Arajet secures second place for ch-aviation’s North America’s youngest aircraft fleet award 2024

Arajet, the low-price airline of the Caribbean, which recently was awarded Best Startup Airline of the world at the World Aviation Summit, today announced that it won two new international awards for the modernity of its aircraft fleet. ch-aviation, the world’s leading airline intelligence provider, recognized Arajet as the airline with the second youngest aircraft fleet in the Americas and as the third youngest fleet worldwide.

According to ch-aviation, only Lynx Air, with an average of 2.81 years old, has a younger aircraft fleet in the Americas than Arajet, which has a fleet with an average of 2.93 years old. The World’s Youngest Aircraft Fleet of the World ranking was led by Starlux Airlines followed by Lynx Air, Arajet, Vistara and JetSmart.

Victor Pacheco, CEO and Founder of Arajet, affirmed that this new recognition is a testament to the airline’s commitment to have a modern and efficient aircraft fleet with a great partner in The Boeing Company.

"Our fleet, besides being among the most modern in the world, is also the most efficient and environmentally friendly fleet, thanks to the technology used by the Boeing 737 Max 8, that consumes less fuel and produces less sonic pollution than other aircraft of its style,” said Mr. Pacheco.

Arajet closed 2023 with a fleet consisting of 8 Boeing 737 Max 8 airplanes. In 2024, Arajet will continue adding new aircraft to its fleet to further expand its network, which currently connects 23 destinations in 16 countries throughout the Americas.

Arajet orders 20 737 MAX Jets

Boeing has received a massive order from a brand new Caribbean airline Arajet that could see up to 20 737 MAX jets flying with the carrier from the Dominican Republic.

The order had been finalised in January and was showing as 'unidentified customer' in Boeing's order book and is for the MAX 8 variety with an option for an additional 15 jets. All in all with lease deals included could see the airline taking 40 Boeing aeroplanes in total. 

"The efficient Boeing 737 MAX, together with financial and operational support from our partners at Griffin and Bain Capital, gives us the solid foundation necessary to provide flights at affordable prices to travellers in the region," said Victor Pacheco Mendez, founder and executive officer of Arajet. "These partners believe in our vision and see the same bright future for this market and beyond. The entire team was elated to see our first aircraft arrive in Santo Domingo a few days ago, and we are eager to expand our fleet with more of these amazing jets in the months ahead."

"The 737 MAX is the perfect fit for Arajet and it's an honour to welcome this exciting new operator to the Boeing family," said Mike Wilson, vice president of sales, Latin America & Caribbean, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Flying an exclusive 737 MAX fleet will enable Arajet to save on fuel, maintenance and operations costs, and pass those savings on to its customers."

The carrier is scheduled to begin operations in May from Las Américas International Airport with an initial roster of destinations, including Jamaica, Costa Rica and Colombia. Flights to the U.S. will start later in the year with various destinations under consideration beyond Miami.  It hasn't ruled out transatlantic flights in future, however, the cost basis would need to come down dramatically for that sort of operation to be financially viable.
