American Airlines has opened a Charlotte-Samana flight in time for summer vacations. The flight is expected to revive US tourism in the northeastern tourist destination.

The flight would be from the International Charlotte-Douglas Airport in North Carolina to the El Catey International Airport in Samana. The seasonal flight will be from 5 June through 14 August 2021. Flights to Punta Cana (PUJ) are already available from that airport.

The announcement was made by Oliver Bojos, director general of American Airlines for the Dominican Republic.

The flights will be on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2pm. Arrivals would be at 5:30pm on a Embraer 175 with capacity for 88 persons.
