Supported by this fleet expansion, the company is responding to sustained passenger growth and its route expansion strategy. This year, the company has added two new routes to its schedule: Cancun (CUN) – Quito (UIO) and Monterrey (MTY) – Bogota (BOG).

Also, the service between Tijuana (TIJ) and Felipe Angeles Airport (NLU) has been changed from seasonal to year-round operation. The reactivation of the Monterrey (MTY) – Mexicali (MXL) route and the increase of operations between Guadalajara (GDL) and Puerto Vallarta (PVR) are two high points of Viva’s 2023.
