Mexican discount airline Volaris plans to start twice weekly service from Guadalajara to L.A./Ontario International Airport, confirming an L.A. Airspace report from September, when we discovered the carrier’s application with the U.S. Department of Transportation.
This is somewhat big news for Ontario, which has been steadily losing passenger traffic in the past five years. But it actually does not give the airport a new destination. Aeromexico is already flying daily to Guadalajara.
Ontario is the seventh California destination for Volaris. It joins Los Angeles, Oakland/San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, Fresno and Sacramento in the carrier’s route network.
Here’s the schedule:
- Guadalajara, Jalisco – Ontario, California. (Starting April 12th. Wednesday and Saturday) Departing from Guadalajara at 22:40 hrs., arriving to Ontario at 00:05 hrs
- Ontario – Guadalajara, (Starting April 13th. Thursday and Sunday) Departing from Ontario at 01:20 hrs., arriving to Guadalajara at 06:45 hrs
