Director Alvaro Vargas, confirmed that Aviación is validating technical, financial and legal information presented in the request.

Volaris
Concesionaria Vuela Compañía de Aviación, S.A. de C.V., operating as Volaris, based in Santa Fe, started in August 2005,  under the name Vuela Airlines. Major initial shareholders of the company were Grupo Televisa (the world’s biggest Spanish-language media conglomerate), Inbursa (an insurance company owned by billionaire Carlos Slim), Avianca (then TACA Airlines) and the Discovery Americas Fund. Each of these partners invested 25% of the initial cost of activities, or US$100 million dollars. On July 2010, it was announced that Televisa and Inbursa had sold their stake in Volaris leaving the ownership of Volaris as follows: Avianca (then TACA Airlines) with Roberto and Maria Cristina Kriete (50%), Investment fund Discovery Americas (over 25%) and Indigo Partners: Fund led by former America West CEO B. Franke.
