New Dominican airline Arajet to fly to Mexico

The new Dominican airline Arajet will start operations in May, and Mexico is on the list of the eleven countries to which it will fly.

The low cost airline will be operating at least 30 routes under the authorization of the Dominican Republic’s Civil Aviation Board (JAC).

Arajet will be considered the flag carrier of the Dominican Republic, initially flying to the Caribbean and Latin America, and later expanding its connectivity to Europe.

The United States is one of the most important markets for the Dominican Republic, so it will serve the cities of:

New York
Fort Lauderdale

“First of all, without competitive routes and fares the Dominican Republic cannot compete or meet the expectations of the new tourist. Therefore, Arajet will help us to be able to serve markets that, due to price and availability of direct routes, still have service gaps,” said Luis Abinader, president of the new airline.

With the new airline, the Dominican government expects to increase the number of international visitors, as they also contribute to the country’s economic recovery.

It is worth remembering that with the tourist card implemented by the General Directorate of Internal Taxes (DGII) the collection was US$62 million 620 thousand in 2021. With the tourist card, travelers no longer require a consular visa to enter the Dominican Republic. The document costs US$10.
