Concesionaria Vuela Compania de Aviacion, S.A. de C.V. dba Volaris, has applied with the DOT to commence service between Monterrey and Los Angeles. The carrier plans to commence the service at the soonest opportunity after the authority is granted.
This would be Volaris 5th market from LAX. Quite a fast build up!
From the desert to the sea, to all of Southern California

Quoting LAXintl (Reply 4): Mexicana did MTY-LAX briefly dropping it sometime this summer.
Wow! I know several people who fly to MTY often and it seems to be a pretty big market from Southern California. In fact if memory serves me correctly, I believe ex California Governor Davis went with his delegation to promote service to Southern California to MTY a couple of years prior to him getting re-called from office.
This is interesting, Mexicana runs the show on LAX-Mexico routes, or pretty much on California-Mexico (except SAN)... Volaris is starting to build a little niche at LAX, so if/when the Southwest partnership kicks in, I suspect Volaris will give MX a lot more competition than Aeromexico has ever done at LAX.
