LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Today, Viva Aerobus, Mexico´s leading ultra-low-cost carrier and 4th largest airline in Mexico, officially inaugurated its regular route from Las Vegas to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon.
This route is creating an affordable connection that brings two outstanding cities closer than ever.
The route offers two flights per week, on Thursdays and Sundays, at prices starting from $76 each way.
These estimated 180-minute flights will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft, with capacity for 186 passengers; offering the highest standards in safety, efficiency and reliability.
“The launch of direct service from Monterrey provides an exceptional opportunity to position Las Vegas as a world-class destination with the added benefit of convenience and flexibility” said Steve Hill, CEO and President for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
“Las Vegas is an exciting global city and the addition of this nonstop flight is an important milestone in expanding our reach into Mexico and growing overall international visitation.”
This route gives U.S. travelers a very accessible option to discover Monterrey, a city known for business, industry and its economic center as well for its landscape and historical richness.
Previously, these flights were only offered during holidays since 2014. However, backed by Viva Aerobus’ deep knowledge of its customers, this route now offers, continuously, more than 38,000 seats per year serving the bidirectional market demand.
According to LVCVA, in 2017 Mexico contributed 1.15 million visitors to Las Vegas and with this new route, it is anticipated an economic impact of nearly 27.4 million USD in Las Vegas.
Viva first arrived in the U.S. in 2008 and it already offers 11 non-stop flights from/to U.S. from Cincinnati, Charlotte, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York and Newark.
"We are thrilled to launch this new route, which represents a milestone for US and Mexico´s air connectivity. Our low-cost travel option makes the difference as it has added values, flying in the newest Mexican fleet, a customer-centric focus and personalized trips as you pay only for what you need”, said Juan Carlos Zuazua from Viva Aerobus.
“With us, travelers spend less and enjoy more, that’s why we are the best flight option," he concluded.
