Our aircraft

Viva Aerobus have the most modern fleet of aircrafts which have HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters to reduce the spread of pathogens through recirculated air. These filters extract more than 99.99% of fungus, bacteria and viruses, no matter how small they may be, including coronavirus.
Our entire fleet is constantly disinfected and sanitized with additional cleaning procedures and chemical products approved by Mexican and international authorities, which help stop the transmission of diseases such as COVID-19.
As part of this process, to improve ventilation, aircraft doors remain open while on the ground.
