Pawa Dominicana starts flights between Santo Domingo and Miami

Start-up carrier Pawa Dominicana is set to become the lone Dominican airline to offer commercial service to the U.S.

Pawa will begin flying twice daily between Santo Domingo and Miami on Nov. 16, the carrier announced last week. They'll compete on the route with American.

In its route announcement, Pawa promised to emphasize the "human aspect" of customer relations.

"We offer the broadest variety of ticket sales channels, in addition to the typical Dominican warmth, both onboard and on ground," the carrier's U.S. manager, Daniel Castillo, said in prepared remarks. "Additionally, our punctuality rate has exceeded 93% during our first year of operations."

On the Miami-Santo Domingo flights Pawa passengers will be allowed to check a suitcase of up to 50 pounds free of charge and carry-on bags of up to 22 pounds. Hot food and open bar service will also be offered, the carrier said.

Pawa Dominicana began operating in 2007 but ceased flights in 2012, according to the website Airline Route. It resumed operations in August 2015 and now flies to eight Caribbean destinations.

Miami flights are to be carried on MD-83 aircraft.
