The Russians are on their way

Mila Granik of Capitol Tours from Russia confirmed that the Punta Cana-Moscow
flight is a sealed deal. The charter flight will land at the Punta Cana
International Airport starting 27 December, carrying with it new batches of
Russian tourists every two weeks. This is not a first for chartered flights from
Russia, however, as they tested the market by flying into Puerto Plata and Santo
Domingo sporadically in 1996 and 1997.
