Eurowings launches first long-haul flights to Punta Cana in Dominican Republic

The low-cost German airline Eurowings has launched its first long-haul flights to the Dominican Republic. The airline operates four flights a week to Punta Cana on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays.

The new Eurowings flight EW1140 departs from Düsseldorf in Germany at 13:40 and arrives in Punta Cana at 19:25 local time. The return trip leaves the Dominica Republic at 20.55 local time, and arrives in Dusseldorf at 11.25 local time.

Oliver Wagner, the chief commercial officer of Eurowings, stated: 

“Now Düsseldorf, the largest airport in North Rhine-Westphalia, is also getting a low-cost long-haul airline with Eurowings. The advance bookings for our flights are already very high.”

Wagner added:

“The demand for our offering is clearly there.”

The Dusseldorf-based airline will also launch new long-haul flights to the Caribbean and Mexico over the next few months. Eurowings has revealed plans to operate flights to Varadero in Cuba on Saturdays, Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic on Thursdays, and Cancun in Mexico on Mondays. All of the routes will commence operations in December, 2017.

Wagner concluded:

“We will continue to expand the long-haul business in Düsseldorf and we will increase to four aircraft in Düsseldorf in summer 2018. Then we’ll also connect Düsseldorf to destinations in the USA.”

Punta Cana is the leading tourist destination in the Dominican Republic, and one of the most popular in the Caribbean. Located on the easternmost point of the island nation, the region boasts verdant, tropical landscapes and all-year-round sunshine. Holidaymakers can relax on white sand, palm-fringed beaches on the 32-kilometre-long coastline that faces the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

The award-winning Bavaro Beach is one of the most popular areas in Punta Cana. The beach is home to powder-soft white sand, shallow turquoise sea, and a sheltered lagoon that is perfect for families with young children. With 10 pristine beaches, there are plenty of opportunities to discover the underwater world through snorkelling or scuba diving activities and see vibrant marine species such as sea turtles and stingrays.

During their stay, tourists can enjoy a wide range of leisure, nature and adventure activities. These include trekking through lush jungles, zip lining above the tree tops, hiking through lush valleys. The area has several eco-park attractions including the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park which spans 1,500 acres of tropical land and has 12 freshwater lagoons and dense mangrove forests, and Manati Park with its lively shows and performances including sea lion tricks and dancing horses.
