Viva Aerobus, is a low-cost, Mexican airline based in Monterrey International Airport (MTY). The carrier has just added four new routes, which are part of the US expansion plan that it enacted after Mexico returned to the highest FAA safety category (Category 1) last month after two years of being downgraded (more about this here).
Queretaro International Airport (QRO) will see flights to Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) starting on December 2nd (4x weekly) and San Antonio International Airport (SAT) starting on December 2nd (2x weekly). Mérida International Airport (MID) will begin service to Miami International Airport (MIA) on July 2nd (4x weekly) and Orlando International Airport (MCO) on July 1st (3x weekly).
These four routes come on the heels of Viva Aerobus’ other recent announced routes from Monterrey International Airport (MTY). These include:
- Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) (4x weekly; starting in March)
- Denver International Airport (DEN) (2x weekly; starting in January)
- Miami International Airport (MIA) (3x weekly; starting in July)
- Oakland International Airport (OAK) (2x weekly; starting in July)
- Orlando International Airport (MCO) (3x weekly; starting in May)
Anthony’s Take: Viva Aerobus was the first Mexican carrier to add routes since Mexico was returned to the highest FAA safety rating and it continues to add more. Let’s see what Aeromexico and Volaris add in the near term.
