Arajet, the Dominican low-fare airline, closed a commercial agreement with the Eurodistribution platform to make its tickets to 17 destinations in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean available to IATA and non-IATA agencies, OTAs, aggregators, metasearch and consolidators in the five continents.
The Eurodistribution platform belongs to the Euroairlines aviation group and has more than 30 years of international experience, which will allow Arajet to develop the three main levers of its development: markets, channels and connectivity with other operators, all through the IATA code Q4-291.
“We are very pleased with our alliance with Eurodistribution” noted Victor Pacheco, CEO and founder of Arajet. “This agreement will accelerate Arajet’s recall, growth and profitability worldwide.”
Arajet will be marketed by 2023 through Eurodistribution in 60 international markets accounting for more than 90% of global demand; in the three major GDSs (Amadeus, Sabre and Travelport), on B2B platforms such as Travelfusion, HitchHiker or KIU, and direct integrations via API, while developing partnerships in virtual interline as well as with regional GDSs and exploring the possibility of incorporating airfreight.
“Clearly Arajet has appreciated in our value proposition the total adaptability to the customer. In any of our divisions and services, we try to prioritize and meet the needs of our customers at a level that our competitors do not reach. Some examples are: attention in local time and language, exclusive dedicated staff, opening markets or channels on demand, execution of the client’s commercial strategy, among others,” said Antonio López Lázaro, CEO of Euroairlines Group.
Arajet operates with a fleet of 5 new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft 8 direct flights from its base in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, to 17 destinations in 11 countries, including Mexico City and Cancun in Mexico, Guatemala, San Salvador and San Jose in Central America; Bogota, Medellin, Cali, Barranquilla and Cartagena in Colombia, Quito and Guayaquil in Ecuador; and Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten and Jamaica in the Caribbean.
Through this alliance, Arajet will gain access through Eurodistribution to real and virtual connectivity with third parties without the need for additional implementations, optimizing its distribution costs.
Arajet is the first low-cost airline in the Caribbean region that began operations 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 providing safe and affordable travel to and from the Dominican Republic to various destinations in North, Central and South America and the Caribbean region.
