Volaris will stop operating 9 “unprofitable” routes in the AICM

Volaris announced that 9 of the 49 routes operated by the Mexico City International Airport (AICM) will be canceled because they are not profitable, leaving a total of 40 for the month of September.
During a conference with analysts, the airline revealed that until April of the current year it maintained a total of 49 routes, while for the month of September in what corresponds to the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), these will be reduced to 12.
In The same period of time indicated that the Toluca International Airport (AIT) was not in operations at the beginning of the year, but that in the coming months the air trajectories will increase to 6.
For his part, the general director of Volaris, Enrique Beltranena, indicated that for some years his operation in the AICM has been “limited”; however, the negotiations they made to reduce costs in the AIFA and the AIT have caused growth in the Metropolitan Zone of the Valley of Mexico.
“It allows Volaris to play its strategy of growing in a population of 30 million, but we are not playing to move people from very far from those airports, we are playing in the catchment areas,” said the manager.
Beltranena commented that since there are only 200 flights for more than 30 million people, they hope to be able to multiply the structure around the metropolitan area by 4 or 5 times in the near future.
