JetBlue Airways and Mexico-based InterJet Airlines have announced a new interline agreement.
The agreement means passengers can purchase one ticket for combined flights on both airlines, and check their bags through to their ultimate destination.
The move opens up many new gateways for travelers to Mexico, thanks to JetBlue’s broad national and regional presence and InterJet’s strength within the country.
“We are very excited to announce another very important bilateral interline agreement between Interjet and JetBlue,” said Julio Gamero, Interjet’s Chief Commercial Officer. This partnership will allow passengers from both airlines access to more amazing destinations across the U.S., and Mexico while JetBlue business and leisure travelers will be able to experience our unique brand of lower prices with free checked bags on select fares, business class legroom between every seat and great service.”
InterJet is in the midst of an expansion push, with plans to add more service through its hub in Mexico City and, more importantly for the Caribbean, to position Cancun as a leading hub for the carrier.
