Viva Aerobus

Mexico’s VivaAerobus has added two new routes from Cuernavaca (CVJ) in south-central Mexico. The City of Eternal Spring will be now connected to Cancun (CUN) on the country’s Caribbean coast and Monterrey (MTY) in Mexican north, with twice-weekly flights operating with the airline’s fleet of 737-300s. On the occasion of inaugural, the airline's general manager, Juan Carlos Zuazua stated that, “We are pleased to announce that this new flight linking Monterrey, Cuernavaca will allow passengers to fly directly to these cities at the best market prices.”

This route will also boost tourism and help develop businesses in these cities. General manager Juan also added that, “VivaAerobus is strengthening connectivity in Monterrey, betting on the new flight which undoubtedly contributes to the development of tourism in the region, competitiveness and will allow many families and passengers to travel regularly at best market prices.”

The flights have been scheduled to depart from Cuernavaca at 7:50 and 8:05 pm on Monday and Friday, while the return, ie, the destination-Monterrey Cuernavaca is scheduled two days at 15:10 and 15:25 hours respectively.

Zuazua stressed that a major expectation is that the addition of these routes will cater to about 24,000 passengers in the year and generate around 24 million pesos a year. Currently VivaAerobus operates a fleet of 18 Boeing 737-300 aircrafts in a total of 51 domestic routes and 3 in the U.S.
