Interesting. I'm glad my marathon flying days are over.

Good news for the folks who live out there I guess ? But not daily flights so you have to schedule your trip accordingly

Samana doesn't justify too many flights..... small market, less hotel beds.

The Cdn flights were the the same - Wed & Sat (WestJet)
Air Canada too

JetBlue too---- Wed & Sat... when they flew
They switched to PUJ - for more $ per seat

Used to use the Cdn & Jet Blue flights all the time

AZS = Newest airport in the country.... and least used

Lots of Sto Dom passengers from Canada ) no SDQ flts)

Cdn's cannot fly direct these days... great option for them

My wife's last trip called for an overnite in EWR to catch the AM flight
