Arajet to begin operations at Punta Cana International Airport

Punta Cana.- Dominican low-cost airline Arajet and the Puntacana Group announced on Sunday that Arajet flights will begin operating from Punta Cana International Airport starting November 1st.

Frank Elías Rainieri, Executive President of the Puntacana Group, and Víctor Pacheco, Founder and President of Arajet, highlighted the significant impact this partnership will have on increasing passenger numbers for Arajet and boosting tourism in the eastern part of the Dominican Republic.

Pacheco stated that Punta Cana International Airport will become Arajet’s second base, allowing the airline to connect this popular tourist area with its extensive network of destinations and over 200 connection combinations. The primary base for Arajet will remain at Las Américas International Airport in Santo Domingo.

“We are committed to ensuring that Arajet continues to be the airline for all Dominicans. That is why we aim to operate from all airports in the country, providing opportunities to travel to various destinations at the lowest market prices,” Pacheco added.

Rainieri expressed gratitude to Arajet for choosing Punta Cana Airport and involving them in their expansion plans, which will promote tourism and economic growth in the country.

“We are delighted to welcome Arajet as commercial partners to our airport community. We are confident that this alliance will be successful. With these new routes, we continue to expand our network of destinations and connections internationally, positioning ourselves as the most important airport in the Dominican Republic,” Rainieri said.

Punta Cana Airport handles 68% of the country’s tourist air traffic, connecting with 75 cities in 34 countries through 58 airlines, and serves over 9 million passengers annually.

Arajet’s specific destinations from Punta Cana will be announced at a later date.

Arajet was the leading Dominican airline in terms of passenger movement in the first four months of 2024, accounting for 8% of total passengers transported in the country last May.
