Volaris sees a 17% growth in passenger numbers.

The leading ultra-low-cost airline serving Mexico, Central America and the US, Volaris has released its latest figures for the year and for the month of September, earlier this week.

Volaris' Chief Executive Officer, Enrique Beltranena, commented: "International load factors were high on the northbound but low on the southbound flights, responding to the seasonality of the VFR traffic. In addition, domestic traffic positively responded in volume despite relatively high ASM growth. This capacity growth reflects the arrival of the Airbus neos. As a general outlook, unit revenues continue the recuperation trend observed in previous months."

According to the latest figures, Volaris increased total capacity, as measured in Available Seat Miles (ASMs), by 17.0% year over year during September. Total demand, as measured in Revenue Passenger Miles (RPMs), in September 2018 increased 15.3% year over year, reaching 1.4 billion. Volaris transported a total of 1.4 million passengers during the month, an increase of 17.0% year over year. Network load factor for September was 81.3%, a decrease of 1.1 percentage points year over year. During September 2018, Volaris launched one domestic route Guadalajara, Jalisco to Tapachula, Chiapas.
