During the first quarter of 2022, Dominican Republic set a record, moving 5,160,661 passengers by air in and out of the country, “which represents half of those transported throughout 2021,” reported the president of the Board of Civil Aviation (JAC), José Ernesto Marte Piantini, during the ninth ordinary session of this year’s plenary session of that body.

Marte Piantini also said that “after twenty arduous months of joint work with national and foreign airlines, airport operators, and other actors that come together in the civil Aviationthe country registers 17,638,644 passengers mobilized by air to and from Dominican territory from August 17, 2020 to April 30, 2022.

The president of the JAC explained that these numbers “are the result of the open skies policy carried out by the organization, which seeks to increase the number of airlines, frequencies and routes to and from the Dominican Republic“.

“The air market liberalization policy promoted by the Government of the Republic seeks to make it more open and competitive for passenger and cargo traffic,” said the president of the JAC during his speech before the members of the plenary.

The president of the body responsible for establishing the superior policy of the civil Aviationstated that “the commercial aviation industry plays an important role in contributing to economic growth and facilitating activities that improve the country’s productivity.”

He added that in order to continue strengthening air connectivity, the JAC submitted for public hearing the request to amend the Frontier Operating Permit to include the Tampa/Santo Domingo/Tampa and Tampa/Punta Cana/Tampa routes.

This operator is authorized to offer passenger, cargo and mail air transport services on 29 routes from the United States to the Dominican Republicand plans to start operations on the Tampa/Santo Domingo/Tampa routes in June 2022, in Airbus A320 neo (32N) type aircraft, with capacity for 186 passengers, with a frequency of two flights a week, on Thursdays and Sundays on the route Tampa / Santo Domingo.

While on the Tampa/Punta Cana route, operations are planned for the same date, but with a frequency of one flight a week, on Saturdays.

The air operator estimates that, for the period from June to December 2022, approximately 10,230 passengers will be transported on the Tampa/Santo Domingo route.

Meanwhile, for the Tampa/Punta Cana route, it is estimated that 2,232 passengers will be transported during the same period.

Likewise, after being known in a public hearing, the plenary approved the request for an amendment to the World 2 FLY Operating Permit to include the Madrid/Santo Domingo/Madrid route. Likewise, it approved the request for an amendment to the Operating Permit in favor of the foreign air operator British Airways to include the London/Antigua/Punta Cana/Antigua/Londres route, without traffic rights in the Antigua/Punta Cana section.

The president of the JAC informed that they remain committed so that the growth of the civil Aviation do not stop.
