Air Trans adds another new flight to its Dominican Republic holidays portfolio
Just yesterday we informed you hou Air Trans added a new set of flights to the Dominican Republic departing from Palm Beach and now they seem thirsty for more as they introduce a new set of flights to Punta Cana, this time departing from Atlanta.
Will the global recession ever stop the American carrier from further investing in the Dominican Republic holidays industry? It seems not. With the global recession still in full swing Air Tran Airways continues to buck the sluggish trend by adding new flights to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, this time from another American airport.
Adding another destination to the Caribbean region that the low cost carrier offers, it looks that there's nothing stopping their ambitous Caribbean holidays plan. Currently they service flights to Aruba holidays, Cancun holidays, Mexico holidays, Montego Bay holidays in Jamaica and Nassau/Paradise Island holidays in the Bahamas.
Round trip Flights are linked from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to Punta Cana International Airport commencing February 16, 2011 with two flights weekly.
According to Kevin Healy, AirTran Airways' senior vice president, Punta Cana is popular tourist vacation spot and the airline is pleased in offering such a service to link the cold north to the warm tropics. He also noted that this was part of their growth strategy for the Caribbean region.
Punta Cana will see connecting flights to more than 40 cities throughout the Air Tran Airways network. Some of the cities are New York, Washington, Boston, Baltimore, Milwaukee and Orlando plus many others.
Frank Rainieri President and CEO of Grupo Puntacana, welcomed the move by Air Tran. With the demand for affordable air travel on the increase this will open up additional visitor arrivals to the region, he noted.
AirTran Airways has offered a charter service to Punta Cana since 2008 but, with increased interest in this tropical destination, the airline considers the time is ripe to offer scheduled services.
