Arajet reapplies to operate flights to Cuba

The Civil Aviation Board (JAC) informed that Arajet has requested authorization to operate flights between Santo Domingo and Havana, Cuba.

The Dominican airline is no stranger to the destination, having previously applied for it under the amendment to the Certificate of Economic Authorization (CAE) 25.

The new request is part of an agreement between the two countries to improve air connectivity, according to AviacionOnline.

This change authorizes each contracting party to designate one or more airlines to operate on the agreed routes with the established frequencies and capacities.

Currently, three airlines are authorized to connect Santo Domingo/Las Americas with Havana: Sky High Aviation, Sunrise Airways Dominicana and Cubana de Aviación. However, only Sky High operates the referred route with four weekly flights. In addition, Air Century connects Havana from Santo Domingo/La Isabela (JBQ) with four weekly flights using CRJ 200 aircraft.
