Cancun, Q.R. — Tickets are currently being sold for a new Cancun airline connection. Low-cost airline Arajet is now selling tickets that will connect its Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic route with Cancun, Mexico City and Monterrey.
The airline says they are hoping to connect the national Caribbean traveler with new tourist and commercial experiences, turning it into a hub for the Americas.
The first flight is scheduled to arrive in Mexico City on September 15 at the Felipe Ángeles International Airport (AIFA), with three weekly frequencies. By the end of the same month, it will start operations in Cancun and Monterrey.
Víctor Pacheco, president of Arajet and the Minister of Tourism, David Collado, reported that “the airline will mark the rebirth of Dominican aviation and will bring Mexican visitors closer to Caribbean destinations. It is projected that in a period of approximately five years, it will move more than 7 million passengers per year.
“We promised low prices and we are going to have rates never seen before in our country,” said Pacheco.
He added that “starting September, we will begin the journey to convert Las Américas International Airport into the new Caribbean Air Hub and connect the continent at the lowest cost with world-class services, new and the most efficient aircraft on the market.”
