Viva Aerobus is making a splash in Sonora by offering low airfare travel from Hermosillo to Las Vegas starting in March of 2010.  CEO, Mike Suczs is bringing his experience as COO of easyJet, the low cost European airlines to Mexico…and we are glad he did!

With a motto of Safety, Service, & Schedules Viva is able to provide customers with lower prices by cutting costs without cutting safety.  Their fleet of Boeing 737-300’s is maintained following the U.S. FAA and the Mexican DGAC guidelines. 

They offer “no frills” service, which still allows you to purchase drinks and snacks on board.  They offer “ticket-less” booking, which also keeps their costs to a minimum.  First come first serve seating allows  passengers to board early and also helps to keep schedules on track.  They are a point-to-point airline, which means they do not transfer or connect passengers, and/or their baggage to other Viva flights or other airline flights. 

To book online and to  read about their travel policies, flight change information, or look at airport maps go to  You can also phone in your ticket purchase and the numbers are listed on the website.  Click on the American flag in the upper right hand corner to view the website in English. 

With one-way tickets from Hermosillo, Sonora to Las Vegas priced at $69 USD all I have to say is “Viva las Vegas!”
