New Direct Air flight taking U.S. travellers to Dominican Republic holidays in Punta Cana

Defying the troubled economic times, especially for the tourism and travel industry, American carrier Air Trans has just introduced a new set of flights to Punta Cana departing from Florida, due to start flying from 16th December, 2010

New Direct Air flight taking U.S. travellers to Dominican Republic holidays in Punta Cana

Boosting the market of Dominican Republic holidays for U.S. travellers, Direct Air announced Thursday that it will fly from Palm Beach International Airport to Puerto Rico and Punta Cana, a resort in Dominican Republic’s east coast.

The Myrtle Beach, S.C.-based carrier said nonstop flights on Boeing 737 jets to San Juan and Punta Cana will begin Dec. 16. Direct Air announced last month that beginning in November, it will fly from PBIA to Worcester, Mass.; Niagara Falls, N.Y.; Kalamazoo, Mich.; and Rockford, Ill.

The carrier announced it will offer twice weekly flights the popular Caribbean destinations from Palm Beach. “We have embraced Palm Beach County as our window on the Atlantic,” Direct Air president Ed Warneck said at a news conference at the airport.

These two new direct international flights will start servicing Punta Cana holidays in the Dominican Republic with nonstop flights from Palm Beach International Airport to San Juan, Puerto Rico and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic from 16th December 2010.

The South Carolina-based air service announced that flights to both cities will be offered on Boeing 737-400 series jet aircraft on Saturdays to Punta Cana and Thursday and Sundays to San Juan.

The company is accepting reservations for Dominican Republic holidays in Punta Cana and San Juan already, and will be offering vacation packages in the coming days.

To celebrate its new Caribbean holiday destinations, Direct Air is offering a special "$99.00 for 99 Hours" sale.

All available flights from Palm Beach International Airport to Punta Cana and San Juan will start at a special introductory airfare of just $99.00 each way, plus applicable taxes, with First-Class upgrades available for an additional $100 extra each way.

This sales event will begin Thursday, August 12, 2010 at 7 am EST and will end on Sunday August 15, at 11 pm EST.
