There is a $5 USD fee per kilogram for excess weight, but Interjet may refuse to carry any bag that weighs in excess of 30 kg (60 pounds).

The Airbus A320s passenger cabins contain 150 seats, with a generous 34 inch pitch between seats, which is similar to what some other airlines offer in their first-class or business class cabins. The Superjet 100s, which normally accommodate 103 passengers, are adapted with seating for 93 passengers, also allowing for a bit of extra legroom.

Frequent Flyers:

Interjet has a frequent flyer program called Club Interjet in which it rewards its members with cash instead of miles or kilometers. Members earn a 10% credit of the airfare cost in an electronic wallet which can be used to purchase more tickets or pay for services.
