Enrique Beltranena, President & Chief Executive Officer, said: “Volaris' performance in the third quarter showed resilience, resulting in revenue growth. This growth was mainly due to increased passenger volumes and record-high ancillary revenue per passenger. We achieved this by maintaining strong cost control, especially when it came to non-fuel expenses.

Despite facing challenges related to Pratt & Whitney's GTF preventive accelerated inspections, Volaris is fully committed to ensuring the safety, financial stability, and long-term success of our airline. We are actively addressing the global issue of engine inspections affecting multiple airlines and are working closely with Pratt & Whitney to obtain the necessary technical support and financial compensation for the affected engines.

We’ve developed a mitigation plan to partially offset the impact. Our focus for 2024 is to maximize unit revenues and margins while optimizing our network to the best extent possible given the current environment.”

Total operating revenues in the quarter were $848 million, a 10% increase driven by robust demand across our network and a rise in ancillary revenue per passenger.

The load factor for the quarter reached 86.4%, representing an increase of 0.7 percentage points compared to the same period in 2022.

TRASM increased 1.8% to $8.37 cents in the quarter, helped by a stronger peso. The average base fare was $48, a decrease of 13%. Ancillary revenue per passenger was $49, a 26% increase.

CASM ex fuel increased 21% to $4.91 cents and adjusted CASM ex fuel increased 20% to $4.49 cents, primarily driven by a strong appreciation of the Mexican peso compared to the prior year.

Comprehensive financing result represented an expense of $73 million in the third quarter of 2023, compared to a $44 million expense in the same period of 2022. For the period, the average exchange rate was Ps.17.06 per U.S. dollar, a 16% appreciation compared to the same quarter of 2022.

2023 Guidance

  Updated Guidance Prior Guidance
2023 Guidance    
ASM growth ~10% ~13%
Total operating revenues ~$3.2 billion $3.2 to $3.4 billion
CASM ex fuel ~$4.8 cents $4.7 to $4.8 cents
EBITDAR margin ~26% 29% to 31%
Net debt-EBITDAR ratio6 ~3.5x ~2.8x

For the full-year 2023, CAPEX is expected to be approximately $300 million, net of financed fleet predelivery payments. This outlook assumes a full-year average USD/MXN rate of approximately Ps.17.75 and an average U.S. Gulf Coast jet fuel price of approximately $2.80 per gallon; it also assumes no significant unexpected disruptions related to COVID-19, macroeconomic factors, or other negative impacts on its business. The Company’s full-year 2023 outlook is based on several assumptions, including the foregoing, which are subject to change and may be outside the control of the Company. If actual results vary from these assumptions, the Company’s expectations may change. There can be no assurances that Volaris will achieve these results.

Fleet

During the third quarter, Volaris added two A321neo aircraft to its fleet, bringing the total number of aircraft to 125 as of September 30th, 2023. At the end of the quarter, Volaris’ fleet has an average age of 5.6 years and an average seating capacity of 194 passengers per aircraft. Of the total fleet, 58% of the aircraft are New Engine Option (NEO) models. Volaris plans to increase its fleet to approximately 127 aircraft by the end of 2023, considering an Airbus potential delay of at least two aircraft until 2024.

Supplemental Information on Non-GAAP Measures

We evaluate our financial performance by using various financial measures that are not performance measures under International Financial Reporting Standards (“non-IFRS measures”). These non-IFRS measures include CASM, CASM ex-fuel, Adjusted CASM ex-fuel, EBITDAR, Net debt-to-LTM EBITDAR and Total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investments. We define CASM as total operating expenses by available seat mile. We define CASM ex-fuel as total operating expenses by available seat mile, excluding fuel expense. We define Adjusted CASM ex fuel as total operating expenses by available seat mile, excluding fuel expense, aircraft and engine variable lease expenses and sale and lease back gains. We define EBITDAR as earnings before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization, depreciation of right of use assets and aircraft and engine variable lease expenses. We define Net debt-to-LTM EBITDAR as Net debt divided by LTM EBITDAR. We define Total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investments as the sum of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investments.

These non-IFRS measures are provided as supplemental information to the financial information presented in this release that is calculated and presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), because we believe that they, in conjunction with the IFRS financial information, provide useful information to management’s, analysts’ and investors’ overall understanding of our operating performance.

Because non-IFRS measures are not calculated in accordance with IFRS, they should not be considered superior to and are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related IFRS measures presented in this release and may not be the same as or comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies due to possible differences in the method of calculation and in the items being adjusted.

We encourage investors to review our financial statements and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission in their entirety for additional information regarding the Company and not to rely on any single financial measure.
