In July 2021, demand in the domestic Mexican and international markets for Volaris increased 23.2% and 10.3%, compared to July 2019, respectively. The Company capitalized on opportunities to add capacity, both domestically (+23.3%) and internationally (+7.3%), while maintaining a high load factor (89.5%). In July 2021, Volaris transported 2.3 million passengers, a record month and 16% higher than the pre-pandemic levels.

Last minute demand for July remained as strong as in previous months, despite the Delta variant. We have not seen any reductions in travel demand, and we reaffirm our capacity growth guidance for the quarter of 20-22% versus the 3rd quarter of 2019. This guidance assumes no demand softness as a result of the Delta variant.
