Air Canada and Interjet have announced the signing of a new interline agreement.

The agreement will cover services between the Canadian cities Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver and the Mexican destinations Mexico City and Cancun.

We are very excited to start the new year with this important interline agreement between Interjet Airlines and Air Canada. The growth of our business between Canada and Mexico has exceeded expectations and this is the next logical step to maintaining this success. Julio Gamero, Interjet's Chief Commercial Officer

An interline agreement allows passengers to purchase a single ticket for flights on either airline, as well as to connect at the airports served by both carriers and to check in baggage at their origination to their final destination.

Mexico’s third largest airline provides services to 53 destinations in eight countries from its bases in Cancún, Guadalajara, Mexico City, and Monterrey, whereas Air Canada (together with its regional partners) operates on average more than 1,600 scheduled flights per day. Therefore, both travellers to Canada and Mexico will benefit from the new agreement.
