Mexico’s Interjet cancelled all of its flights on Sunday and Monday, citing COVID19’s effect on cash flow and maintenance requirements. The carrier hopes to resume service on Tuesday, November 3.

Authorities say the carrier operates on a cash-and-carry basis for its jet fuel needs and, for the second time, has not made the necessary payments. As a result supplier Aeropuertos y Auxiliares (ASA) halted delivery of fuel to the carrier.

The company issued a statement on its website, admitting cash flow challenges owing to “negative effects caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.” The company also says “some of the company’s aircraft have entered into maintenance tasks, which has led to a restructuring of flight itineraries as of this date.”
All affected passengers are being rebooked to Tuesday’s flights and the company says 90% have been notified of the changes.
Interjet’s operations are significantly scaled back, with just 19 domestic flights scheduled on Monday that are now canceled. Historically the carrier operated more than 300 daily flights across Mexico as well as into the US, Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean.
