This new route is part of Volaris expansion strategy in US key destinations. Volaris started operations in Houston with a nonstop service from Guadalajara in 2015.

Houston is a major market for Volaris due to the large percentage of the population with a Mexican heritage. This important demographic makes the city a key location for Volaris´ expansion.
