Arajet has become Felipe Ángeles International Airport (NLU) largest international airline by passengers carried since launching operations in September 2022. From the beginning of Arajet’s operations in Mexico in September 2022, Arajet transported 14,944 passengers, leading international passenger traffic and making the Dominican Republic the airport’s top international destination.

Isidoro Pastor, general director of Felipe Ángeles International Airport, commented: "We are happy to have Arajet among the international airlines that operate at AIFA. Its direct route to Santo Domingo strengthens cooperation and exchange ties between Mexico and the Dominican Republic." 

Víctor Pacheco Méndez, CEO and founder of Arajet, said: “We are very proud of our footprint in Mexico. Mexico is the second commercial partner of the Dominican Republic, and Arajet has managed to crystallize our mutual interest in strengthening economic, tourist and commercial exchange."

Arajet operates its route to Mexico City with four weekly frequencies on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays with a fleet of five new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft that save 14% more fuel than single-aisle aircraft on the market and generate 40% less noise pollution.

Arajet has already inaugurated 17 destinations of its initial network and connects Santo Domingo with direct flights to Mexico City and Cancun in Mexico; San Jose in Costa Rica; San Salvador in El Salvador; Guatemala City in Guatemala; Lima in Peru, Quito and Guayaquil in Ecuador; Aruba, Curaçao, Jamaica and Saint Martin in the Caribbean; and Cali, Barranquilla and Cartagena in Colombia.
