Boeing announced Monday that new Caribbean airline Arajet had ordered 20 of its 737 MAX aircraft and made reservations for an additional 15 aircraft.
Based in the Dominican Republic and with the idea of connecting destinations in North and South America, Arajet plans to build a fleet comprised solely of 737 MAX aircraft, following the example of U.S. low-cost carrier Southwest.
Dominican President Luis Abinader is scheduled to preside over the launch of the Dominican Airline (Arajet) on Monday.
The Dominican airline Arajet announced in February that it will be conducting test flights in Washington.
Arajet will be using state-of-the-art aircraft manufactured by Boeing in the United States and more details about the airline are expected to be announced when the first aircraft arrives in the country in the coming weeks.
