Arajet starts selling tickets from $149 between El Salvador and the Dominican Republic

The low-cost airline Arajet began selling tickets for its new destination between El Salvador and Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic, with prices starting at $159.

Arajet is a new Dominican capital airline that will start operations on September 15 with its flight between Santo Domingo and Mexico City, to later incorporate destinations with El Salvador, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala and several Caribbean islands.

The first flight from the San Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport and Santo Domingo will begin operations on September 17 with two weekly frequencies, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

The departure itinerary from El Salvador is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. (local time) to arrive in Santo Domingo at 11:55 p.m. Instead, from the Dominican Republic it would leave at 4:30 p.m. to land on Salvadoran soil at 7:45.

One-way tickets start at $94.01 and return tickets start at $54.99, including taxes, on the official Arajet website.

“We promised low prices, and we are going to have rates never seen before,” said Víctor Pacheco, president of Arajet.

Álvaro de Oleo, Vice President of Marketing at Arajet, pointed out that the first phase of marketing includes 5,500 seats with prices between $55 and $100, each way. In addition, there will be temporary promotions and then prices will be regulated, but “in all cases we will ensure that it is the lowest rate on the market.”

Arajet is the new competitor in the segment of low-cost airlines in the Salvadoran market, a niche where Volaris maintained its leadership with flights to Central America and the United States, along with the American Spirit Airlines and recently Frontier.
