Nacion.com that "... For the company, last year, the increase in oil prices cost about $151 million. We had to make cuts to compensate, up to December 31, in more than 100% of costs we had."

The article adds that "... In Costa Rica, Volaris offers 12 routes with eight destinations in Mexico, the United States and Central America (Guatemala, El Salvador). The airline's main customers are middle and lower-middle class travelers who need to travel to visit family and friends (40%), for tourism (40%), and for work (20%)."
