Aeromar Celebrates Its First Year

Aeromar celebrates its first year of operation

Aeromar Airlines is celebrating its first year flying to New York. The Listin Diario reports that the airline transported 100,000 passengers to New York from Santo Domingo, Santiago and Puerto Plata last year. In a press conference in New York City to mark the first year celebration, NYC General Manager Fernando Jiménez said that they chose the worst moment to start -- right after the tragic events of 9/11 and the AA587 crash. He said at the start they only had a Boeing 727 with capacity for 170 passengers, which resulted in lots of luggage getting left behind. Little by little, however, the situation improved and today, Aeromar passengers fly on a 757 and a 767 with increased capacity for 200 and 232 passengers respectively and more luggage. The company pays commission to the travel agencies and has a special plan to encourage senior travelers. He announced that for 2003 there are plans to start a frequent flyer club and incorporate first-class seats.
“The monster (competitors American Airlines) we challenged with service, with moro, mangú and Dominican flight attendants who cared for the passengers in a special way,” said Ryan Polanco, vice president of the airline. He said that Aeromar showed that a Dominican airline could give good service and maintain it. He said the company’s goal for this year is to transport 200,000 passengers.
