Emirates expands partnership with Mexico's Interjet

Dubai’s Emirates and Mexico’s Interjet Airlines have announced an enhanced interline agreement to open new routes and destinations for passengers travelling between Mexico, the Gulf, and the greater Middle East, the airlines have announced.

With a single ticket, Emirates’ passengers can now seamlessly connect through Mexico City to Internet flights to a number of Mexican cities, including Culiacan, Cancun, Chihuahua, Tijuana, Puerto Vallarta and Monterrey.

“We’re pleased to establish a partnership with Interjet Airlines, allowing Emirates passengers to benefit from increased choice, flexibility and ease of connection to different cities within Mexico and to regional international points beyond,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ chief commercial officer.

“This partnership further demonstrates our commitment to Mexico for the long run, as we continue to look at ways to build our operations in the market to best serve our customers,” Kazim added. “While the interline agreement is only the start of our collaboration, we’re looking forward to explore more mutual opportunities and a wider scope of partnership in the near future.”

Emirates’ partnership with Interjet first began in April, with a one way interline agreement allowing passengers from Emirates 12 US destinations to travel to Mexico City on Interjet flights.

With the expanded partnership, passengers will now be able to tap into Interjet’s 12 domestic destinations within Mexico, as well as 15 regional international destinations beyond Mexico City.

“Since our initial interline agreement in April 2019, Interjet’s relationship with Emirates has truly been a success,” said Julio Gamero, Interjet’s chief commercial officer.”

"This enhanced agreement, provides travelers from both airlines access to a broader network not only with more flight choices, but for Emirates customers, access to more of Mexico with our many domestic connections from Mexico City,” he added.

Emirates will launch its daily service from Dubai to Mexico City via Barcelona on December 9.
