Volaris to operate a third of its total flights in June
MEXICO – The Mexican airline Volaris will operate a third of its total flights in June against the originally published itinerary, this derived from the impact of the health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through a statement, the national carrier indicated that this measure represents a recovery with respect to the adjustments previously made, this in consequence of low flight demand.
“Volaris has implemented new biosecurity and prevention measures for the safety and well-being of its clients, crews and ground personnel,” the airline said in a statement.
During April, the airline led by Enrique Beltranena reported an 83.4% reduction in its total number of passengers, transporting 307,000 travelers, when in the same month of 2019 it had exceeded 850 million mobilized passengers.
For the same month, the airline implemented the same measure, after reducing its capacity -measuring available seats per mile- by 80%. Similarly, it temporarily suspended its operations in 14 US cities.
