Charlottetown Airport to have direct flights to Puerto Plata

Sunwing is switching destinations next winter from the Charlottetown airport.

From mid-February to mid-May, the airline will fly to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, instead of Varadero, Cuba, which has been the destination for the last four years.

In a statement to CBC, Sunwing said it made the decision after consulting with travel agency partners and the Charlottetown Airport Authority.

Airport CEO Doug Newson says his first choice was Punta Cana in the Dominican, but he’s still pleased.

‘Should be successful’

“We really wanted to work with them and what works for their product, and we’re happy to see a new destination,” he said. “Although it’s not Punta Cana, I think Puerto Plata will do just as well, and should be successful.”

Customers flagged Puerto Plata as a destination with a wider variety of both budget friendly and luxury resorts that cater to a wide variety of travelers, Sunwing said.
