Air France had increased the number of luxury seats on flights to the Dominican Republic.

Flights from Paris to Santo Domingo and Punta Cana will now offer 26 additional seats, for a total of 40 luxury seats. Travelers traveling with first class seats will be able to travel with 32 kilos of luggage as well as 18 kilos of carry-on luggage.  They will also skip all lines when checking in.

“This is a great opportunity to support the development of luxury tourism in the Dominican Republic,” said Maria Esther Calleja, customer service manager for Air France during a press conference in Santo Domingo.

“Luxury tourism has increased throughout the country due to the emergence of luxury destinations in the Dominican Republic, even though in Europe the majority believes that the Dominican Republic only offers all-inclusive resorts,” said the airline executive. Air France offers up to nine weekly flights between the Dominican Republic and Paris.

Air France and the Dominican Ministry of Tourism have reached an agreement to promote the Dominican Republic in European through the airline.
