On 18 December, Volaris’ new service from Cancun to Las Vegas was celebrated with a toast. Among those enjoying the moment were: Rafael Villanueva, Senior Director of International Sales, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (far left); Chris Jones, Public Affairs & Marketing Manager, McCarran International Airport (second from left); and Holger Blankenstein, CCO, Volaris (second from right in pink tie). There was also an impressive cake to commemorate the event.(Picture credit Las Vegas News Bureau.)

Reno-Tahoe Airport in Nevada became Volaris’ newest destination on 16 December with the introduction on twice-weekly flights from Guadalajara. The route has become the first regular commercial service from outside the US in 15 years at the Nevada airport.

Volaris continues to expand its US presence. In mid-December the airline added two new routes to airports in Nevada. On 16 December the Mexican LCC began a twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays) service on the 2,625-kilometre route between Guadalajara (GDL) and Reno, NV (RNO). Then, on 18 December, it began twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays) flights on the 3,214-kilometre route between Cancun (CUN) and Las Vegas, NV (LAS). This becomes Volaris’ first international route from its Cancun base. Neither of these airport pairs is flown by any other carrier, and will be operated by the airline’s A320-series aircraft. This winter Volaris will serve 33 destinations non-stop from Guadalajara (including 16 in the US), and 14 from Cancun.
