Interjet (Mexico City) officially began flight operations in Houston, Texas today (October 23) as the airline celebrated the landing of its inaugural flight connecting Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Monterrey International Airport (MTY) in Monterrey, Mexico.
The airline will now offer passengers a choice between two daily flights Monday through Friday and one daily flight on Saturdays and Sundays. The inaugural flight from Monterrey arrived in Houston at 7:55 a.m. to the traditional water cannon salute and a welcome celebration featuring dozens of well-wishers.
The arrival of Interjet is the latest example of an unprecedented level of growth for international air travel in Houston. George Bush Intercontinental Airport is currently on pace to see more than 10 million international passengers in 2014, a number never reached in the facility’s 45 year history.
Interjet Aircraft Slide Show:
It’s sad that you always mention the aircraft type but this time, when it is Russian SSJ-100. Even worse giving tags for the aircraft that is not announced for the route (according to Airline Route).
The inaugural flight was an Airbus A320.
OK, sorry. I wonder why? More passengers on an inaugural flight?
