Volaris is also known as Concesionaria Vuela Compañía de Aviación, S.A.P.I. de C.V. is a low-cost Mexican airline based in Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Tijuana. The airline offers scheduled flights across the Americas, mainly offering domestic flights within Mexico and international flights to the US. The airline has a large route network that includes over 65 destinations. It's currently the main airline in Mexico for domestic flights and is second only to Aeromexico as the most popular airline overall (international and domestic). The airline has 3 focus cities and these include Cancún International Airport (CUN), León Airport (LEN), and Monterrey International Airport (MTW).

Volaris Airlines was founded in 2004 with a goal to run as an ultra-low-cost airline that would offer more access to routes for Mexicans. Before its first operations, the airline was previously known as Vuela Airlines. Its first flight flew in 2006, from Toluca to Tijuana. Later that year, the carrier was then awarded funding of $40 million, which then consolidated investment of $130 million, which is used to expand its route offering in Mexico and expanded into other parts of the Americas.

Today, Volaris stands as one of the most important airlines in Mexico, with one of the youngest fleets in the country and more than 200 daily flights.

In 2016, the airline launched its first subsidiary, Volaris Costa Rica, which flies to a number of destinations across Central and North America from San Jose airport. In 2018, the airline revealed plans to launch another subsidiary called Volaris El Salvador and it commended operations in September 2019.

The airline announced a frequent flyer program called the VClub in June 2012.
