Arajet, the low-cost airline of the Caribbean, has announced new routes from Toronto and Montreal, Canada to Buenos Aires, Argentina. The flights will start on October 24 and November 7, respectively, and will offer Canadians a more affordable way to travel to South America.
This is the latest in a series of expansion announcements from Arajet, which has also recently launched flights to Sao Paulo, Brazil; Santiago de Chile; Cartagena and Medellin, Colombia; and several Caribbean islands.
‘Democratizing the Skies’
“Arajet is committed to democratizing the skies of the region,” said Víctor Pacheco Méndez, CEO and founder of Arajet. “We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to travel, and we are working to make air travel more affordable and accessible.”
In addition to the new routes to Toronto and Montreal, Arajet will also offer a connection hub in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
This will allow passengers to connect to other destinations in the Caribbean, Central America, and South America.
Arajet’s flights are operated on new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which offer passengers a comfortable and modern travel experience. The airline also offers a variety of amenities, including free checked bags and in-flight entertainment.
Arajet is the first low-fareairline in the Caribbean region and started operations in September 2022 from its base at Las Americas Airport in Santo Domingo, under its airline operator certificate (AOC) from the Dominican Republic.
Arajet will operate a new fleet of Boeing 737 MAX-8 aircraft that provide safe and affordable travel to and from the Dominican Republic to several destinations in North, Central and South America, and the Caribbean region.
The airline now offers more than 120 connections between North, Central, and South America. In May this year. The carrier undertook a mass expansion plan; bolstering its route network connectivity with increases to 42 round-trip connections to 9 countries.
A major boost for Canada
The latest announcement of Canada – Argentina connections becomes the latest development for its Canadian network sector.
Last month the airline announced the launch of its connecting flights from Pearson International Airport in Toronto to several Caribbean destinations, including Cartagena, Medellín, Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Marten, Kingston, and Sao Paulo.
The launch of these Caribbean services from Toronto is also timed to commence in unison with the new Argentinian routes in October.
There is a significant demand for air travel from Canada to the Caribbean and Argentina. The depreciation of the Canadian dollar and the availability of budget airfares have made these destinations more affordable for Canadians.
In addition, the Caribbean and Argentina are popular tourist destinations, with many attractions to offer visitors. In 2021, there were over 10 million air passengers traveling from Canada to the Caribbean.
In 2022, there were over 5 million air passengers traveling from Canada to Argentina.
