Low-cost Mexican carrier Volaris has applied to the US Department of Transportation to begin flights on two new US-Mexico routes.
The airline plans to launch operations between Leon, Mexico and Chicago Midway, Illinois as well as Guadalajara, Mexico and Sacramento, California. It will operate Airbus A320 family aircraft on the routes.
Volaris already operates to Chicago Midway, which is one of eight US cities it serves. The airline launched flights from Mexico City to Orlando this month.
Volaris will be the only airline operating between Leon and Chicago Midway. United Airlines offers one-stop service between Leon and Chicago O'Hare, schedules in Innovata show. Aeromexico and Alaska Airlines operate non-stop between Guadalajara and Sacramento, with Aeromexico offering six weekly flights on the route while Alaska operates thrice weekly.
