In the first quarter of this year, VivaAerobus had a net loss of 240 million pesos, which contrasts with a net profit of 426 million pesos in the same period of 2018. 

This fall was due, among other factors, to the fact that the airline recorded an operating loss of 335 million pesos, according to its financial report.

In contrast, its operating income grew 12.9 percent, from 1,960 million pesos in the first quarter of 2018, to 2 thousand 212 million pesos in the same period of this year.

The company explained that this was achieved despite having a high base of comparison, derived from the seasonal effect of Holy Week, which in 2018 took place in the first quarter, while in 2019 it was in the second quarter.

Gian Carlo Nucci, CEO of Grupo VivaAerobus, said in the report that the increase was related to the fact that Easter this year mobilized more than 2.3 million passengers, an annual increase of 13.5 percent.

"This growing preference we have obtained since, in addition to being an option really available to all, we go a step further: we continually undertake actions that revalidate our focus on customer service".
