IDAC unveils more than 35 new flights to connect DR with USA, Canada, Europe and Latin America

The director of the Dominican Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC), Román Caamaño, revealed that the institution is in the process of certifying three airlines that will operate more than 35 new flights to connect the Dominican Republic with cities in the United States, Canada, Europe and Latin America.

Caamaño said that the new flights will connect the country with cities such as Washington, New Jersey, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Tampa, Orlando, Providence, Montreal, Mexico, Lima, Bogotá, Cali, Medellín, Panama, Havana, San José, Guatemala, Puerto Príncipe, Aruba, San Martín, Curaçao, Madrid and Lisbon, among other destinations.

The companies in the process of certification are Logic Pak, a partner of Sky Cana, which is already operating as a Dominican airline; Evelop, of the Barceló Group, based in Madrid and Lisbon; and ARAJET, product of a merger with DW Dominican Wings.

The IDAC director stated that the new airlines will have a notable impact on the strengthening of tourism, as well as on the creation of new jobs, mainly for technicians, flight attendants and specialized personnel in the aeronautical sector.

On another matter, the director of the IDAC valued the importance of the agreement signed within the framework of FITUR 2022, between the president of the Civil Aviation Board, José Marte Piantini, and the director general of Civil Aviation of Spain, Raul Medina Caballero, which updates the air transport agreement signed between the two countries 54 years ago and which had to wait 12 years for its formalization.

He added that this agreement will have a positive impact on the recovery and growth of national tourism, as it will expand direct flight connections between various Dominican air terminals and cities in the United States, Canada, Europe and Latin America.
