January 7. Volaris, Viva Aerobus, and Aeromexico have published their 2021 full traffic results, and they show what an incredible recovery the Mexican airline industry had last year. Aeromexico closed the year back on track, rebounding entirely from the COVID-19 pandemic, while Volaris and Viva Aerobus grew compared to pre-crisis levels.
Volaris had one of the most remarkable recoveries from the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. The Mexican ultra-low-cost carrier is back on track and growing, despite the world still facing uncertainty, new variants, travel restrictions, and more.
Viva Aerobus, the second low-cost carrier in Mexico, also had a strong recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline carried 15.2 million passengers in 2021, a 27% increase compared to 2019.
Grupo Aeromexico didn’t grow in 2021, compared to 2019 levels. The legacy airline had more challenges to face last year, including a Chapter 11 bankruptcy and travel restrictions worldwide.
