As the Latin American aerospace industry seeks for different strategies to recover from the COVID-19 crisis, Viva Aerobus and Viva Air reach first-of-its-kind agreement to offer more flight options connecting Mexico and Colombia.

“With this agreement, passengers can purchase tickets to fly the Bogota-Mexico City route from their website or applications of either of the two airlines with access to the itineraries of both Viva (Air) and Viva Aerobus and thus combine their route with the more convenient option,” reads a press release from Viva Aerobus.

The alliance will provide more scheduling options that will benefit both passengers and airlines. This agreement also focuses on improving biosecurity, punctuality, customer focus, low prices and flights. Both airlines already provide economical options, Viva Air has a Base Fare and Viva Aerobus with a Zero Fare. The combination of these two possibilities will allow passengers to add additional flight services while only paying for their actual needs.

This marks the first low-cost interline agreement, argue both airlines. Through the agreement, the airlines aim to strengthen their presence in the region while developing the market and contributing to economic dynamization. Air inclusion is a major factor in this new plan, as both companies seek to increase the number of passengers in the region by creating more opportunities to fly between Colombia and Mexico.

The commercial and tourism potential between both countries is a major factor that both airlines seek to explode, according to Felix Antelo, President and CEO of Viva Air. Viva Aerobus and Viva Air already have two of the youngest fleets in Latin America and both operate Airbus technology.

Viva Aerobus recently received the “Value Airline of the Year” award for its outstanding performance and innovation strategies, as reported by MBN. “Viva Aerobus has revolutionized the way of travelling by plane in Mexico, and with this agreement with Viva Air we will improve the offer of our flights to Bogota, with great customer service, and more importantly offering the lowest prices since we operate models of ultra-low cost business, always taking care of the economy of our passengers,” said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus.
