The Dominican Republic Civil Aviation Board approves nearly 1,000 charter flights
In the last normal session of the month of May, the Dominican Republic Civil Aviation Board (JAC) unanimously approved 993 new charter flights, divided between passengers and freight, as reported in Diario Libre. According to JAC chairman Roger Jover, the large number of new flights every month reflects the high level of international confidence in the country.
The operations are for the months of June and September 2016, the country’s peak travel time.
The new flights include:
230 flights from Caracas to Santo Domingo and back.
110 flights between San Juan, Puerto Rico and Punta Cana.
75 flights between Moscow and Punta Cana.
76 new charter flights for the Aruba, Santo Domingo and St. Martin route.
A special permit was granted to Air France to cover two new routes to the Caribbean: from Pointe-a-Pitre (Guadeloupe) to Punta Cana and from Fort-de-France (Martinique) to Punta Cana.
Flights from Chile and Lima to La Romana.
The German airline Condor Flugdients was granted a special permit to fly the Frankfurt-Punta Cana-Puerto Plata-Frankfurt route during the summer season with twice-weekly flights.
