Interjet chief executive Jose Luis Garza says he is confident that his low-cost carrier will be ready to start daily services to Southern California from Mexico City and Guadalajara by the end of the year, even though the airline has yet to narrow down one destination from its list of three potential airports.

The three contenders for the new service are San Bernardino International Airport, LA/Ontario International Airport and John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California.

The low-cost carrier is still deliberating its choice of airport, but Garza says that the airline could operate routes to one of those three destinations from Mexico City and Guadalajara by as early as mid-September.

Even if the process moves more slowly, Garza says he is still confident that Interjet will have entered the southwestern US market by the end of the year.

Interjet currently flies to San Antonio, Miami and New York from Mexico City.
