SANTIAGO, RD.

InterCaribbean Turks and Caicos have initiated the process that demands the Dominican State with the aim of becoming a Dominican airline offering services at lower cost and with greater quality over routes with the Caribbean without needing making the stops at North American territory, according to Eugenio de Marchena, Director of Operations.

Marchena confirmed that management are in the second phase of five to satisfy Regulation 491-06 of Civil Aviation of the Dominican Republic, which allows a foreign airline to become established in the Dominican Republic and to initiate services. It is hoped that the Dominican Institute of Aviación Civil (IDAC), under the direction of the Dr. Alejandro Herrera, authorizes a start before the end of the current year or early in 2019, which would establish Dominican InterCaribbean.

This Regulation establishes in Article 237 which considers national companies whose capital with substantial property belongs to a Dominican national at least 35% and directors are Dominican in equal proportion;

Eugenio de Marchena said that all the personnel will be Dominican what would contribute to the most personal labor market of crew with safe use and competitive wages, aside from the taxes that it will generate to the country. This aviation expert expressed that the company that will become Creole knows the national market enough because, from the Turks and Caicos Islands, it has more than 30 years offering services between the islands of the Caribbean with continuous operations from 1992 towards destinies like Turtledove, Haiti, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Curacao, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin, Aruba, among others.

"Now our plan is to change the connectivity between these islands which will allow to lower the costs significantly, including time and facilities", added Marchena. He said in addition the airline uses a fleet of modern airplanes of 50 passengers who connect to airlines like Delta, American Airlines and United. These are modern and efficient jets which allow fast connectivity and short flights of not more than an hour and a half.

"We come to compete with the Dominican realities of the State, but the stability guarantees are given in the studies of trades, we only needed the corresponding permissions so that Dominicans begin to enjoy an airline of quality and low prices", indicated Eugenio de Marchena.

EL AVIADOR, SANTIAGO, RD

InterCaribbean Turcos y Caicos ha iniciado el proceso que exige el Estado Dominicano con el objetivo de convertirse en una aerolínea dominicana y ofrecer un servicio a menor costo y de mayor calidad que cubra las rutas del Caribe sin necesidad de hacer escalas en territorio norteamericano, según lo informó Eugenio de Marchena, director de operaciones.

De Marchena expresó que las gestiones están en la segunda fase, de cinco según lo establece la ley 491-06 de Aviación Civil de la República Dominicana, que permite a una línea aérea extrajera establecerse en suelo dominicano e iniciar sus servicios, por lo que espera que el Instituto Dominicano de Aviación Civil (IDAC), bajo la dirección del Dr. Alejandro Herrera le otorgue el debido permiso para finales del corriente año o principio del 2019, lo que la convertiría en InterCaribbean Dominicana.

La citada ley establece en su artículo 237 que se consideran empresas nacionales aquellas cuyo capital con propiedad sustancial pertenezca a dominicanos en al menos un 35 % y su consejo de directores esté compuesto por dominicanos en igual proporción; Eugenio de Marchena dijo que todo el personal será dominicano lo que aportaría al mercado laboral más personal de tripulación con empleo seguro y salarios competitivos, aparte de los impuestos que generará al país.

El experto en temas de aviación expresó que la compañía que se encamina a convertirse en criolla conoce bastante el mercado nacional debido a que, desde IslasTurcas y Caicos, tiene más de 30 años ofreciendo sus servicios entre las islas del Caribe con operaciones continuas desde 1992 hacia destinos como Tórtola, Haití, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Curazao, Santa Lucía, San Martin, Aruba, entre otros. "Ahora nuestro plan es cambiar la conectividad entre estas islas lo que permitirá bajar los costos de manera significativa, incluyendo tiempo y facilidades", agregó de Marchena.

Dijo además que actualmente la citada aerolínea cuenta con una flota de modernos aviones de 50 pasajeros de los que usan actualmente líneas aéreas como Delta, American Airline, United. Estos Jets modernos permiten una rápida conectividad y de manera eficiente en vuelos cortos, de no más de hora y media.

"Venimos a competir con las realidades del Estado Dominicanos, pero las garantías de estabilidad están dadas en los estudios de mercadeos, por lo que solo necesitamos los permisos correspondientes para que los dominicanos comiencen a disfrutar de una aerolínea de calidad y bajos precios", señaló Eugenio de Marchena.

A rare Caribbean airline success story, Turks and Caicos based inter-Caribbean Airways (8 x EMB-120, 4 x DHC-6, 1 x BN2 and soon 2 x ERJ-145’s) under the leadership of Chairman Mr. Lyndon R. Gardiner and CEO Trevor Sadler is planning to set up an AOC in the Dominican Republic with several used ERJ-145’s, as the 26 year old airline continues its impressive Caribbean expansion from Nassau, Havana, Kingston, Tortola all the way to Dominica.

This Dominican Republic move would make it the second foreign airline that plans to do so, as two months back Laser Airlines of Venezuela announced it will fill the void left by the demise of PAWA Dominicana.

Dominican ownership would be just 35%, it may be enough locally, but under most bilateral air service agreements (BASA) it requires majority ownership and control, so traffic rights could be an issue.

No one has yet used the 50 seat regional jets in the Caribbean, though PAWA Dominicana did plan on operating 6 x CRJ-200’s, while fast they have a high unit cost (CSAK) and need a much higher yield to breakeven than what PAWA Dominicana was getting with its MD-80’s, and this will be interesting in a low yield market like the Caribbean.
