Pan American World Airways Dominicana (PAWA Dominicana) announced the FAA has cleared it to fly to Puerto Rico from Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo. The airline will become the first to fly Dominican-registered commercial aircraft to the US following the FAA giving green light after a 14-year ban. Juan Carlos Fernandez, president of the board of PAWA, announced flights to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico using aircraft with capacity for 19 passengers, with a rate of US$99 plus taxes. The airline has plans to fly to Miami and New York next. At present, the airline flies to Port au Prince, Curacao, Aruba, Venezuela, St. Martin and Jamaica.
