Total operating revenue in the quarter was Ps.13,954 million, a 43% increase, driven by higher capacity, healthy load factors and stronger unit revenue per passenger. Moreover, demand remained relatively strong at the end of the quarter despite the increase of Covid-19 cases (Omicron variant) in our markets.

Volaris transported 7.3 million passengers in the quarter, an increase of 27%. Domestic and international passengers increased 29% and 19%, respectively; while total capacity, in terms of available seat miles (ASMs), increased 27% to 8.0 billion. Load factor reached 86.9%, slightly below pre-pandemic levels.

TRASM of Ps.176 cents represented a 13% increase. Average base fare was Ps.1,125, a decrease of 2%. Ancillary revenue per passenger was Ps.810, a 45% increase, due to the continued growth of new and traditional products, such as First Baggage, Seat Selection and More Flexibility. Ancillary revenue represented 42% of total operating revenue, compared to 33% in the same period of 2019. Finally, total operating revenue per passenger increased 14% to Ps.1,935.

For full year 2021, Volaris reported a total operating revenue of Ps.44,662 million, an increase of 29% as compared to 2019 levels. This performance demonstrates the Company’s ability to increase capacity while improving load factors and unit revenue despite the changing demand environment throughout the year resulting from the different waves of Covid.

Total operating expenses in the quarter were Ps.10,992 million, a 41% increase, driven by capacity growth and the incorporation of new fuel-efficient aircraft. The average economic fuel cost per gallon increased 16% to Ps.53.1 per gallon (US$2.58) in the period. CASM totaled US$6.60 cents, 3% higher when compared to same period of 2019. CASM ex-fuel increased 3% to US$4.08 cents.

For full year 2021, Volaris posted total operating expenses of Ps.36,596 million, an increase of 20% as compared to 2019 levels, driven by higher capacity growth and the incorporation of new aircraft to the fleet.

Comprehensive financing result represented a loss of Ps.3,632 million in fourth quarter of 2021, compared to a loss of Ps.164 million in the same period of 2019. This result was significantly impacted by a one-off, non-cash accounting charge related to the termination of a non-derivative financial instrument that generated a foreign exchange loss of Ps.2,251 million or US$109 million. Volaris determined that the currency which most reflects its operations is the US Dollar. As a result of this change, Volaris also concluded that the hedging strategies related to non-derivative financial instruments will no longer be effective and must be termination.

In the fourth quarter, the Mexican peso depreciated 8% against the US dollar to an average of Ps.20.75 per US dollar. At the end of the quarter, the Mexican peso stood at Ps.20.58 per US dollar, a 1% depreciation compared to the exchange rate at the end of the third quarter of 2021.

For the full year 2021, Volaris reported a comprehensive financing loss of Ps.5,352 million as compared to a loss of Ps.662 million posted in 2019. As mentioned above, in the fourth quarter of 2021, Volaris recorded a one-off, non-cash accounting charge of Ps. 2,251 million related to the termination of a non-derivative financial instrument as a result of the change in the functional currency as of December 31, 2021

Income tax benefit was Ps.400 million, compared to the expense of Ps.516 million posted in the fourth quarter of 2019.

For full year 2021, Volaris reported an income tax expense of Ps.594 million, compared to the expense of Ps.1,095 registered in 2019.

Net loss in the quarter stood at Ps.200 million, impacted by the aforementioned one-off accounting charge related to the termination of a non-derivative financial instrument of Ps.2,251 million or US$109 million, with earnings per share of negative Ps.0.17 and earnings per ADS of negative US$0.08. Adjusted net income (excluding the one-off related to the termination of a non-derivative financial instrument) reached Ps.1,559 million, a 21% increase, with adjusted earnings per share of Ps.1.34 and adjusted earnings per ADS of US$0.65.

For the full year 2021, Volaris posted a net income of Ps.2,121 million, equivalent to a 20% annual decrease, with earnings per share of Ps.1.82 and earnings per ADS of US$0.88. Excluding the one-time accounting charge associated with the change in the functional currency, adjusted net income reached Ps.3,879 million, a 47% increase compared to 2019. Adjusted earnings per share and adjusted earnings per ADS totaled Ps.3.33 and US$1.62, respectively.

