Houston Airports System Announces Viva Aerobus, Mexico´s ultra-low-cost carrier, adds new international service from IAH to Queretaro, Mexico.
Ultra-low-cost Mexican carrier Viva Aerobus is launching a new year-round service from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Queretaro, Mexico. Starting December 2, this nonstop route will operate four days per week.
“We are thrilled to welcome Viva Aerobus’ fifth nonstop connection from IAH to Mexico. Houston continues to be one of the leading markets in the U.S. by the number of Mexican destinations served, and this new service will continue to strengthen the ties between Houston and Mexico.” Said Mario Diaz, Director of Aviation for Houston Airports.
This builds on Viva’s expansion into the US and follows the FAA restoring Mexico’s Category 1 rating. Viva Aerobus also offers flights from Houston to Guadalajara, Leon, Mexico City, and Monterrey. Tickets are already available, with one-way fares for as low as USD $79 plus taxes.
“We are excited to announce additional growth in the US cities where we already operate as part of our major expansion strategy in this country, encouraging passengers to take advantage of our increased connectivity, low fares and modern fleet,” said Juan Carlos Zuazua, CEO of Viva Aerobus. “A unique benefit of our service is that, thanks to our partner bus companies, we provide the H-Town passengers up to 50% discount on bus tickets to discover beautiful ‘magic towns’ near Queretaro such as San Miguel de Allende, Bernal and Tequisquiapan. Besides, this route also represents more opportunities for Mexican travelers to discover America’s fourth-largest city, a cosmopolitan destination with world-class entertainment and shopping, serving leisure, VFR, and business markets, thus, boosting local tourism and economy”, he added.
Established in 2006, Viva Aerobus is again expanding its service to George Bush Intercontinental Airport. This time, they aim to offer passengers a diverse range of options that go beyond just low fares. Viva Aerobus allows travelers to customize their travel experience based on their specific needs and budget. Additionally, the airline takes pride in operating one of Mexico’s newest and most modern fleets and the 4th largest in North America, consisting of 78 advanced Airbus aircraft.
What sets Viva Aerobus apart is its loyalty and reward program, Doters, which provides passengers with numerous benefits and makes flying a more enjoyable and convenient experience.
For those traveling from Queretaro, nonstop flights will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, departing at 2:30 p.m. Return flights from Houston are scheduled for 5:55 p.m. The flights will be operated using Airbus A320 aircraft, known for their spacious single-aisle cabins, offering passengers more room to stretch out, wider seats, and larger overhead compartments.
