Sky is not new airline, they have been flying long ago the lesser islands, they was working only with travel agencies, after Pawa bankrupcy they wake up and are opening more destinations, now you can book online also www.skyhighdominicana.com. They have base in SDQ. Also Air Century is opening more destinations but flying from JBQ in Santo Domingo too.

Does $400 RT seem about right for a flight to PR? Seems still pretty high. Are there heavy taxes on the DR side? or on the US side? The flight can't be much more than 1/2 hour?

So RT would still be about $40 cheaper and is with a REAL airline.

If you read the article you will see that is not flying to SJU, San Juan is almost in the west side of Puerto Rico and Sky is flying to the east coast of Puerto Rico, so for those people living arround there will be good option as they wont need to go all the way to San Juan to travel.

So it won't be good for tourists looking to go to San Juan. Sounds like another loser to me.

Well remember in PR live a lot Dominicans, so will be a good option for them no need to go to San Juan and for visitors intrested in that area.

I wouldn't fly with them. They have a poor safety record. A few years ago, one of their Piper Cherokees crashed in a golf course off Punta Cana, killing all on board.

I have also witnessed several maintenance practices on that Beech 19 that would make me stay away.

Well they fly every day to diferents destinations, if they really have bad maintenance for sure something will be happening ever month.
