Interjet, in a short 5 years since its inaugural flight on December 5th 2005, has already achieved historical success in Mexico´s commercial aviation sector, thanks to its innovative strategy of offering high quality products and services at affordable prices. Its fleet is comprised of 31 Airbus A320 aircraft, serving 40 routes in 27 destinations, including two international destinations at Guatemala and Havana. According to official statistics, Interjet has achieved second place in total number of passengers transported (by market share) within Mexico, and as per publicly traded airline data, is one of the most efficient and profitable airlines, both in Latin America and around the world.
Through its hybrid business model (Low Cost Carrier – LLC) based on a strategy of combining higher quality service with efficient business practices, Interjet offers a superior product- making it the first airline in Mexico to achieve high quality service at an affordable price. This effective business strategy allows Interjet to satisfy the needs and requirements of diverse population sectors, and expands coverage to business and leisure market. For customer convenience, Interjet´s aircraft include a variety of useful amenities. Many of its airplanes are equipped to broadcast live take-off and landing video. With a capacity of 150 passengers each, Interjet´s Airbus 320 offers a superior coach class service with more legroom than any other Mexican airline.
As of January 2011, Interjet inaugurated its Training and Development Center for Pilots (Centro de Capacitación y Adiestramiento para pilotos – CAA), featuring an Airbus A320 Full Flight Simulator (FSS) at Zero Flight Time (ZFT), level D, making it the most advanced training center in Mexico. The CAA meets the certification requirements of Mexico´s DGCA, U.S. FAA and the European EASA.
Interjet is the first airline in Mexico and Latin America to implement the use of biofuels on its commercial flights. Biofuels have the potential to reduce up to 80% of CO2 emissions. Made from oils extracted from the seed of the Jatropha Curcas (a native Mexican plant), it is transformed into Synthetic Paraffinic Biokerosene (Bio-KPS). The biofuel is made of a combination 27% Bio-KPS and 73% traditional jet-fuel.
