Volaris adjusts operations to 75% of capacity for September 2020

Volaris (NYSE: VLRS) (BMV: VOLAR) has announced it has adjusted its operation to approximately 75% of capacity for September 2020, as a result of the health emergency generated by the pandemic of the virus SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19), the company said.

Volaris, measuring capacity in available seat miles, will operate at 75% capacity, versus the originally published schedule, in response to a gradual recovery in demand for its air transportation services. This is equivalent to 86% of the capacity operated in September 2019.

This represents an increase in its capacity compared to the months of May, June, July and August 2020, where capacity operated represented 11%, 37%, 55% and 70% respectively of its total operations versus the itinerary originally published for those months.
