Mexico-based Interjet Airlines is in the midst of a significant expansion push.
The airline said it woulld be expanding overall service through its Mexico City hub by 40 percent and officially establish Cancun International Airport as a major hub for the airline with over 378 weekly flights.
The airline is also adding new routes, increasing frequencies to existing markets and establishing peak day arrivals and departures for faster and more convenient connections, the company said in a statement.
“It was just one year ago we announced our new three-year strategic plan called Interjet 2021, Focus on the Future,” said Julio Gamero, Interjet’s Chief Commercial Officer. “A major pillar of that plan was committing ourselves to ‘Focus on the Customer’ and providing the products and services our customers deserved to make their leisure or business travel experience the best possible.”
“As an example, for our leisure travels to Mexico, we are scheduling arrivals and departures to coincide with check-in and check-out hours at major hotels and resorts,” Gamero said. “For our business travelers, we are now offering hourly departures on our most frequently traveled routes from 6 AM to 9 PM.”
“When you combine this with competitive prices, free checked bags on select fares, more legroom between seats and excellent on-board service, it’s easy to see why we’re the fastest-growing airline in Mexico,” he said.
