Santa Fe, Mexico

Advertizing as "Mexico's lowest cost carrier.", operating a mix of A321, A320 & A319 aircraft in the heavily competed Mexican market.

On a successful and profitable expansion surge, with impressive ambitions ahead.


Holger Blankenstein - Volaris CCO:

"The project we did together with Schedule Consult was a significant success.

Schedule Consult conducted an integral and detailed analysis of our operations and schedule. With this analysis and their recommendations, we achieved process improvements in operations, airports and our commercial planning process.

With an optimized and modularized schedule we managed to improve aircraft utilization and crew scheduling efficiencies."

Having rapidly developed from a small start-up operation, Volaris experienced that a larger company size calls for adjustments in the planning approach.

With further expansion on the line, the company is working on internal transitions, that match its new status.

Schedule Consult was invited to assist in sorting out the key requirements of this challenge together with the Volaris team.
