Interjet’s international passenger numbers continues to grow despite US competition

5 September, 2017

The Mexican LCC Interjet has held a unique position in the market since its inception during the mid-2000s, along with the more traditional low cost airlines Volaris and VivaAerobus. Interjet has operated as more of a hybrid airline, offering more seat pitch than its fellow low cost competitors, and complimentary food and beverages.

Airlines boogie on down to US ‘music cities’

British Airways (BA) has confirmed it will operate a five times weekly London Heathrow-Nashville service, effective May-2018, with Boeing 787-8 equipment. This is overtly an inward flight promotion, encouraging Tennessee travellers to journey to London or to one of 130 onward destinations that BA offers at Heathrow, and one that should also support British business efforts in and around Nashville, which claims to have one of the fastest growing economies in the US. It means there will be 26 US cities directly accessible by BA flights from London in summer 2018 (though there is only one in the UK directly accessible from the US – London).
