Frank Diaz, CEO of Sky Cana, informed that they will offer 18,189 seats monthly on the twice weekly flights on the route that will link New York with Santo Domingo and Santiago.
The flights will be operated by Air Century starting on December 2 and will use a state-of-the-art Airbus A330 aircraft, with a 24-seat configuration for business class and 275 seats in economy class; and to promote the country, the aircraft carries the name “Co Dominican Republic”.
Diaz assured that their fares are competitive and the ticket includes hand luggage and the first bag; and additionally the right to transport up to 4 additional paid suitcases.
“We do not come to compete with the traditional airlines that fly from Santiago and Santo Domingo, we come as Dominicans to serve our people, offering them a warm and dignified service, with the human warmth they deserve, with the best attentions and that smile that only Dominicans can offer them,” he said.
To carry out the operations Sky Cana joined the two main airline operators in the Dominican Republic: Air Century and Sky High.
“For the first time in the history of Dominican aviation, we managed to join forces with the two main airline operators, in a strategic alliance with which we will rescue the positioning that the Dominican Republic should have as an Air Hub of the Caribbean,” said the airline executive.
In giving details of the route, at an event at the Embassy Suites by Hilton hotel, the CEO of Sky Cana introduced Omar Chain, president of Air Century, as its allied operator for the routes to the United States; and in the case of the Central and South American routes, he introduced Juan Chamiso, president of Sky High Aviation Services.
