Fareportal | December 30, 2022
The Dominican Republic's newest national carrier, Arajet, is now being offered for flights by CheapOair and OneTravel, the first online travel agencies in the US to do so.
Arajet is the newest low-cost carrier in the Dominican Republic. It began operations on September 15 and has already launched a route network that spans a wide range, with 18 destinations in 11 different countries. With plans to transport more than 7 million passengers over the next five years, the airline will contribute to an increase in tourism throughout the region, which will result in the creation of thousands of jobs in the area. There are currently flights departing from Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Peru, Jamaica, Aruba, St. Maarten, and Curacao that arrive in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. More flights are scheduled to depart from other countries in the near future.
Fareportal is of the view that Arajet selected these brands as the OTA platforms to introduce their expanding route network to U.S. travelers, knowing that Fareportal will support them with industry-leading technology and an unwavering dedication to exceptional customer service.
Arajet stated that it is pleased to collaborate with Fareportal as well as its online travel agencies, CheapOair and OneTravel. In order to provide the Dominican diaspora with the most affordable travel options to see friends and family, the company plans to open 17 new destinations in the United States in the upcoming months. Additionally, the company thinks this alliance will propel its vision.
Experts in the aviation sector believe that low-cost carriers (LCCs) are ideally placed for growth. In 2021, three new carriers debuted in the United States, and more than 20 are anticipated to do so globally in 2022.
Fareportal, developing industry-defining technology since 2002, has emerged as a travel technology leader. With offices in New York, Canada, India, Las Vegas, Mexico, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, the company caters to over 2,500 people across nearly five time zones.

On February 21, 2023, Sansa Airlines (SANSA), a domestic airline in Costa Rica, partnered with GO7 to enhance its inventory management, passenger experience, distribution, and growth support across multiple channels. Through the partnership, it will use GO7's AeroCRS solution for reservations, flight or fare management technology and inventory management.
GO7 is a travel technology company dedicated to the travel brand's transformation, supporting SANSA's growth and distribution strategies across the Central American region. With its support, the airlines would improve its services, providing more passenger options. In addition, it will enhance the company's agility in response to the demand trends. This integration has resulted in the relaunch of the airlines' travel service between San Jose and Managua in 2022 and an expected new connection to Panama in 2023.
SANSA has selected GO7's AeroCRS solution, replacing its previous passenger service system with more modernized modular technology stack services. This replacement has made it more flexible with its travel routes, advanced passenger service and capacity. It deploys the AeroCRS solution as an online distribution platform for its flight inventory, making it more visible for online travel agencies (OTAs) and metasearch engines, accelerating its customer reach. The solution supports its growth strategy and establishes it as a more reliable airline in Central America.
Managing Partner of SANSA, Julio Caballero, said, "Partnering with GO7 complements our growth and expansion plans perfectly." He added, "Throughout the onboarding and implementation process, our team has enjoyed exemplary communication with the GO7 team; they've listened to all our needs and delivered solutions, and the training process was thorough and efficient. We look forward to growing our operation and increasing passenger volume with the help of GO7's purpose-built and unique solutions."
