Volaris, a Mexican low-cost airline based in Toluca, Mexico, has received its first Airbus A320 from Airbus. In January 2006, Volaris signed a contract with Airbus for the acquisition of 16 new A319s, which was renewed in 2007 for 14 more A320 Family aircraft.

Volaris, which started operating in 2006, has since successfully expanded its route network with an all-Airbus fleet, and currently operates 18 A319s.

Volaris' new A320 will carry 174 passengers in a single class configuration and will be equipped with IAE V2500 engines. The aircraft will be put into service on Volaris' high density routes from its Toluca hub.

"The Airbus A320 Family is for us the ideal mix in terms of performance, reliability, flexibility and great economics. Extra comfort levels are guaranteed through the new Airbus cabin, giving our passengers an attractive and unique travel experience at an affordable price and with maximum comfort", said Dr. Pedro Aspe, Chairman of Volaris.

Volaris is an equal partnership between Inbursa (a Mexican financial institution), Protego-Discovery (an investment fund), TACA (a leading Latin-American airline) and Grupo Televisa (a Latin-American media conglomerate).
