Air Century will resume flights to Pedernales to promote tourism development in the region.
The project will begin with two weekly flights departing from the Higüero airport to Cabo Rojo, Pedernales, on Mondays and Fridays at a cost of US$50 per trip.
After two decades of remaining a hidden and coveted gem, Bahía de la Águilas will begin to receive a greater tourist flow thanks to the launching of the commercial flight Santo Domingo-Cabo Rojo as part of the plan to promote the tourist development of Pedernales.
According to the executives, the project will start with two weekly flights departing from the Higüero airport to Cabo Rojo, Pedernales, on Mondays and Fridays at a cost of US$50 per single trip and a flight duration of 35 minutes.
Considering that with the implementation of the trips the distance to the deep south will be shortened, they stated that these domestic flights to Cabo Rojo are planned with the purpose of encouraging domestic tourism and attracting investments to this new destination that is being prepared for Dominicans and foreigners.
The project, which is being developed under the Pro-Pedernales Trust, executives and officials explained that domestic air transportation in the country is exclusively for national airlines, and that the number of flights under this modality is increasing as a sign of the strengthening of national operations.
The administrative director of Air Century, Carlos Jiménez, indicated that the two aircraft available for the flights have the capacity to carry 19 passengers.
Operations from the Joaquín Balaguer airport to Cabo Rojo will formally begin on November 1.
