      Yet another airline will be flying in and out of Vancouver.

      This autumn the Mexican low-cost carrier Interjet will begin two-way service between Vancouver and Mexico City and Vancouver and Cancun.

      According to the Yucatan Times, an "affordable introduction fee" will start at US$194 from Mexico City and US$203 departing Cancun, beginning on October 26.

      Last year, Canada lifted a requirement for Mexicans to obtain a visitor's visa to fly into or through the country.

      Interjet was founded 12 years ago and is headquartered in Mexico City.

      It calls itself the "JetBlue of Mexico" and its frequent-flyer program gives members cash rather than points or kilometres.

      The company's fleet includes 48 Airbus A320 planes, 22 Superjet 100 planes, and three Airbus A321 planes.
