MIAMI — Mexican low-cost carrier Interjet has announced a daily Cancun – New York flight, to start on September 1.

“We know Cancun is one of Mexico’s most important destinations and an international tourism attraction thus its connectivity is key to continue to encourage its growth and development. The new route will offer travelers the possibility of departing from New York, one of the world’s trade and finance capitals, as well as an air connection center, so they can enjoy the beaches, weather and entertainment of the Mexican Caribbean. With this we will contribute to the consolidation of the trade and tourism relationship between these two important destinations” said Jose Luis Garza, Interjet CEO.

The daily flights will have the following schedules (all local times):

  • Cancun-New York: Departing at 18:15, arriving at 23:00.
