PHOENIX (AP) - A Mexican airline will be adding more direct flights to Phoenix this fall.

Phoenix officials announced Wednesday that Volaris airline will offer flights between Hermosillo, Mexico and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport twice a week starting in November.

Vice Mayor Daniel Valenzuela says the flights will mean a greater connection to one of Phoenix’s top trading partners.

Volaris is Mexico’s second largest airline.

According to an Arizona State University study, international flights are credited with creating 15,000 local jobs and foreign visitors spend $388 million locally each year.
