NEW YORK, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Interjet, Mexico's second largest air carrier and a growing presence in the U.S.-Mexico market, today launched its first service from New York (JFK) to Mexico City. The daily flights add a third gateway city in the United States for Interjet, which already operates out of Miami and San Antonio.
Highly respected for its extensive service throughout Mexico, New York represents the airline's sixth international hub. In addition to the three U.S. cities, Interjet flies to Guatemala, Havana, and San Jose, Costa Rica.
The JFK service departs from New York at 7:25am Monday through Friday and 10am on Saturday and Sunday. Return flights leave Mexico City at 4:40, arriving at JFK at 10:30 pm.
To celebrate the inaugural service, Interjet is offering a round-trip fare starting at $349. This promotional offer is valid for travel as of August 2nd, and it includes two suitcases up to 55 lbs each until August 31st.
Interjet earned its reputation as one of Mexico's most successful airlines based on numerous passenger-pleasing flight and service features. Interjet is known for its high quality service at competitively affordable prices as well as its excellent safety record. With 35 new A320 aircraft, the youngest fleet in the country, the airline has put the customer first with such decisions as removing 30 seats to create maximum comfort for 150 guests as well as serving complimentary meals and premium beverages during flights between Mexico City and New York. Interjet also offers transferable tickets, an appealing frequent flier loyalty program, in-flight entertainment program, an unrestricted 20 percent discount year-round for seniors and special amenities for female travelers, including women-only toilets on all airplanes. In contrast with other carriers, there is no extra charge for passengers to select seats or check up to 110 pounds of baggage per ticket. Interjet does not overbook its flights and has no hidden fees in the ticket purchase prices; the price offered by the airline is what the customer pays, including all taxes.
As it continues to broaden its presence in the international market, Interjet also has demonstrated its financial stability by continuing to invest in new equipment, recently completing the purchase of 20 Superjet 100 aircraft.
