RED Air adds its first A320: Caracas-Miami link with stopover in La Romana

Dominican airline RED Air celebrated on February 2 the arrival of its first Airbus A320ceo, under a wet-leasing agreement with Gallistair Malta.

The aircraft, registered as 9H-VDS, is destined to replace the McDonnell Douglas 80 Series in the airline’s fleet. Aged 21.9 years, the aircraft initially operated for Volare Airlines from 2002 to 2004, subsequently moving to MyAir (2005-2007), TAM (2008-2014) and VIVA Colombia (2014-2021).

RED Air as a member of the LASER Airlines Group based in Venezuela, is responsible for passenger transportation between Caracas and Miami, with a brief stopover in La Romana.

LASER previously operated the segment between Caracas and La Romana, which will now be served by RED Air’s 180-passenger Airbus A320, providing a weekly offering of 2,520 seats. LASER Airlines will continue to manage ticket sales for this route.

While RED Air currently retains three McDonnell Douglas MD-82s in its fleet, it anticipates adding another Airbus A320 through the same wet-leasing arrangement.
