Interjet has begun flight operations to Houston, Texas, with its inaugural flight connecting George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Monterrey International Airport (MTY) in Mexico.
The airline is offering two daily flights from Monday to Friday and one daily flight on Saturdays and Sundays. The inaugural flight from Monterrey received the traditional water cannon salute and a welcome celebration featuring dozens of well-wishers.
"With these new flights, Interjet strengthens its international presence by connecting two of the most important cities in terms of international business. Monterrey and Houston are key destinations to the expansion of our airline and passengers can enjoy all the benefits they will receive flying with us," remarked Interjet CEO Jose Luis Garza.
Depending on demand, the airline will feature service aboard its 150-seat Airbus A320 or its 93-seat Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, with passengers departing from the Mickey Leland International Terminal (Terminal D) at IAH.
