American Airlines has signed a codeshare agreement with Mexico City-based Interjet, adding new service to key destinations in Mexico.
The new codeshare arrangement with Interjet will give American Airlines customers seamless connecting service within Mexico. American will codeshare on Interjet flights from Mexico City to five key destinations – Huatulco, Villahermosa, Merida, Tuxtla Gutierrez and Oaxaca. American and Interjet will submit an application to the U.S. Department of Transportation for regulatory approval of the proposed codeshare cooperation.
Over the past few years Interjet has grown substantially and operates more than 1,800 weekly flights to 38 cities throughout Mexico as well as destinations in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean.
The new agreement allows AAdvantage members to earn miles on codeshared flights operated by Interjet.
American has served Mexico for more than 72 years and currently operates up to 115 daily flights to 20 destinations in the country from Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia and Phoenix.