EBITDAR was Ps.5,161 million, an increase of 45%, due to capacity growth, higher unit revenues, and effective cost control. EBITDAR margin was 37.0%, an increase of 0.5 percentage points.

For full year 2021, Volaris registered an EBITDAR of Ps.16,375 million, an increase of 53% compared to 2019, driven by improving our unit revenues and cost control discipline. EBITDAR margin was 36.7%, an increase of 5.9 percentage points.

Balance Sheet, Liquidity and Capital Allocation
During the fourth quarter, Volaris generated Ps.2,587 million in cash, including the issuance of its first sustainability-linked asset backed trust notes (VOLARCB 21L). As of December 31st, cash and cash equivalents were Ps.15,255 million or US$741 million, representing 34% of the last twelve months total operating revenue. Net cash flow provided by operating activities was Ps.5,090 million, while cash outflows in investing and financing activities were Ps.1,385 million and Ps.1,812 million, respectively. Positive net foreign exchange difference was Ps.694 million. On October 13th, 2021, Volaris issued successfully its first sustainability-linked asset backed trust notes (VOLARCB 21L) for an amount of Ps.1,500 million.

For full year 2021, Volaris generated Ps.5,152 million in cash. Net cash flow provided by operating activities was Ps.15,869 million, while cash outflows in investing and financing activities were Ps.2,731 million and Ps.8,828 million, respectively. Positive net foreign exchange difference was Ps.842 million.

As of the year, net debt was Ps.40,672 million, which included Ps.6,277 million of financial debt, Ps.49,650 million of leasing liabilities, less cash and cash equivalents of Ps.15,255 million. The net debt-to-LTM EBITDAR ratio was 2.5 times, compared to 3.5 times in the same period of 2019 and 2.8 times in third quarter of 2021.

As of December 31st, 2021, Volaris and its main subsidiary have changed their functional currency from the Mexican Peso to the US Dollar. According to IAS 21 the functional currency is the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates; in other words, the currency in which Volaris measures and records its transactions. As a result of the recent developments in the Company’s operational environment, the way it measures its business performance, the determination of the selling fares based on US Dollar, the increase of operations in the international market, and that most of Volaris´ cost is determined and denominated in US dollars, the Company concluded that the currency that most reflects its operations is the US Dollar. The change of this new functional currency was made on a prospectively basis with no restatement of previous periods.

Volaris believes the measurement of the financial information with the new functional currency will mitigate the impact of the Mexican Peso volatility over its financial results and improves the comparability with other companies in the market.

2022 Outlook
Volaris expects to continue with its disciplined growth strategy for the rest of the year. Assuming no significant unexpected disruptions related to COVID-19 or other macroeconomics impacts to the business, the Company expects to grow capacity (ASMs) in the mid-twenties compared to 2021. Furthermore, it expects total operating revenue in the range of US$2.6 to US$2.8 billion. Finally, the Company anticipates capex in the range of US$140 to US$145 million. This outlook assumes a FX USD/MXN of Ps.20.80 to Ps.21.10.

Fleet
During the fourth quarter, the Company incorporated seven new A320neo aircraft to its fleet. As of December 31, 2021, Volaris’ fleet was composed of 101 aircraft (6 A319s, 79 A320s and 16 A321s), with an average age of 5.4 years. Volaris’ fleet had an average of 187 seats per aircraft. 82% of its aircraft are sharklet-equipped and 45% are New Engine Option (NEO) models. The Company plans to end 2022 approximately with 115 aircraft.

On November 15th, 2021, Volaris signed a new purchase order with Airbus for 39 A321neo aircraft, in order to secure its growth in the second half of the decade. In addition to the acquisition of these 39 aircraft, Volaris agreed with Airbus to convert 20 aircraft in its current order contract from A320neo to A321neos.

Investors are urged to carefully read the Company’s periodic reports filed with or provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission, for additional information regarding the Company.
