The low cost airline AraJet put on sale the regular flights it will have between Buenos Aires and the Dominican Republic to take Argentines to the Caribbean and Central American destinations. The Dominican low cost airline confirmed on Thursday its landing after receiving authorization from the National Civil Aviation Administration (ANAC) to start operations in Argentina.
In mid-March, El Cronista had already anticipated the news after the company received the approval of the Dominican Republic’s Civil Aviation Board to fly to Buenos Aires. This will be the first time that the capitals of both countries will be directly connected through Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo and Ezeiza International Airport. The existing offer with the Dominican Republic is limited to the flights currently offered by Aerolíneas Argentinas between Buenos Aires and Punta Cana.
Although the ANAC resolution published in the Official Gazette did not detail the frequencies, this weekend the Dominican airline has already uploaded the tickets on its website. Promotional fares start at u$s 563 final (including taxes and fees round trip) and u$s 314 per leg (final price). These amounts include a personal backpack of up to 6 kilos on board.
As from November 14, the airline will connect the Dominican Republic with Buenos Aires with three weekly flights. Departures from the Central American country will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 5.55 pm local time with scheduled arrival at 3.05 am at Ezeiza. Departures from Argentina will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 04.25 a.m. with an expected arrival at 11.40 a.m.
From its Santo Domingo hub, Arajet will connect to destinations in the Caribbean and Central America, such as Punta Cana, Cancun, Mexico City, Aruba, Curacao, Kingston, St. Maarten, Barranquilla, Bogota, Cartagena, Costa Rica, Lima, Quito, Guayaquil, San Salvador and Guatemala City, among others.
