Volaris cuts capacity after Mexico’s health emergency declaration

Published on : Thursday, April 2, 2020

The ultra-low-cost Mexican airline Volaris serving Mexico, the United States, and Central America has decided to reduce capacity after Mexico declared a health emergency in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

 

The decision arrives after the official declaration of health emergency in Mexico announced by the Official Gazette of the Federation, the Government of the United Mexican States, acting through the General Health Council (GHC). The Declaration of Emergency would be in force till the end of this month.

 

 

The health security measures announced by the GHC alongside the Declaration of Emergency include suspension of all non-essential activities in the public, private and social sectors. Every individual has also been ordered to stay at home. This new rule will be impacting the demand for passenger air transportation. Therefore, the decision of cutting down operations appears to be inevitable.

 

 

Previously in March, Volaris already advised for a capacity reduction. The present decision would be an additional capacity reduction. The capacity measured by available seat miles would now be reduced by an approximate of 80 percent of total operation against the original schedule published earlier. This new decision will be effective for the month of April.

 

 

Meanwhile, Volaris will continue to provide relevant market updates about further capacity changes, governmental travel restrictions or other liquidity preserving measures that need to be implemented.
