Dominican Wings (Santo Domingo) was in business from February 5, 2016 until May 15, 2018 when it rebranded as flycana after an ownership change.
The carrier originally targeted 2020 as the start of operations but that was been delayed to 2021, now it is 2022.
flycana has now rebranded again as Arajet due to a possible name conflict with Sky Cana.
According to the new airline, AraJet will be a low-fare airline for travel on direct flights to and from the Dominican Republic. It plans to operate from the second half of 2022.
Now the first Boeing 738-8 MAX 8 (the pictured HI026, msn/ln 60195/8035), named Pico Duarte, has been painted by Boeing at Renton pending delivery.
