Delta DC-9s could live on in the Dominican Republic
According to CH-Aviation, Delta’s recently retired Douglas DC-9 fleet could return to service with another airline in the near future.
PAWA Dominicana is an airline based in Santo Domingo, Punta Cana. Although it suspended operations in February 2012, it has maintained that it will return to service under its new management later this year.
The airline is reportedly planning to take on 20 of Delta’s DC-9-50 aircraft, which flew their final flight on 6th January, in addition to two ex-Northwest Airlines DC-9-30s and an ex-American Airlines MD-82.
