    Strong quake

    I haven't heard of any damage close to the epicentre. Does anyone know of any?

    I'm still trying to work out the schedule, not very clear at all, but when I manage to find the correct info I will post again on here. Different sites give contradictory details.....

    . Swiss-based airline Edelweiss is launching a new route between Zurich and Puerto Plata. g

    Strange, I came back to the DR on this route last year, so not sure how it's new, but it was an amazing flight, best I've had in years. Will definitely try to use this company again. I connect via Zurich to the UK, and they link with SwissAir and you can buy a through ticket, luggage transfer...

    Yes, felt strongly in Cabarete, didn't last long, but definitely felt.

    Tremble 5:00 a.m.

    Yes, I felt it between Cabarete and Sosua. Just a slight movement but the wind chimes got activated.

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    Domestic Dominican Airlines

    Thanks a lot, if you hear of anything, please post here, and I will do the same. That's probably part of a charter flight with two locations in the DR. If so, when I've done it on other airlines, you usually have to do the stop either going out in coming in, not usually both ways, e.g. TUI.

    I'm clutching at straws, but did you by any chance find anything from POP to PUJ?

    First European Flight at Santiago

    Yes, thanks, that would be my second choice after Punta Cana, but good to have options, for sure.

    First European Flight at Santiago

    Yes, I was asking about British Airways and POP on another thread. I've been unable to find out anything concrete although reports mentioned October. Does anyone know anything, I'm desperate not to have to go via Punta Cana?

    British Airways flying to Puerto Plata

    A few months back there was news on Dominican Today and a few other sites saying that a deal had been signed for British Airways to start flying into Puerto Plata from the UK, starting in October, 2022. I've been looking on the BA website, but nothing is showing up on the flight schedules...

    Omicron Protection

    I hope your daughter-in-law stays well. Is she a doctor in the DR or elsewhere?

    Encuentro Beach

    I think so, apparently there was some police activity in the area today.

    Earthquakes in the DR

    I remember this one well, certainly the strongest I've felt since living here, even stronger than the really bad one I felt from Haiti 11 years ago. The one last night woke me, but I went straight back to sleep. I haven't heard reports of any serious damage or loss of life, so I hope that is...
