The second largest airline of Mexico was initially known as Vuela Airlines in 2005, though ticket sales started in January 2006. Though the name was changed to “Volaris” in 2010, after the ownership had changed to Avianca with 50% and Investment fund Discovery Americas with over 25%. The delivery of the airline’s first aircraft and the first (non-commercial) flight was operated in February 2006. Scheduled revenue flights were launched on March 13, 2006, with the inaugural flight having been operated from Toluca to Tijuana.
Now, Volaris has grown rapidly with a fleet of 59 Airbus models which serve 65 destinations: (43) domestic and (22) international routes. Volaris operates at the following airports:
- Benito Juárez International Airport (Mexico City)
- Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport (Guadalajara)
- General Abelardo L. Rodríguez International Airport (Tijuana)
- General Mariano Escobedo International Airport (Monterrey)

Official Website, Mobile app and Volaris Reviews of Customers
I am pleased with the overall design and functionality of the website. According to several Volaris reviews, the airline is really keen in providing not only accommodating service during the flight, but also before and prior to booking. The official site is user friendly and well organized which doesn’t give the hassle to other customers while booking or searching for a flight deal online. One funny thing they said about Volaris was “This Minecraft inspired airline can be the next flag carrier of Mexico.”
Unlike other low-cost airlines, Volaris has a mobile app for their PC services. Customers can find cheap tickets, promotions, review itinerary and have their boarding pass with them at all times. The travel app is available on App Store, Google Play Store and Windows Store.

Me too, I thought the airline was inspired by Minecraft, because of the pixelated logo. If by chance I will travel to and from Mexico, I will definitely choose to book and ride with Volaris. You might be wondering now, how I stumbled upon Volaris? Well, it’s the power of word of mouth and through that I was happy to write a review about this Mexican budget airline that offers more than a decent flight but also exclusive services.
