Recently, Volaris was the first airline to announce that it would start flying from the Felipe Angeles International Airport to Cancun and Tijuana, as soon as the air port located in Santa Lucia begins to operate.
However, various netizens celebrated the fact that the TUA that will be charged for the use of one of the government’s flagship works of the “Fourth Transformation” will be 120 pesos, a cost much less than the 570 pesos charged in the current CDMX airport.
On its official website, Volaris announces a Santa Lucía-Cancun flight with a total cost of 1,028 pesos and another option, departing from the AICM to the same destination for 2,419 pesos. Which represents a saving for passengers of 1,391 pesos.
What is the TUA?
The TUA is a charge for each passenger that is added to the total cost of each travel ticket, as its name implies, it is an Airport Use Fee. In some cases, the TUA represents most of the cost of the flight ticket, therefore, the lower it is, the cheaper it is to fly.
