Mexico City, Mexico — On March 21, commercial airlines will begin operating at the Felipe Angeles International Airport (AIFA) in Santa Lucia. For its starting operations, only eight commercial routes have been confirmed with two airlines.
Volaris, who was the first commercial airline to confirm the sale of flights from Saint Lucia, will begin daily operations as of March 21, 2022. The airline will fly to and from Saint Lucia to Tijuana, Baja California and Cancún, Quintana Roo.
Viva Aerobus, the only other airline to confirm it will use the airport, will also begin operating from Saint Lucia on March 21. Viva Aerobus says they will offer daily flights to and from the Felipe Angeles International Airport to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon and Guadalajara Jalisco.
The company also announced an option of ground transportation for passengers that will take them from the airport to the Central Bus Terminal of the North of Mexico City and vice versa, a journey of about 40 kilometers.
Both Volaris and Viva Aerobus highlighted that these flights are additional to those they have at other airports, including Mexico City International Airport (AICM), where they will continue to operate.
At the moment, no international airlines have confirmed routes to or from AIFA. Aeroméxico has already said they will not be offering flights from the Felipe Angeles International Airport once complete, but instead, will concentrate on more flights out of the AICM.
