Low-cost Dominican Republic based airline, Arajet is expected to apply soon to the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority to begin serving the Guyana market.
Officials at the GCAA have told News Source that while an application has not yet been filed by the airline, requests have been made about the application process and requirements for service to the local market.
Last week, the airline sought and got permission from the Dominican Republic’s Civil Aviation Authority to begin service to a number of Caribbean destinations, including Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, Barbados and Guyana.
With that hurdle crossed, the airline will now seek approval from the various states to begin schedule services between the destinations.
The airline, which was founded in 2014, officially began operations last September and currently flies to 17 destinations in 11 countries.
It has been praised for offering cheaper services between its Caribbean and Latin America destinations. The airline currently operates with a fleet of five aircraft.
