In service


Volaris commenced operations in Mar-2006, backed by managers of the Discovery Americas I and Columbia Equity Partners funds, in partnership with TACA Airlines (now part of Avianca). Volaris is a self-described ‘ultra low cost carrier' that operates services throughout Mexico and the US. The carrier primarily targets visiting friends and relatives, or VFR traffic as well as cost-conscious business and leisure travellers. The carrier made its Initial Public Offering in Sept-2013, dual listing on the NYSE (VLRS) and Mexico’s BMV (VOLAR).
