As a response to the growing number of domestic travelers choosing the Mexican Caribbean, the ultra-low-cost airline announced that it will add two new routes to Cancun.

Volaris is seeking to decentralize operations from Mexico’s capital city and encourage demand in destinations with great growth potential.

According to a press release, flights between Cancun (CUN) and Morelia (MLM) will begin on April 2 with weekly flights. The company has been operating in Morelia since 2007, where it has carried almost 5 million travelers and currently offers some 110 flights a week. It has two domestic and seven international destinations: Mexicali (MXL) and Tijuana (TIJ) in Mexico; and Chicago/Midway (MDW), Chicago/O’Hare (ORD), Fresno (FAT), Oakland (OAK), and San Jose (SJC) in the United States.

Also with 3 weekly services, it will operate exclusively the Culiacan (CUL) and Cancun (CUN) route as of April 1, thus covering a potential market of more than 3 million people, with the objective of Sinaloa continuing to increase its air connectivity with direct routes to the main vacation destinations.
