Volaris Reports a 2% Increase in Passengers and an 80% Load Factor for March 2014

MEXICO CITY, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Volaris* (NYSE: VLRS and BMV: VOLAR), the ultra-low-cost airline serving Mexico and the US, today reported its preliminary traffic results for March 2014.

The total number of booked passengers in March 2014 reached 723 thousand, a 1.7% increase compared to the same period in 2013. Volaris' demand, measured in Revenue Passenger Miles (RPMs) increased 2.0% year over year in March 2014. Volaris registered a load factor of 80.4% in March 2014. Volaris' capacity in March 2014, measured in Available Seat Miles (ASMs) increased only 6.3% year over year. This result reflects the Company's capacity management discipline and the ability to flex its network growth up in a period of strong demand and flex down when demand is low.

As opposed to March 2013, Holy week, one of the most active travel weeks in Mexico, will happen in April of 2014.
