Cancun, Q.R. — Mexico’s Volaris says they are adding two new direct routes to Cancun International starting April. The airline reported connecting the Mexican cities of Morelia and Culiacán to the city of Cancun.
The low-cost airline said they are committed to airports that decentralize operations in CDMX and encourage demand in destinations with great growth potential. The two new routes will each fly three times a week.
The Cancun-Culiacán (Sinaloa) route will begin April 1, and will fly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays leaving the Mexican Caribbean at 12:58 p.m. and arriving in the capital of Sinaloa at 3:16 p.m. The return will be at 4:01 p.m. to land in Cancun at 8:09 p.m.
The Cancun-Morelia flight will start on April 2, taking off at 12:58 and arriving at 15:51. The return flight will leave the capital of Michoacán at 4:21 p.m. and will land at 7:01 p.m. It will be the first time that Morelia, the capital city of the state of Michoacán, will be connected to Cancun.
Volaris said the Morelia route was created due to a high demand from state locals to travel to Cancun.
Regarding the Sinaloa market, Volaris said they see the potential of more than three million travelers from the state which would allow them to increase air connectivity with direct routes to vacation destinations.
“We remain committed to expanding air connectivity in Mexico with our point-to-point network, supporting economic reactivation through tourism with new routes that increase supply in key destinations for the country, such as Cancun, where we are the main operator with more than 26 million passengers since 2006”, said Omar Carrera, Mr. Commercial Director of Volaris.
