New air route joins the Carrasco Airport: it will be possible to fly non-stop to the Dominican Republic

Starting in November of this year, it will be possible to fly from Montevideo to Santo Domingothe capital of the Dominican Republic, without making stops, since a new airline joins the routes of the Carrasco International Airportreported to Coffee & Business Remo Monzeglio, interim Minister of Tourism.

The Arajet company, which is based in Santo Domingo, has a fleet of five Boein 737/8 MAX, and will connect Uruguay “with a country with which we traditionally did not have direct flights,” he said.

The announcement of the beginning of this new air route is made this Thursday at the Embassy of the Dominican Republic, in which the authorities of the Ministry of Tourism will be present.

Uruguay in the sights of the airlines

Monzeglio stressed that having a new route of this type is something “very positive”and that there is currently a high demand for flights (mainly from Uruguay abroad) but that there is also great interest from companies from other countries to reach Uruguay.

As he commented, the ministry is in talks with several airlines, such as Mexico and Italy.

Currently there is a great demand for air travel, so much so that for July holidays there are few seats available to travel to Argentina, one of the destinations in the region most sought after by Uruguayans. Regarding that, Monzeglio said that it is a situation that occurs because “Uruguayans have a much higher purchasing power in dollars than those of the region, they are leading and that allows them to travel.”
