MEXICO CITY — Interjet Airlines is expanding its reach in Canada with a newly signed interline agreement with Air Canada.
The agreement will cover travel between Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver with Mexico City and Cancun, and give customers the added convenience of purchasing a single ticket for flights on either airline, checking baggage at their origination to their final destination, and gaining access to easy connections at the airports served by both carriers.
“We are very excited to start the new year with this important interline agreement between Interjet Airlines and Air Canada,” said Julio Gamero, Interjet’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The growth of our business between Canada and Mexico has exceeded expectations and this is the next logical step to maintaining this success.”
Gamero also noted that the agreement will allow Interjet to offer expanded services to Canada. “Our commitment has been to offer our business and leisure travellers everywhere we fly, our unique brand of lower prices with free checked bags on select fares, more legroom between seats and great service,” he said. “With this agreement, we can expand this service to more of Canada.”
The news comes on the heels of Interjet’s appointment of William Shaw as its new CEO. The agreement will also complement Interjet’s YVR-Mexico service, which launched in October 2017.
