Interjet has formally announced the start of operations for its direct Monterrey -Houston – Monterrey service starting on October 23, with two daily flights Monday through Friday, and one daily flight on Saturdays and Sundays. This new service strengthens the company’s plan of expansion and growth, thus consolidating its presence in the American market.
Houston is the main tourist destination in Texas; it’s the fourth largest city in the United States and has a substantial medical infrastructure. In addition, it is considered the energy capital of the world, as well as the world’s number one city in aerospace development. With world-class museums, shopping centers, and ample hotel offerings, Houston is one of the most economically dynamic cities in the country.
Monterrey, for its part, is one of Mexico’s most industrially developed cities, and one of the country’s main centers of business, with significant hotel infrastructure.
As Interjet CEO Jose Luis Garza noted, “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.”
“Houston already enjoys greater connectivity with Mexico than any other country in the United States and that bond is going to be even stronger with the arrival of Interjet,” says Houston Mayor Annise Parker. “The City of Monterrey is extremely important to the Houston region for both economic and cultural reasons and this new nonstop flight makes it easier for our residents to strengthen business ties and maintain close connections with family and friends.”
For his part, Mario C. Díaz, Houston Aviation Director, noted: “Houston passengers continue to enjoy the benefits that inherently come with increased competition and that’s especially true for passengers boarding international flights,” adding, “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.”
