Viva Aerobus postpones new routes in AIFA and Toluca due to lack of planes

Viva Aerobus will postpone the opening of four of the five new routes announced for the new Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA) and four more to Toluca International Airport due to delays in the delivery of nine aircraft from the European manufacturer Airbus, as well as company components Pratt & Whitney.

The routes postponed from the AIFA are to Puerto Escondido, Acapulco and Oaxaca (which were to begin operating in July and will now operate in September), in addition to Havana, which also opened in July and was postponed indefinitely. From Toluca, the routes to Monterrey and Cancún were postponed from July to September, while the connection to Mérida was postponed from September 9 to 23, and the route to Puerto Vallarta from September 9 to November.

“It should be noted that the new route from AIFA to Cancun will begin on July 15, as planned. Likewise, the flights already in operation from the AIFA to Guadalajara and Monterrey remain unchanged,” the airline said in a statement.
