    Default New domestic airline - POP - Santiago - PUJ

    Tropical Aero Services are to launch a new domestic service as from early June.

    Infotur Dominicano » Aerolínea dominicana TAS inicia operaciones Punta Cana

    For those who don't read Spanish, it is planned to fly Punta Cana to Puerto Plata and back on Fridays, leaving Punta Cana at 2.30 and Puerto Plata at 4.30.

    On Sundays the route will be Punta Cana - Santiago - Puerto Plata and back the same way.

    They are then hoping to add Santo Domingo, Antigua and Barbados and also Puerto Plata to Turks and Caicos.

    price is either 188 or 200 dollars. each way.
    “Nos hemos encontrado con turistas que al llegar a Punta Cana, creen que Puerto Plata queda a media hora de distancia y los costos para trasladarse por tierra son muy elevados, además del tiempo invertido para el mismo, en ese sentido con nuestros servicios los costos son más bajos y el tiempo de conexión entre los dos destinos es de una hora promedio”.

    I don't even feel safe taking the bus companies here, so I sure as hell am not getting on a plane.

    I can't find out which aircraft they intend to use for this route.Hopefully a twin turbine but not sure if they have one.

    It's certainly about time someone did something on a regular basis on this route but they will need a reliable service.

    And that's the tricky part.........

    Air travel includes one extra dimension to screw up in. But this might be a fun flight, if they avoid those towering mango trees.
    I once took a six passenger Beechcraft from Punta Gorda to Belize City. It flew low, the view was terrific.
    We flew over the beach at Dangriga,and the people from that elevation looked like ...mantises!
