Beginning in October, travelers will be able to fly nonstop from Phoenix to Guadalajara for about the same price as a bus ticket, the chief executive of discount airline Volaris told The Arizona Republic Thursday.

The airline is mainly targeting Arizona’s large Mexican-American population, many of whom often travel by bus to visit relatives in Mexico but now will be able to take advantage of “ultra” cheap airfares, said Enrique Beltranena, CEO of Volaris. 

The airline will offer flights from Sky Harbor International Airport to Guadalajara, Mexico’s second largest city, three times a week beginning on Oct. 19, and every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday after that.

For its first flights, the airline is offering a special promotional fare of $129, including taxes, from Phoenix to Guadalajara.

In comparison, a one-way bus ticket from Phoenix to Guadalajara on Tufesa, a Mexican luxury bus line, is $170 according to the Tufesa website.
