Interjet, a low-fare Mexican carrier, landed its inaugural flight at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Thursday.
The airport welcomed the airline with its usual “shower of affection” water cannon salute. Interjet will operate two daily flights from DFW to Mexico City.
“As travel to Mexico continues to flourish and now represents just over 40% of DFW’s international passenger travel, there’s an even stronger need to provide choices that accommodate flexible schedules and varied price points,” said airport CEO Sean Donohue in a statement. “Interjet offers travelers low-fare flights to exciting destinations, and DFW Airport is pleased to now be part of that network.”
The daily flights will depart at 6:15 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and Interjet will use a Superjet 100 aircraft on the route.
