OMA, Nuevo Leon’s Ministry of Tourism and Volaris announced the opening of four new routes from the Monterrey Airport to four destinations in Mexico: Tapachula, Puerto Escondido, Culiacan and La Paz. The four routes are part of the 40 new connections that Volaris has added to its network, which aims to connect business and leisure cities. 

The opening of these routes aims to strengthen Nuevo Leon’s connectivity by providing passengers with more flight options, which seek to promote tourism and economic development in Mexico, according to an OMA press release. 

The flight to Culiacan will depart daily from the Monterrey Airport, while the route to La Paz will open twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays. The direct route to Puerto Escondido will operate on Sundays and the flight to Tapachula will depart on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

"We are delighted to announce four new routes in Monterrey. This boost to the expansion of air connectivity in Nuevo Leon, with various destinations across the country, promises to open up more possibilities for the state's residents and tourists looking to enjoy its attractions, as well as those with business objectives in the region. This is in line with our commitment to continue promoting economic, tourist and commercial development in our country," said Holger Blankenstein, Executive Vice President, Volaris.

"More and more destinations are being added to the offering of Monterrey International Airport. The Ministry of Tourism is working on very specific promotion and destination development strategies that will undoubtedly boost the entire industry. Excellent news for Volaris, I am sure it will be a success," added Maricarmen Martínez Villarreal, Minister of Tourism, Nuevo Leon.

Ricardo Dueñas, CEO, OMA, explained that the company is seeking to promote efficient mobility from its airports and will continue to seize expansion opportunities while strengthening air connectivity and economic development in the region in collaboration with airlines and entities to enhance the travel experience.

Viva Aerobus also announced new flights and will now fly from Mexicali, Baja California, to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. The Mexican ultra-low-cost airline also announced two flights from Tijuana, Baja California, to Oaxaca, Oaxaca, and Reynosa, Tamaulipas.

Baja California's Ministry of Tourism, Viva Aerobus and Pacific Airport Group (GAP) explained that they seek to boost air connectivity through these new routes, with the Viva Aerobus flight from Monterrey to Mexicali landing at the General Rodolfo Sánchez Taboada International Airport with six weekly flights, as reported by MBN.
