Miami to Asuncion $223 RT, Garuda to start Los Angeles, Viva Aerobus on the road to success, Air Baltic adds Dubai
– Aerolineas Argentinas has some interesting fares flights from Miami to Asuncion for just $223 Round Trip in Economy – it prices out only on cheapoair.com
– Great news – Garuda Indonesia has filed for service to Los Angeles via Japan – let’s hope it really happens!
– Mexican LCC Viva Aerobus churned out a very respectable $36 million in profits in 2016 also interesting is the history and how serious the airline seems on growth (I can see plenty of potential in Mexico, Southern US and Central America)
Viva Aerobus was originally launched in 2006 and was co-owned by Mexico City-based passenger transport conglomerate IAMSA and Irelandia Aviation (founders of Ryanair). In December 2016, IAMSA bought out Irelandia Aviation’s 49% interest in the company, making the airline 100% Mexican-owned. As part of that transaction, IAMSA sold its 25% stake in Colombian airline Viva Colombia to Irelandia Aviation.
Additionally in December 2016, the company named Walmart business executive Gian Carlo Nucci as the new CEO of Grupo Viva Aerobus, effective Jan. 9. Juan Carlos Zuazua continues as CEO of Viva Aerobus, guiding airline operations, but now reports to Nucci.
