Mexican airline Interjet has recently introduced a raft of new routes from Mexico City Juarez International including three pairings featuring the carrier’s latest fleet addition – the Sukhoi Superjet 100 – a 93-seat jet that Interjet is banking on for penetration into Mexico’s thinner markets and possibly international service.
In some ways the introduction of the SSJ100 marks a new era for Interjet, which has rapidly grown to become the second largest domestic carrier behind Grupo Aeromexico. The addition of a new fleet type is somewhat of a gamble given the SSJ100’s unproven track record. But Interjet appears willing to roll the dice in order to solidify its competitive standing among the four largest Mexican carriers. The carrier is devising strategies to capture the air travel demand developing among the country’s growing middle class who are opting for cheap air travel in lieu of taking their journeys by bus.
Mexico’s domestic market recorded double-digit growth in 2012 for the first time in five years and only the second time this century. The Mexican aviation industry has reached its healthiest point since deregulation led to the launch of five low-cost carriers seven years ago. The market now features a strong legacy airline group and three LCCs which are seeking to cash in on their relatively strong positions by holding initial public offerings.
Mexican carriers flew 28.1 million domestic and 5.9 million international passengers in 2012, according to newly released statistics from Mexico’s DGAC. Domestically the market grew by 10% while the much smaller international market grew by 23%. Foreign carriers serving Mexico recorded much more modest growth of 3%, but still dominate Mexico’s international market with 21.2 million passengers carried in 2012.
Rapid growth among Mexico’s three low-cost carriers – Interjet, VivaAerobus and Volaris – helped drive international passengers transported by Mexican carriers up 42% year-over-year during 1Q2012 as those airlines further expanded into US transborder markets and introduced new flights from Mexico to Central America and the Caribbean.
Mexico’s airlines transported 1.3 million international passengers during the first three months of this year compared with 924,916 during the prior year period, according to data from Mexico's DGAC. Interjet had the most dramatic growth, increasing its share of Mexico's international market (among Mexican carriers) from zero to 5.8% year-over-year. Interjet launched its first international flights last year and now operates from Mexico City to Guatemala, Havana, Miami and San Antonio and from Toluca to San Antonio.
Interjet currently operates 12 weekly roundtrip flights with Airbus A320s from its main base at Mexico City to San Antonio and three weekly flights from Toluca, where the carrier has its headquarters, maintenance facility and a smaller base.
