The Cuban Company of Airports and Airport Services (ECASA), located in Boyeros in the Cuban capital, informed this week through its social networks the flight schedule between Cuba and the Dominican Republic for the month of September.
So far, Air Century will operate in September from Santo Domingo, Dominican capital, with two frequencies, on Tuesdays 7 and 21, arriving in Havana at 9:15 am and departing the same day, at 10:45 am.
Since last January, the Quintana Roo airline reduced its connections with the island by decision of the Cuban government due to the increase of cases coming from that nation, which is used by Cuban travelers as a territory for shopping tourism. Since then, connections are restricted to twice a month.
The route between Santo Domingo and Havana is operated by one aircraft, HI1000 (msn 483). Radar data show that the first flight was operated on July 8, 2021, from Santo Domingo “Las Americas” to Havana International Airport and vice versa. So far, the aircraft has been used exclusively on the route to Cuba and operates under Air Century’s Y2 code.
Air Century is an airline founded in Santo Domingo in March 1992 by Captain Pilot Omar Chahin Lama. It currently operates scheduled flights to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Aruba, Curaçao, St. Maarten, Havana and charters to the entire Caribbean area.
For the start of the winter season in the Dominican Republic, more than 1,400 flights are expected to arrive through the country’s main international airports. Among the airlines arriving in the country are Wingo, Copa Airlines, JetBlue, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, Delta Airlines, Air Canada, American Airlines, British Airways, Air France, Edelweiss Air, Air Europa, Condor and many others.
