Low-cost Viva Aerobus is the next Mexican carrier to announce a slew of new routes to the U.S.

From its base in Monterrey (MTY), Viva plans to launch 6 new routes from January 25, 2024, to Austin (AUS), Denver (DEN), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), Oakland (OAK), and Orlando (MCO).

“These routes to the United States are designed to serve the largest international air travel market in the world with low-cost options that truly make it easier for people to travel to see family and friends, go on vacation, or make business trips,” said Juan Carlos Zuazua, Managing Director at Viva Aerobus.

Let’s take a closer look at Viva’s U.S. route network expansion.

Viva Aerobus Launching Several New U.S. Routes

Thanks to its amazing food, great weather, rich culture, proximity, and more, Mexico is one of the most-visited destinations by U.S. tourists.

With that, it makes sense that Viva wasted no time in announcing new routes as soon as Mexico regained its Category 1 safety rating from the FAA. And its announcement comes just a day after Mexican flag carrier Aeromexico announced its own capacity increases on flights to the U.S.

Viva’s new U.S. routes will connect 6 cities with Monterrey — the nation’s second-largest city and only hub for the low-cost airline.

DestinationStart DateFrequency
Austin (AUS)March 22, 2024Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays
Denver (DEN)January 25, 2024Thursdays and Sundays until April; then Tuesdays and Saturdays
Miami (MIA)July 24, 2024Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays
Oakland (OAK)July 1, 2024Mondays and Fridays
Orlando (MCO) May 9, 2024Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays

While Miami and New York already have nonstop service to Monterrey with American Airlines, Viva Aerobus will be the only airline to connect Monterrey with Austin, Denver, Oakland, and Orlando.

The increase in international routes, along with 3 domestic services, will mean a total growth rate of 23% in Viva Aerobus flights from Monterrey and the biggest expansion from the airport in the airline’s history.

Hot Tip:

If you’ve never flown Viva before, take a peek at the airline’s baggage fees and how we suggest covering the expense.

Final Thoughts

Viva Aerobus is making a strong push into the United States on the heels of Mexico regaining its Category 1 safety rating from the FAA. By connecting several U.S. cities with Monterrey, the airline is opening up new low-cost connections between the 2 nations that should open up a whole range of new travel opportunities for residents of both nations.
