Arajet, the youngest low-fare airline in the Caribbean region, announced today that by the end of 2022 it will be considered the leading airline in the Dominican Republic, having transported 81,000 travelers from September 15 to December 31. By 2023, Arajet expects to offer more than 500,000 seats to passengers from North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
“I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time,” said Victor Pacheco, CEO and founder of Arajet. “Since Arajet officially began operations in September, thousands of Dominicans who had never flown before have been able to do so. We are very excited to focus on continuing our positive impact to attract tourists from destinations that have never been directly connected.”
Arajet’s arrival in the Dominican Republic has a major impact on tourism. Compared to previous years, the number of travelers to the region increased significantly as these routes were introduced in 2022.
Arajet, which has opened 17 destinations since its launch in September 2022, is the only airline in the region to start operations with brand new, high-efficiency aircraft. “We expect to double our fleet of Boeing 737MAX8 aircraft by 2023, while maintaining our performance according to our growth plan and providing Dominican travelers with new flight options, lower fares and better service,” commented Pacheco.
In keeping with its mission to democratize aviation, Arajet recently launched several alliances and products. For example, it has embarked on an alliance with PagaTodo that allows residents of the Dominican Republic to purchase airline tickets and pay in cash at any of PagaTodo’s 1,500 post offices throughout the country. In addition, the airline recently introduced Arabonito, a corporate bonus that allows companies to reward employee performance with the purchase of airline tickets or services.
Arajet is the first low-fare airline in the Caribbean region, which began operating in September 2022 from its base at Las Americas Airport in Santo Domingo, under its Dominican Republic Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC). Arajet will operate a new fleet of Boeing 737MAX-8 aircraft offering safe and affordable travel to and from the Dominican Republic to various destinations in North, Central and South America, and the Caribbean region.
