Sky Cana clarifies its operations to the United States

Operated by Avion Express Malta

Sky Cana (Santo Domingo) issued this statement:

Sky Cana formally clarifies that flight operations to and from the United States are being carried out through a strategic alliance with Air Century, where Air Century is the air operator, operating under its AOC, Sky Cana acting as a ticket agent, is up to at the moment, a commercial brand, not an authorized airline for this type of operation.

Indeed, as Sky Cana we are doing all the pertinent governmental and permitting procedures so that when the time comes to operate under our own AOC.

We apologize for the confusion this may have caused the consumer and government entities.
