Southern California's Ontario International Airport (ONT) announced Tuesday that Volaris will launch nonstop service to Mexico City (MEX), making the capital city the second Mexico destination reached nonstop from ONT.
Volaris will begin the ONT-MEX service Nov. 9. The new route will complement Volaris' existing ONT nonstop flight serving Guadalajara that began in 2014.
The approximately two-hour flight will operate with A320 equipment outfitted with 179 coach seats.
Announcement of the ONT-MEX services comes on the heels of airlines resuming nonstop flights to Chicago Midway and Houston Intercontinental earlier this month, marking the fourth straight month of flight increases for ONT since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ontario International Airport is the fastest growing airport in the United States, according to Global Traveler, a leading publication for frequent fliers. Located in the Inland Empire, ONT is approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles in the center of Southern California. It is a full-service airport which, before the coronavirus pandemic, offered nonstop commercial jet service to 26 major airports in the U.S., Mexico and Taiwan.
