Volaris may launch flights to Chihuahua, Guadalajara from Denver
Mexican carrier Volaris Airlines has indicated that it is planning to launch nonstop flights to Chihuahua and Guadalajara from Denver. The airline said that it has already applied to the federal government for launching nonstop flights to these two destinations from Denver International Airport.
The airline said that if these routes are finally approved then this would be the first direct connections between the Mile High City and the Mexican cities of Guadalajara and Chihuahua. Volaris Airlines said that it has filed the paperwork with the U.S. Department of Transportation in September this year.
Volaris Airlines started operating nonstop flights between Mexico City and Denver International Airport in December last year. The airline is hoping for DOT approval to fly the Guadalajara and Chihuahua routes. According to the airline, if the two routes are finally approved then they will be able to expand the number of direct destinations from Denver to Mexico from the existing six to eight. The direct links to the two routes would also prove beneficial for the large number of immigrants who have come to Colorado from Mexico for job.
Volaris Airlines is a relatively new airline, which was launched in 2006 in the city of Toluca. The airline’s main aim is to provide low-cost service, largely within Mexico. Presently, apart from Mexico City, the other Mexican cities being served with nonstop flights to Denver International Airport include Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Cozumel and Cancun.
