Arajet has just received its ninth jet to continue to serve the many non-stop routes in the Americas covered by the airline.

The ninth Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft was named “Bahia de las Aguilas” for the protected beach area in Jaragua National Park in Pedernales province. The area is now opening up to mass tourism with the construction of hotels in the nearby Cabo Rojo beach area and the opening of the Port Cabo Rojo for cruise ship arrivals.

Arajet connects the Dominican Republic to destinations in the Caribbean, Central America, South America and Canada. The airline has requested permission to fly to the United States.

Boeing 737 Max has been in the news a lot lately
Arajet is using Max 8's,the plane recently in the news was a Max 9. I have flown both many times without issue. Flying is proven to be the safest mode of transportation by far.

Boeing used to be the airline for quality design and engineering.

It is sad to see the decline caused by management decisions.
This has let to a decline in client and passenger confidence.

The DR and SDQ needs more international non stop connections with leading airlines and connections to Asia.
Daily connecting flights from SDQ to POP are also needed.
A turbo prop small plane could provide this.



The DR/Arajet would do well to purchase used single aisle Airbus aircraft, for short haul flights.


New efficient planes could also be a cost effective option.
Many airlines are purchasing these planes also for huge fuel savings on operating costs.

I meant aircraft manufacturer, in regard to Boeing.

The problem is Boeing management having many aircraft orders and pushing design and manufacturing for faster deliveries.
The worst that can happen, is for clients and passengers losing confidence.

Both Boeing and Airbus have many orders and can not fulfill deliveries in the short term.

For the DR small market a coherent strategy is needed, in regard to purchases, maintenance pilot and crew training.
I'm sure with better non stop international connections and some domestic flights, the DR could increase tourism with a more affluent clientele.
