The airline LAN Chile recently announced that it will add additional flights from these two South American countries to Punta Cana, one of the Caribbean’s most important tourism destinations. Punta Cana is situated in the Dominican Republic’s easternmost region. The Chilean airliner announced that it will add two flights per week, on Mondays and Tuesdays, from January 7 to February 7, 2012. For most of the year LAN Chile operates two flies into Punta Cana’s international airport. The flights originate in Santiago de Chile, stop-over in Miami, and continue on to Punta Cana.
On the other hand, LAN Peru will add two flights on its Lima-Punta Cana routes beginning October 11. The flights are scheduled for Fridays and Sundays to Punta Cana from Lima. With the addition of these two flights, LAN Peru will be operating daily flights between both destinations. It currently flies from Monday-Thursday, and Saturdays.
Avianca, Colombia’s national airline, initiated this past July 20 two flights between Bogota, the capital city, and Punta Cana. The flights operate Wednesdays and Saturdays on an Airbus 319 and 320.
These two additions brings the total number of flights between these two destinations to four, making Avianca / Taca the other airline providing service between Bogotá and the Dominican Republic.
