Le Chili et la RD réduisent la distance avec un vol direct trois fois par semaine

This Monday, Caribbean low-cost airline Arajet celebrated the arrival of its inaugural flight to Santiago de Chile, establishing a direct air connection between the Chilean capital and Santo Domingo, the capital city of the Dominican Republic.

Since entering the market in September 2022, Arajet has carried more than 450,000 passengers. Now, it offers Chileans an exciting opportunity to connect through its Santo Domingo hub, with access to an impressive 22 destinations spanning 15 countries in the region. This includes connections to places as diverse as Canada, Mexico, Colombia and Costa Rica, among other notable destinations.

A notable feature of Arajet’s flights is that they will operate with a frequency of three flights per week, scheduled on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This provides Chilean travelers with additional flexibility when planning their getaways to exotic destinations in the Caribbean and Latin America.

The Dominican Republic’s ambassador to Chile, Fausto Liz, emphasized the importance of this new route stating that “this new service will contribute to the strengthening of commercial and tourism ties between Chile and the Dominican Republic”. This route not only promotes tourism, but also supports the growth of commercial relations between both countries.

Manuel Valencia, Deputy Manager of Communications and Corporate Affairs of Nuevo Pudahuel, emphasized that this new route not only offers a convenient way to reach the Dominican Republic, but also establishes a bridge that will strengthen tourism, academic, cultural and commercial ties between South America and Oceania with the Caribbean. This connection is achieved through two airports that are part of the Vinci Airports network.

Manuel Luna, Arajet’s Chief Communication & External Affairs Officer, shared the airline’s vision of positioning itself as a global brand backed by Bain Capital and Griffin Asset Management. With an investment of approximately US$3 billion to expand its fleet to more than 40 aircraft in five years, Arajet is striving to consolidate its position as the low-fare airline of choice for Latin Americans.

Arajet’s arrival in Chile marks an important milestone in the expansion of travel options between South America and the Caribbean, giving Chilean travelers the opportunity to explore a wide range of exciting destinations in the region. This new service promises to revolutionize the international travel landscape from Santiago, Chile and strengthen ties between Chile and the Dominican Republic.
