Today is the day Interjet Airlines launches new nonstop service between Toronto’s Pearson International Airport and Mexico City’s Aeropuerto Internacional Benito Juárez (MEX), as well as to Cancun International Airport (CUN).
The airline is offering four flights a week between Toronto and Mexico.
“We’re delighted to be able to offer Mexico’s business and leisure travellers the opportunity to visit Toronto and experience its rich history and culture while at the same time, offer Toronto business and leisure travellers to Mexico, our unique brand of lower prices with free checked bags on select fares, more legroom between seats and great service that has been embraced everywhere we fly,” says Interjet CEO José Luis Garza.
The new service will operate using Airbus A320 aircraft seating 150 passengers. Roundtrip fares from Toronto to Cancun start at $409 and $499 to Mexico City.
“We are pleased to be welcoming Interjet to the Toronto Pearson family of carriers and know that the addition of their service will add great value for our passengers. The two routes, Mexico City and Cancun, will provide our passengers with a new option for travel to Mexico, be it for work or vacation,” said Lauren Yaksich, director, global hub development, long range airport planning and investment, Greater Toronto Airports Authority.
