Mexican Airline Volaris is launching a new route between Cancun and San Juan, Puerto Rico, the Puerto Rico Tourism Company announced.

The new service with the Mexican low-cost carrier will begin operating beginning July 2 every Thursday and Sunday.

“With this agreement to restore a direct route to Mexico, we greatly extend the framework of opportunities to establish business relations with Latin America, which complements our efforts to once again approach these countries,” said Alberto Bacó, Department of Economic Development and Trade Secretary in Puerto Rico. “We owe this achievement to the promotional efforts we have supported in the region and the work of commercial offices that allow us to move forward towards the internationalization of the economy of Puerto Rico.”

The flights will connect to Mexico City as well, according to the PRTC.

“The arrival of Volaris to Puerto Rico is part of PRTC’s efforts to expand air access to our destination,” said Ingrid I. Rivera Rocafort, executive director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company. “With this achievement, we restore the direct connection of our island to Mexico, which is the Latin American country that sends the most visitors to Puerto Rico. Visiting San Juan will now be easier and cheaper for tourists visiting us from this sister country.”
