Low-cost Mexican carrier Volaris released its monthly "flights on the fly" flash sale today. This time, May 2020 flights are on sale for as low as $143 roundtrip from US airports to Mexico.

- Travel Days of the Week: Scattered travel dates depending on the route.

This sale officially ends at 11:59 pm CT, November 13, 2019, but seats are selling out quickly.
Nonstop Flights to Mexico City (MEX) for $176 roundtrip
Nonstop Flights to Guadalajara (GDL) for $162 roundtrip
Nonstop Flights to Leon/Guanajuato (BJX) for $161 roundtrip
Nonstop Flights to Other Cities in Mexico from $143+ roundtrip
This is not a complete list. All nonstop routes on Volaris to Mexico have some incredible deals today. You must be very flexible with travel dates to get these prices.
These roundtrip prices include the $29 USD non-resident fee for flights to Mexico. Price will be about $29 less for Mexican passport holders or others exempt from this fee.
These basic fares include two full-size carry-on bags, but there is a weight limit of 22 lbs total between these two bags. If you think your carry-on bags look heavy enough to actually get weighed at the airport, you can purchase extra weight allowance for your carry-on bags starting at $24 each way when booked online. Checked bag fees start at $38 each way.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.
Volaris also sells bundled classic and plus fares, but you will likely find that simply adding any extra service you need to the basic fare will be cheaper than purchasing a bundled fare.
Flights within Mexico are also on sale for $299 MXN pesos (~$15 USD) one-way, which could allow you to combine a few one-way flights and see a few different cities in Mexico at these ultra-low fares. And if you're in the San Diego area, make sure to check out flights from Tijuana (TIJ), which you can access directly from the U.S. side of the border via the Cross Border Xpress bridge.
