Delta Air Lines began its non-stop daily flight to Punta Cana from its Atlanta hub on Saturday, 19 November. The afternoon Punta Cana flight is the third Delta route serving the Dominican Republic, the first two being Santo Domingo and Santiago. Delta began flying to Santo Domingo as part of the company?s expansion in the Caribbean.
In what the company describes as one of the largest one-month expansions in its history, Delta Air Lines Punta Cana route inaugural was the first of seven new routes scheduled to begin within the next 30 days in the Caribbean. These seven new routes also include the opening of the non-stop Atlanta-Santo Domingo route effective 1 December. For Delta services to the DR, see http://dr1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45212
