Arajet to operate new service between Montreal and Santo Domingo

SANTO DOMINGO — Low-cost Caribbean airline Arajet has announced its second route to Canada, direct flights to and from Montreal and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

The new route will begin operations on Nov. 7, 2023 with 4x/weekly service at fares starting at US$155, one way, tax included. The carrier says there are future plans to include additional connections to other destinations in North, Central, South America and the Caribbean. 

“Arajet remains committed to the growth and expansion of our hub, especially now with Canada which is the second country of origin of tourists to the Dominican Republic, and with a diaspora of more than 50 thousand Dominicans who now have a national airline to visit their friends and family,” said Víctor Pacheco Méndez, CEO and founder of Arajet. 

“The citizens of Montreal and Santo Domingo have for the first time an airline that offers direct flights at the best market price, which will generate greater benefits for both countries by strengthening commercial and cultural exchange, as well as tourism,” he added.

Arajet, which began operations in the Caribbean in September 2022 from its base at Las Americas Airport in Santo Domingo, currently offers direct flights to 20 destinations in 14 countries, making the Dominican Republic the continent’s new low-price hub. The airline features a new fleet of Boeing 737 MAX-8 aircraft that reduces sonic pollution by up to 40%.
