Civil Aviation says 28 new flights will revert sag in tourist numbers
Santo Domingo.- Civil Aviation (JAC) on Wednesday announced the approval of 28 new regular flights at a time when Central Bank figures show a significant drop in travelers through Las Americas and Cibao airports.
The JAC also approved 598 charter flights during next summer at Punta Cana, Las Americas, La Romana and Samana airports, from June to August.
The carrier Delta Airlines will operate the 28 flights, which look to take up the slack left by American Airlines since April 1.
The new frequencies give Delta 7 weekly flights in New York-Santo Domingo, 7 in New York-Punta Cana and 14 in New York-Santiago route, totaling 28 additional weekly flights, doubling the carrier’s seats on those routes.
JAC president Luis Paulino Rodriguez called the requests by various airlines for increased frequencies in recent weeks “very positive” for the development of the country’s air transport sector, which bolster already established routes and develop new ones.
