Jeppesen recently signed an electronic flight information service contract to provide tailored Jeppesen flight manuals and e-Link navigation solutions for Volaris Airlines, a leading low cost carrier based in Mexico.

Jeppesen representatives traveled to Volaris Airlines headquarters during the negotiation process to meet with company officials and design unique solutions for the airline. The resulting agreement includes tailored charting applications with access to Jeppesen e-Link digital navigation services.

“After a year-long negotiation process, we are pleased to provide Volaris Airlines with enhanced, tailored data services that will help the airline make the transition to digital flight information,” said Gary Minard, Jeppesen director of Commercial Client Management. “With this recent agreement, Jeppesen now has the four largest Mexican air carriers signed to charting contracts.”

Volaris Airlines was launched in 2006 through a partnership of TACA Airlines and investment fund Discovery Americas. Today, Volaris Airlines operates more than 30 domestic routes with its fleet of Airbus 319 aircraft. Volaris Airlines entered the U.S. market this summer, a transition made easier through a code share agreement with Southwest Airlines.

Uniquely, the airline offers service to the fastest growing cities in Mexico and provides convenient travel options for U.S.-bound travelers. Volaris Airlines also offers travelers an on-time flight guarantee, which includes refund options for a delay of more than 30 minutes.
