Toluca, State of Mexico — Flights from the Toluca International Airport in the State of Mexico have resumed into Cancun International. On Friday, the Toluca International Airport reactivated its Cancun-bound flights with Volaris and shortly, with VivaAerobus.
The airport, which is located in the State of Mexico, is scheduling a near-equivalent operation flight route to that of the newly opened AIFA. On Friday, flights from Toluca flew to Huatulco, Guadalajara, Tijuana, San José del Cabo, Puerto Vallarta and Cancún.
The first flight out of the Toluca airport was to Puerto Vallarta with Volaris.
“Toluca International Airport is reactivated with Volaris operations and shortly Viva Aerobús,” published Laura González, president of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE) of the State of Mexico on social media.
Last week, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that past administrations, in order to justify the construction of the Texcoco Airport, saturated the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) and paralyzed Toluca.
“The saturation itself, which was done to justify the construction of the Texcoco Airport, practically paralyzed the Toluca Airport and saturated the Mexico City Airport just to justify that the construction of the airport in Texcoco was necessary,” he said.
On May 24, the CEO of Volaris, Enrique Beltranena, announced that the airline would open another six routes from the Toluca International Airport upon presenting its new operating strategy in the Valley of Mexico.
He said that for Volaris, air safety is fundamental and for this reason, they decided to change their route network system that ensures a balanced growth of complementary airports to avoid saturation in the AICM.
Volaris will operate around 1,300 flights each week at the Mexico City International Airport, 140 at the Felipe Ángeles International Airport and more than 100 at the Toluca International Airport.
The CEO of Volaris stressed that by simultaneously operating the three airports, the airline will be able offer around one million seats per month on its domestic and international routes.
