Volaris confirmed to TPG that they would begin flights from Leon/Guanajuato, Mexico (BJX) to Chicago (ORD) and Las Vegas (LAS) on April 2 and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) on April 3. The airline will also begin service between DFW and Zacatecas, Mexico (ZCL) on April 2.

Volaris will fly three flights a week on the Chicago and Las Vegas routes and two on the DFW routes.

Volaris will also operate a weekly seasonal flight from Los Angeles (LAX) to Cancun, Mexico (CUN). That service is set to begin on May 23 and continue through Aug. 15.

TPG previously reported that the airline serves more destinations in Mexico from the U.S. than any other carrier.

This post has been updated to reflect the correct number of weekly frequencies.
