On 21 April Interjet celebrated the launch of its first service from Mexico City to Orlando Sanford Airport in Florida with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Mexico. At the other end of the route there was an impressive multi-tiered cake for passengers to enjoy on the inaugural flight back to Mexico City.
- Interjet has begun two new services to US airports in the last couple of weeks using its A320s. On 21 April the Mexican carrier began four times weekly flights on the 2,081-kilometre route from Mexico City (MEX) to Orlando Sanford (SFB) in Florida. No other airline operates this airport pair, although Aeromexico, JetBlue Airways and Volaris between them offer 28 flights per week between Mexico City and Orlando’s main airport. This summer, Interjet will serve 47 destinations from Mexico City, an increase of four versus last summer. All four of the new routes are international, with two additional destinations in the US (Dallas/Fort Worth and now Orlando Sanford), one in Cuba (Varadero) and one in Peru (Lima), which starts on 5 May. A week later on 28 April Interjet launched its third route to Las Vegas (LAS), this time from Guadalajara (GDL). The 2,076-kilometre route will be flown six times weekly and is already served by Volaris with nine weekly flights. Interjet already serves Las Vegas from Monterrey and Toluca, though Toluca flights are set to end at the beginning of May.
