Q TRAVEL – Volaris, the ultra-low-cost airline that operates in Mexico, the United States, and Central and South America, was once again recognized by the site Airlineratings.com, an expert in safety evaluation of the aviation industry, as one of the 20 low-cost airlines safest in the world.
Similarly, it was the only airline from Latin America to appear on the list.
Among the criteria used to develop the ranking by Airlineratings.com are: the incident records of the last two years, the accident records of the last five years, the results of the audits carried out by the governing body of aviation, the Organization of International Civil Aviation (ICAO), as well as the age of the fleet.

Currently, the airline has 117 aircraft: 4 A319, 88 A320 (of which 48 are NEO), and 25 A321 (of which 15 are NEO).
