Aerolíneas Argentinas reconnects Córdoba with Punta Cana

Punta Cana.- After a hiatus of four and a half years, Aerolíneas Argentinas is set to resume its services between Córdoba (COR), Argentina, and Punta Cana (PUJ), Dominican Republic, a highly sought-after vacation spot among Argentine travelers.

According to the Aerolíneas Argentinas reservation system, flights linking Córdoba and Punta Cana will commence on September 13, utilizing Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. This route will mark the eleventh longest for the model, spanning a distance of 5,538 kilometers.

From Córdoba, passengers will have access to connections to and from various cities such as Neuquén, Comodoro Rivadavia, Mar del Plata, San Juan, Mendoza, Resistencia, Tucumán, or Bariloche, presenting a new travel option for residents of Argentina’s interior regions, as reported by aviacionline.com.

The flight schedule for Córdoba-Punta Cana route is as follows:

Córdoba – Punta Cana flight AR 1326 COR 14:00 – 20:50 PUJ / Fridays and Saturdays.

Punta Cana – Córdoba flight AR 1327 PUJ 22:05 – 07:00 COR / Fridays and Saturdays.

This new route will complement the existing four weekly flights departing from Buenos Aires/Ezeiza with Airbus A330-200 aircraft, adding an extra capacity of 2,176 seats per week. In an indirect competition, it rivals Arajet, which operates a daily flight to Santo Domingo/Las Américas with Boeing 737 MAX 8.

Punta Cana stands out as one of the top destinations for Aerolíneas Argentinas, with ANAC Argentina data indicating that the state-owned company transported 78,030 passengers in 2023, achieving a 92% occupancy rate. According to the National Statistics Office (ONE) of the Dominican Republic, approximately 199,668 Argentines visited the Caribbean nation last year, primarily through connections in Lima, Panama City, São Paulo, Miami, or Bogotá.

Argentina ranks as the second South American country with the highest number of tourists visiting the Dominican Republic and holds the fourth position globally. The reintroduction of Aerolíneas Argentinas’ service to Punta Cana from Argentina’s second most populous city is expected to diversify passenger flow and further strengthen ties between the two countries.
