Interjet and YVR Celebrate New Service between Vancouver and Mexico

New air service provides nonstop flights between Vancouver and Mexico City and Cancun for leisure and business travelers

Today, Interjet and Vancouver International Airport (YVR) celebrated Interjet’s first flights from Vancouver, with nonstop service between YVR and Mexico City International Airport (MEX) and Cancún International Airport (CUN).

“Vancouver is one of North America’s fastest growing tourist destinations as well as a thriving business center,” said José Luis Garza, Interjet’s CEO. “Its majestic mountains, sparkling ocean waters, rainforests and natural beauty throughout all four seasons make it a natural getaway for Mexican leisure and business travelers. We’re also delighted to offer Vancouver travellers’ access to Mexico on our unique brand with lower prices, free checked bags on select fares, more legroom between seats and great service that has been embraced everywhere we fly,” he added.

The new service will contribute $16.3 million in total economic output, including adding 106 jobs to the B.C. economy and $8.6 million in Gross Domestic Product to the province. It also provides opportunities for B.C. businesses to reach new customers, suppliers and investors throughout Mexico and Latin America.

“We are thrilled that Interjet officially started service at YVR today. It is impressive that they launched to two cities in Mexico and we look forward to welcoming even more Interjet destinations in the future,” said Craig Richmond, President and CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “This gives travellers a great new service choice to these popular leisure and business destinations. Interjet’s extensive network also provides customers more options for travel throughout Mexico and the rest of Latin America.”

Interjet’s Vancouver services operate using Airbus A320 aircraft with 150 seats. The initial schedule is for four frequencies per week, per route, at convenient departure times.
