Air Turks and Caicos announces new route to Santo Domingo
Published on November 19, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

Air Turks and Caicos has announced flights into Santo Domingo, starting December 14, 2012.

The capital and largest city in the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo is a vibrant urban center that embodies elements central to the Dominican experience: a living museum, a modern metropolis crossed with elegant seaside resorts, high end shopping malls and a business, political and media center with a laid-back casual spirit that is rich with the sounds of merengue and bachata from corner colmados.

Air Turks and Caicos chairman, Lyndon Gardiner, said the new route is being introduced to satisfy a growing customer demand for direct services between the Turks and Caicos and the Dominican capital. “It also opens up the TCI tourism market to easier connections from Europe, South, and Central America -- as the Dominican Republic is already a popular vacation spot well known to these travelers with many daily flights from these destinations.”

“This announcement reaffirms our 20 year commitment to serving our passengers needs, a commitment we’ve significantly grown over the years. Today, Air Turks and Caicos proudly provide customers from our network with access to more destinations than any other airline based in the region,” Gardiner added.

Commencing December 14, the 75-minute flight will operate four times weekly –Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday -- using the airline’s fleet of 30-passenger Embraer Brasilia E120s. These aircraft offers comfortable seating, lavatory, galley and friendly flight attendant service. With connecting services to The Bahamas, Jamaica and Haiti, the Santo Domingo route allows passengers to travel on Air Turks and Caicos for their entire journey.

To introduce the new route, Air Turks and Caicos has a special fare on offer -- $150 each way (plus taxes).

Launched just in time for the holiday season, shoppers can take advantages of the generous exchange rate and multiple shopping choices Santo Domingo offers, with new malls ranging from moderate to super high-end featuring name brand retailers such as Louis Vuitton, Apple, Hilfiger, Zara, Diesel and more.
