Injerjet announced that they will fly non-stop from Mexico City to DFW airport.  The service begins on March 3, 2016.

While DFW Airport already has non-stop service from the Mexican capital by multiple carriers, the new Interjet flights will be a unique addition to the skies over North Texas.  Interjet operates a fleet of  97-seat Suhkoi Superjet 100-95B.  The Russian-built aircraft are rare over US skies.  Interjet is the only North American carrier to fly the aircraft.  While the jets are rare in Western skies, they represent a new generation of Russian built aircraft.  Interjet’s aircraft feature western avionics, modern engines along with slimline seats and LCD monitors.

According to the press release, the flights will operate twice daily except for Saturdays, will have the following schedule: The Mexico-Dallas Fort Worth route will depart at 12:00 p.m. and arrive in Dallas Fort Worth at 2:30 p.m. The second flight will depart at 6:45 p.m. and land at 9:15 p.m. Return flights are scheduled for 6:15 a.m., landing in Mexico City at 8:45 a.m. and the second flight will depart Dallas Fort Worth at 3:30 p.m. and arrive at 6 p.m.

“With these new flights, Interjet will boost its presence in the United States and contribute to consolidate the strong business and pleasure relationship between our countries and one of Texas’ largest and most visited cities”, said Interjet CEO, José Luis Garza.
