    Starting in May there will be another option for folks wanting to get to Mexico.

    Volaris Airlines announced Thursday is will being a daily nonstop between Oakland International Airport (OAK) and Mexico City (MEX) beginning May 6.

    Volaris already has two daily nonstop flights from Oakland to Guadalajara.

    The Mexico City flight is a red eye. The flight leaves each night at 12:20 a.m. and gets into Mexico City at 6:30 a.m.

    The flight home leaves Mexico City at 7:55 p.m. with a 10:30 p.m. arrival back to Oakland.

    Volaris is Mexico’s second largest air carrier. It began service out of at Oakland in July 2008 and operates from Terminal 1

    The press release announcing the new flight did not include a ticket price range. We have an email in to Volaris in hopes of being able to add that information here.
