Thousands affected as Interjet cancels more Cancun flights

Cancun, Q.R. — After accumulating five consecutive days on the ground, Interjet continues to cancel flights “until further notice” making an announcement Tuesday, that they have suspended flights until Thursday.

To date, the airline has accumulated 48 canceled operations to and from the Cancun International Airport, of which 40 correspond to operations between Cancun and Mexico City and eight to Monterrey.

The situation has left Interjet employees in limbo since the company has failed to comply with the financial commitments it had agreed to cover. More than 5,000 workers across Mexico, 150 of which are in Cancun, are being affected by the company’s messy state of affairs.

Since October, a notice from Profeco (Procuraduría Federal del Consumidor) has warned travelers about purchasing tickets with the airline. On their website, Profeco notes “alerts about the risk of establishing business relationships with Interjet, due to repeated breaches of legal provisions to the detriment of consumers.”
