Save on a last-minute spring break trip with Interjet. Flights to Mexico are claimed to be up to 90% off the base fare for travel through April and up to 80% off travel through January 2021, including flights to Central and South America. Even though we take this language with a grain of salt, there are still some incredible deals for travel throughout the year starting from just $174 roundtrip.

Best of all, some of these deals are available over Semana Santa and Easter weekend! If you're unfamiliar with Interjet, rest assured that this is a comfortable flight with a seat pitch similar to JetBlue and free in-flight drinks. I've recently flown the airline for the first time and had a great experience.

Travel Availability

  • Travel Period: March and April for the lowest fares on most routes. Flights in the fall are also discounted.
  • Travel Days of the Week: Daily, but will vary by route.
  • Blackout Dates: No listed blackout dates. However, the lowest fares are generally not available around Easter in April or for peak summer travel between late May and August.

Sale Period

Tickets must be booked by March 13, 2020, or while supplies last.

Sample Fares

All fares listed below are nonstop except San Fran to Mexico City, which requires an overnight layover in Guadalajara.

This is not a comprehensive list of deals. Nearly all nonstop routes on Interjet have deep discounts and you may also see some deals on connecting flights throughout Mexico or to Central and South America.

For more deals to Latin America, have a look at all of our fares, on all airlines, to Mexico City (MEX), Cancun (CUN), Guadalajara (GDL), Monterrey (MTY), Guatemala (GUA), San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO), Bogota (BOG), and Lima (LIM).

Baggage

These "Ultra Light" fares include two pieces of carry-on luggage with a max combined weight of 22 lbs. Checked bag fees start at $30 each way when booked online.

Seat Selection

Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.

Alternate Fares

Don't be fooled into upgrading to Interjet's "Light" fare. It is pretty much never worth it for flights between the U.S. and Mexico. There is no difference in your baggage allowance on these routes. For flights within Mexico (such as flights from Tijuana airport near the border with San Diego), and flights to/from Central and South America, the "Light" fare does include one free checked bag, but the price difference is much more than it is to simply add checked baggage a la carte to the "Ultra Light" fare. The only other difference between the "Light" and "Ultra Light" fares is slightly lower change fees. Again, not worth the difference in cost.

If you're in the San Diego area, make sure to check out flights from Tijuana (TIJ), which you can access directly from the U.S. side of the border via the Cross Border Xpress bridge.

As an example, I found flights for travel during Semana Santa and Easter weekend, departing Houston IAH on Tuesday, April 5, returning from Mexico City MEX on Monday, April 13, for $210 roundtrip.
