Low Cost Carrier


Arajet (formerly Flycana) is a proposed ultra low cost Dominican carrier to be based at Santo Domingo Las Americas International Airport. The start-up has an initial investment of USD60 million and seeks to be established as the first ultra LCC in the country. By 2023, Arajet expects to fly to 50 destinations with more than 25 aircraft, transporting 6.5 million passengers per year. It planned to launch commercial operations in late 2020 using Dominican Wings' AOC, but later postponed plans to commence operations in 2Q2021.

Flycana submitted a request to Junta de Aviacion Civil to change its name to Arajet in Sep-2021.

In Mar-2022, Arajet announced plans to commence operations in Spring 2022 with a fleet of 737-8200s. The start-up ULCC plans to add service to North American destinations including New York, Boston, Miami and Chicago later in 2022.
