New Services, Health Measures

On July 3, the carrier will start its new Monterrey-San Antonio route with two flights per week, on Mondays and Fridays.

Regarding this, VB CEO, Juan Carlos Zuazua said the company decided to increase the international offer to meet passengers’ needs, which also include prioritizing their health and well-being.

As a result, the company has implemented a low-fare scheme. It has also launched ‘Viva Contigo,’ a campaign to provide a safe traveler journey for customers and staff.

Besides onboard disinfection processes and those in common areas, the airline’s staff will have to use protective equipment while passengers will have to commit to basic health protocols.

The company also increased its fleet with the delivery of its first A321-200NX(LR) last week. The aircraft is part of a 41 A321-200N order announced by Airbus in 2018.

The carrier currently operates 18 A320-200 and 19 A320-200neo, which serve international and domestic destinations, according to ch-aviation.

The new additions will allow VB to increase its frequencies and fulfill the Mexican market demand.
