After just four years of operations, Querétaro-based TAR Airlines is opening three new routes, including one that connects travelers to Mérida.
The new route begins June 18, as do trips to Veracruz and Puerto Escondito.
For business travelers, the regional airline also plans to increase capacity on routes to Monterrey and Guadalajara.
“We’re also going to have two daily flights to Chihuahua, a daily flight to Ciudad Juárez and a daily flight to Torreón,” improving connectivity for the aeronautics and automotive industries, said CEO Rodrigo Vázquez Colmenares.
TAR will take delivery next month of its 11th airplane, a 50-seat Embraer that will be used for charter flights and tourism packages.
“With these packages in partnership with the most important hotel chains in the country we’ll have a product that is within reach of the consumers of Querétaro,” Vázquez told reporters.
Opening a new route to Texas was postponed following the change of government in the U.S., but discussions are under way in San Antonio and flights could begin before the end of the year, he said.
TAR has been growing quickly, at a rate of 68 percent in the last year. It projects at least 30 percent growth in the next year, said Vázquez Colmenares.
This airline is a subsidiary of Mafra Group, owned by Mexican investors and presided by Miguel Franco, of Querétaro.
