The company plans to establish a wide network of routes to 20 destinations in 12 countries in its first three months of operations, which will include the Mexican capital, Monterrey and Cancun, as well as other destinations to Aruba, Colombia, Curaçao, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, the island of St. Martin and Peru.
Arajet, the Dominican Republic’s new low-cost airline, will start operations in mid-September with a flight to Mexico City, after which it will add other destinations in that nation and in more than a dozen countries in the Americas, the company announced on Monday.
Arajet’s president, Víctor Pacheco, estimated that in about five years, the airline will transport some seven million passengers annually.
“Starting in September, we will begin the journey to turn Las Americas International Airport (in the Dominican Republic) into the new air hub of the Caribbean, which will allow us to connect the continent at the lowest cost,” Pacheco said in a statement.
