Ava Airways is a Dominican Republic airline venture with its headquarters and airline operator’s certificate (AOC) base in Santo Domingo. Ava Airways was established by its founders as an Airline of the Americas, who opted to develop their airline venture in the Dominican Republic due to the country’s favorable location and bilateral status. Ava signed a USD65 million agreement with Capital Partners in Dec-2016 to initiate operations from the Dominican Republic. The new airline plans to serve destinations in the Caribbean, North America, and South America. Ava Airways plans to launch its brand in summer/autumn 2021.
