LONDON – Mexican ultra-low-cost carrier Volaris will be launching a new route between Albuquerque and Guadalajara International Airport.

This new service is to commence on November 17 and will operate on a twice-weekly basis—every Monday and Saturday.

This is a significant milestone for the Sunport International Airport in Albuquerque, as this will be the first international route secured in more than eight years.

At the announcements were Volaris Founder and CEO Enrique Beltranena as well as Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller.

“We are extremely happy about the number of flights already booked through our website for the route between Albuquerque and Guadalajara,” Beltranena said.

This flight will depart from Guadalajara at 07:55 before arriving into Sunport at 10:15.

“We will continue to support destinations that respond to the needs of our core market, Visiting Friends and Relatives, and continue to do this with the best possible fares and the youngest fleet of the Americas,” he added.

“It is critical for tourism and the economic development of the city, making [Albuquerque] directly accessible to international markets,” commented Albuquerque’s Major Keller.

“This new direct service to Mexico will not only open new opportunities to share our city, but it will also give the New Mexico community more options to travel internationally”, he added.

Keller also added that he considers international companies his priority as they are trying to acquire as much international trade as possible to exchange with their current domestic businesses. 

The return flight to Guadalajara will then depart Sunport at 11:35 and arrive back into Guadalajara at 15:25.
