Mérida, Yucatán — VivaAerobús has started selling seats for its new Mérida-Tuxtla Gutiérrez route, with one-way tickets starting at 898 pesos, or just under 50 bucks.

That price beats competitor Aeromar, which charges nearly double for a one-way fare.

The destination is Chiapas’ largest city and its capital, and is a starting-off point for tourists who want to see the rest of the region, such as its mountains and national parks.

More importantly, Tuxtla — as it is commonly known — is a busy government and business destination.

The flight, which lasts about an hour and 10 minutes, will begin operations June 4 on Mondays and Thursdays.

In the first year of operations of this route Viva Aerobús will offer more than 38,000 seats to the destination.

The low-cost carrier was founded in 2006 with its hub at Monterrey International Airport.

“Viva Aerobús continues revolutionizing the way of traveling, distinguishing itself by a service that is able to combine competitive prices and personalized trips. That is our definition of connectivity,” said Juan Carlos Zuazua.

Viva Aerobús offers the most destinations from Mérida International Airport.

“We are proud to add another national route to our offer. As allies and ambassadors of Mexico, we are excited to link the secrets of the Mayan world with the wonders of the biodiversity in Chiapas,” said Zuazua.
