SAN BERNARDINO >> For the first time since it was decommissioned as a military airport more than 20 years ago, San Bernardino International Airport is selling tickets for international commercial flights.

Volaris, an ultra-low cost Mexican carrier, announced Monday that tickets are available for flights to and from Guadalajara, Mexico.

Starting June 29, the flights will be Mondays and Thursdays, starting at $99 — including taxes — one way, according to Volaris.

• One set of flights will depart from Guadalajara at 3:41 p.m. and arrive in San Bernardino at 5 p.m.

• A second set will depart from San Bernardino at 6:15 p.m. and arrive in Guadalajara at 11:25 p.m.

The announcement was one of two new routes Volaris announced Monday, along with twice-weekly flights between Oaxaca and Los Angeles.

“The launch of these new routes strengthens our presence in the Greater Los Angeles Area and provides our customers with additional options for visiting relatives, business travel and leisure,” said Holger Blankenstein, chief commercial officer of Volaris, in a news release. “We strive to combine affordable fares with routes that previously featured no scheduled air service. These additions help us achieve our goal of increasing connectivity between Mexico and the U.S.”
