Expansion plan to include flights to Puerto Rico, Miami, New York, Havana
Pan Am World Airways Dominicana (PAWA), a Dominican-based airline, started operations with two flights from Santo Domingo to Curaçao and Aruba.
The airline, which showcases the Dominican flag as its emblem, started operating a full itinerary recently, with the addition of St. Maarten as its third destination in the Caribbean, within its first phase of operations.
Airline officials say in the second phase of its expansion plan, there will be flights to Puerto Rico, Miami, New York and Havana.
Founded in 2007, PAWA hit a snag in its operations and was grounded. The airline was acquired and relaunched in its current form by Venezuelan businessman Simeon Garcia in 2013.
