ABC Aerolíneas, S.A. de C.V., operating as Interjet, is a Mexican low-cost airline with its headquarters in Lomas de Chapultepec, Miguel Hidalgo, Mexico City, Mexico. The airline operates scheduled flights to Mexico (38), Caribbean (2), Central America (2), North America (9) and South America (2) out of Mexico City International Airport in Mexico City. It is wholly owned by the Aleman Group. It is one of the first regular low-cost airlines of Mexico and claims to offer the most extensive domestic network compared to its competitors.
The airline described itself as the "JetBlue of Mexico".
Interjet also operates several charter flights throughout the American continent, mainly in the Caribbean.
Interjet started operations on December 5th, 2005, with three Airbus A320 aircrafts, which had previously belonged to C.A.I. Second (then Volare Airlines). The airline placed an order for 25 new A320 aircraft to replace the second-hand ones, which was increased by another ten aircraft on January 10, 2010. After the demise of Mexico City-based competitor Aero California in August 2008, Interjet took over the vacant slots and established flight services to Mexico City International Airport in Mexico City.
On July 21, 2011, Interjet made the first flight in America (and the fourth worldwide) using biofuel , on the Mexico City – Tuxtla Gutierrez route, with an Airbus A320-200, registration XA-ECO.
On March 2, 2015, Interjet firmed 10 Sukhoi Superjet 100 options valued at $350 million. Interjet, the first Western airline to operate the Superjet, has 12 SSJ100s in service with a 13th delivered and ready to join the active fleet soon.
As of March 2015, Oneworld seems to be interested in Interjet becoming a member to fill the void left by Mexicana de Aviación. Several airlines have since begun codeshare agreements with Interjet. There would need to be many changes before Interjet could officially join Oneworld.
On February 23, 2012, Interjet started flights to its first U.S. destination to Miami International Airport from Benito Juárez International Airport.
On June 21, 2012, Interjet began flights to its second Central America destination to San José de Costa Rica from Benito Juárez International Airport.
On August 27, 2012, Interjet received permission to fly to John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California from Guadalajara International Airport in Guadalajara and Benito Juárez International Airport. The airline began daily scheduled flights on October 11, 2012. On June 13, 2014, Interjet announced that they will end John Wayne Airport flights on July 20, 2014.
Interjet intended to serve flights from Toluca to various cities in the United States, including O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas and San Antonio International Airport in San Antonio, as of 2013, only flights to Las Vegas and San Antonio had begun.
On June 10, 2014, Interjet and Iberia began a codeshare agreement on their flights.
On February 18, 2016, Interjet began service to Los Angeles International Airport from Guadalajara International Airport in Guadalajara. Interjet will be using Terminal 2 for its departures and arrivals.
Interjet flies between locations in Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Peru and the United States from its main hubs, Mexico City and Toluca. Interjet has also become a popular choice for surfers traveling to Mexico because of their baggage policy of not charging extra fees for those passengers transporting a surfboard. Max weight per passenger 110 lbs and 165 lbs with Priority Fare. Anything over that will have a fee of $5.00 USD per kg or $50 MXN pesos (2.2 lbs).
