MIAMI — Mexican ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) Volaris has announced on Wednesday the launch of its new international routes from Guadalajara to Miami and from Mexico City to New York, Houston and Miami.

Volaris has previously expressed interest in adding routes to the United States, although these plans were impeded by the existing bilateral agreement between both countries, which limited operations to destinations such as Mexico City. The new Bilateral Air Transport Agreement has liberalized certain air transport services between both countries.

“These new routes are a result of the recent changes to the Bilateral Air Transport Agreement between Mexico and the United States, driven by the authorities of both countries, whom we thank for the great work done to generate these competitive conditions,” Holger Blankenstein, chief commercial officer of Volaris, said in a press release.

The new flights will begin February 1, with a daily service from Mexico City departing at 14:44 and arriving in Miami at 18:59. Return flight will leave Miami at 20:19 and arrive in Mexico City at 22:34, all local times. Also, flights from Guadalajara to Miami will be offered four times a week, departing from Guadalajara at 07:30 and arriving to Miami at 12:10. Return flight will leave Miani at 13:25, to arrive to Guadalajara at 16:05, all local times.

Flights to New York and Houston will start in March. The Mexico – City New Yok route will be served daily, with flights departing Mexico City at 00:23, and will arrive to New York at 04:03. Return flights will be at 05:18 and arrival to Mexico City at 08:58, all local times.

The Mexico City – Houston route will be offered four times a week, with flights leaving on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 06:30 from Mexico City, and arriving in Houston at 08:50. Return flight will leave Houston at 10:50, arriving to Mexico City as 12:25, all local times.

Separately, Southwest Airlines also announced on Wednesday that it is increasing its flights from Hobby Airport to Mexico City to three times a day starting January 5.
