Flying Under a Dime

Viva Aerobus, the new Mexican no-frills airline, is now offering flights for $1 M.N. That’s less than $.10 USD. No, the decimal point isn’t misplaced. Of course, taxes and handling come extra, bringing the total to about $24 USD, but it’s still a bargain.

Here’s the deal. Buy your ticket between the 4th and 8th of June, and fly between June 13 and September.

It’s a point-to-point airline, which means that passengers are responsible for their own luggage. Like Southwest Airlines, it doesn’t have an interline agreement. And only one 25 kilo bag is permitted under the baggage allowance. No pets, except guide dogs, no dead bodies, and no stretchers are permitted.

Food is sold on board at reasonable prices (American Airlines, are you listening?), ranging for $10 M.N. for a bran bar, cookies, or chips, to $15 M.N. for a Coke, and all the way up to $20 M.N. for a beer or a sandwich.


Based in Monterrey, the airline flies to Ixtapa, Acapulco, Cd. Juarez, Villahermosa, Tampico, Lèon, Tijuana, Culiacán, Cancún, and Chihuahua. And yes, Morelia. But from Morelia, there’s but a single flight to Monterrey.
