The Dominican Republic’s new discount airline, Arajet Airlines, has just received permission to offer regional jet service to six more countries in the Caribbean and South American. As well, Arajet is working to establishing landing rights in the US in the US and hopefully Canada.
Arajet has received the go-ahead from its civil aviation board to establish routes to fly to Brazil, Honduras, Belize, Barbados, Trinidad, and Guyana beginning later this year. The airline, which only began operating last year already has 18 routes across Latin America and the Caribbean.
While it does have permission from the Dominican Republic to service these new destinations, it still needs to obtain the necessary permissions from each of the new airports. Arajet expects that will happen in the very near future.
The routes are as following: Brazil: São Paulo Guarulhos, Rio de Janeiro Galeão International and Manaus International; Honduras: San Pedro Sula International; Belize: Belize International; Barbados: Bridgetown International; Trinidad & Tobago: Port of Spain Piarco International, and Guyana: Cheddi Jagan International Airport.
