Volaris selects Airbus as flight training provider
Volaris, the low-cost airline serving Mexico and the US, has chosen “Training By Airbus” to provide A320 Family flight simulator training and courses in Miami and Mexico as part of an agreement which includes more than 25,000 flight training hours for 500 pilots. Volaris, an all-Airbus operator, has ordered a total of 74 aircraft to date and operates 47 A320 Family aircraft. Training of Volaris’ pilots has already begun at the Airbus Training Center in Miami, and in 2015, Airbus will provide the airline with flight training in Mexico City where it is based. With this new facility, Airbus plans to build on the expertise of its Miami Training Center to create a satellite flight training operation in Mexico City, which will also mark the opening of the first Airbus flight training centre in Latin America.
