SANTO DOMINGO - Air Century, leader in regular flights to the Caribbean from the Dominican Republic, announced on Wednesday the new route to Havana, Cuba and the incorporation of two modern 50-seat Bombardier CRJ200 jets equipped with state-of-the-art technology to serve their main routes in the Caribbean.
"The strategic plan for the expansion of our services, which has been carried out in accordance with the goals we set five years ago, is strengthened with the next start of the direct flight from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to Havana, Cuba and the incorporation, starting this November, of two new Bombardier CRJ200 aircraft that will allow us to cover the growing demand for our services for the destinations we already serve in the Caribbean," said Omar Chahin Lama, CEO and founder of the airline.
"An essential part of this plan is the consolidation of the Hub of the Caribbean, the hub of our operations from La Isabela International Airport, Dr. Joaquín Balaguer, for which we have formed 4 groups of flights a day to allow quick and easy connection of our passengers to the different destinations we serve," he added.
The new route to the charming and stately city of Havana, Cuba, begins on December 13 with two weekly flights on Thursday and Sunday. This new direct service will be a major support for the promotion of cultural exchange, tourism and business with the sister island of the Antilles.
