Arajet took delivery of its third Boeing 737 MAX and disclosed its first 23 destinations



Arajet is getting ready to start operations with the arrival of its third Boeing 737-8 this week. In addition, the company announced its first 23 destinations.

The new aircraft arrived in Santo Domingo (SDQ), Dominican Republic, on the night of June 30, from Boeing’s Seattle plant. It is registered HI-1081 and was named «Jaragua» in homage to the national park of the same name, joining «Pico Duarte» (HI-1026) and «Valle Nuevo» (HI-1027). Two additional MAXs with the same 189-seat configuration will be added soon.

Arajet will also be the first customer in the Americas for the Boeing 737-8200, the high-density version of the MAX that can accommodate up to 210 passengers, with an order for 20 aircraft and an option for 15 more.

Arajet is expected to generate more than 4,000 direct jobs and some 40,000 indirect jobs over the next five years. In addition, they plan to transport 7 million passengers per year, making it the largest company in the history of the Dominican Republic.

Approaching the start date of operations

Arajet is considered the first low-cost company in the Dominican Republic and will be focused on connecting new markets from the Dominican Republic and reinforcing the tourist movement that characterizes the country.

The company filed 116 routes in its Certificate of Economic Authorization (CAE) for its future operations. With the third aircraft arrived and the granting of its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) last June, it will be able to establish more precisely its network of destinations.
