On Tuesday (June 11, 2024), Boeing announced that Arajet has taken delivery of their 10th Boeing 737-8 MAX.  The leased aircraft will help support the carrier’s growth strategy throughout the Americas, as they plan to more than double their route network over the next few years.  Launched in 2022, Arajet has since grown their all 737 MAX fleet to serve 23 destinations across 16 countries, including Canada, Mexico and Argentina. 


In Tuesday’s announcement, Arajet’s Founder and CEO,  Victor Pacheco Méndez, said,


“This tenth aircraft is unique, not only because it has a special Dominican ribbon painted on the fuselage, but because it will increase the number of connections we make with the continent.  We are reaffirming our commitment to democratize the skies and be able to connect all our countries with the lowest possible prices.”


Also commenting on the aircraft delivery, Boeing’s VP – Commercial Sales for Latin America and the Caribbean, Mike Wilson, said,


“The versatility and efficiency of the 737 MAX supports Arajet’s commitment to provide safe, affordable travel for its customers.  By introducing the 10th 737-8 to its fleet, Arajet reaches an important milestone as the airline further connects the Dominican Republic with the rest of the Americas.”


The Boeing 737-8 MAX has a range of up to 3,500 nautical miles, allowing Arajet to operate some of the longest routes in the region, connecting the Caribbean to North and South America.  Powered by CFM International LEAP-1B engines, and equipped with advanced technology winglets, the 737 MAX Family reduces fuel use and emission by 20 percent compared to previous generation airplanes, while delivering a 50 percent smaller noise footprint.


Commencing operations in September 20222, Arajet is the first low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Caribbean region.  The airline operates out of their base at Las Americas Airport in Santo Domingo, under an airline operator certificate (AOC) from the Dominican Republic. Arajet operates an all-Boeing fleet of 737-8 MAX jets, serving the Caribbean region and the Americas.
