Volaris Begins International Service to Guadalajara from Denver


DENVER — July 7, 2014 — Denver International Airport (DEN) today congratulates Volaris on beginning nonstop service to Guadalajara (GDL).

DEN’s international nonstop destinations have increased by more than 30 percent since 2011 to a total of 24 destinations with recent service additions on various airlines to Reykjavik, Iceland (KEF); Tokyo, Japan (NRT); Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ), and Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ).

“Volaris has shown commitment to the Denver market by increasing nonstop destinations since the airline began service in December 2012,” said Denver Mayor Michael Hancock. “Each new city added strengthens Mexico’s connectivity to Denver and the world, and opens up greater economic opportunities for both countries.”

Volaris began nonstop service from DEN to Benito Juárez International Airport in Mexico City in December 2012. Since service began, passenger traffic between Mexico City and Denver has increased nearly every month.

“Passengers have been responding positively to the air service provided by Volaris to Mexico City, and early sales are demonstrating the market to and from Guadalajara will be as receptive,” said Kim Day, CEO of Denver International Airport. “We are looking forward to welcoming new visitors to Denver and the region as we continue to serve additional nonstop international destinations.”

Volaris will operate the Guadalajara flight once a week on Mondays. The aircraft will arrive in Denver at 12:50 p.m. and depart to Gaudalajara at 2:15 p.m.

“We are extremely pleased to increase our connectivity efforts throughout Mexico in Guadalajara where we hold a market lead in terms of seat and route offerings,” said Volaris CEO, Enrique Beltranena. “Moreover, this route will help strengthen social and cultural ties between Mexico and the U.S, and enhance economic and tourism activities for these regions.”

According to the US Census Bureau, 32 percent of Denver residents are Hispanic or of a Latin American descent. The city is marked by a strong presence of the Mexican community from the states of Chihuahua, Durango, Zacatecas and Jalisco. According to the Mexican Consulate in Denver, these numbers continue to rise year after year because of strong activity in Denver, Colorado’s state capital.
