As part of its expansion and growth plan, from 23 October Interjet will operate a twice-daily service between Monterrey and Houston from Monday to Friday, as well as one flight each way on Saturday and Sunday.
Responding to the news, Houston’s aviation director Mario Diaz said, "The Interjet team understands and embraces the competitive nature of the airline industry and we look forward to having them operate within the family of air carriers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport."
"What's remarkable about Interjet's new route is the focus on quality service at a lower price, considering that unlike other airlines, our passengers can travel without any extra charges on new, safer and more comfortable planes and with more space between seats," explained Interjet CEO Jose Luis Garza.
The airline operates a fleet of Airbus A320 family aircraft and Sukhoi Superjet 100s.
Houston will become the Mexican carrier’s fifth US destination.
