Interjet continues to cancel flights into Cancun

Cancun, Q.R. — Another 10 flights inside Mexico were canceled by Interjet Monday. For the third day in a row, Interjet suspended its scheduled flights into the Cancun International Airport.

The Federal Consumer Prosecutor’s Office (Profeco) reported that 3,756 passengers have been affected by the company’s 62 canceled flights since Saturday. In a statement, Profeco head Ricardo Sheffield Padilla said that the airline has attributed its failure due to operational needs.

Airport managing company AUSR noted that Interjet’s Sunday flights were canceled due to lack of an on-time fuel payment.

Sheffield Padilla recalled that on November 3, the attorney general’s office issued a risk alert for passengers establishing a business relationships with Interjet due to repeated breaches of legal provisions.

“This year, as of last weekend, Profeco had 1,542 registered complaints against this airline of which 904 remain pending,” he said.
