New Dominican airline touts value, cuisine

New York.- The new Sky Cana airline of Dominican investment, was officially presented this week, and its president, Frank Díaz, announced that the company will offer low rates on flights, will not charge for the first suitcase or for the handhelds, and will serve Dominican food.

The event was held at the Riu Plaza hotel in Times Square in Manhattan.

Come to Baltimore or Washington with direct flight to Puerta Plata. Already have direct to Punta Cana but North Shore needs one from Baltimore/DC.

I swear the people (or person) who run Dominican Today are retarded. The photo of the airplane clearly says “Go Puerto Plata” and the airline will service Santiago and Santo Domingo. WTF?

They are promoting the tourism in DR. There is nothing wrong with that. If I am not mistaken the company has three planes, with Punta Cana Logo, Puerto Plata, and Samana which are cities with the most tourists.

You might be more because its a promotional phrase its not a literal plane that only goes to one city. The airline already flies to most airports in DR there just adding a new route from New York.

Da muuuuchas penas que un proyecto así se caiga porque cuando se investigue hay lavado de dinero de políticos, congresistas, etc.

Lamentablemente con pesimistas como usted nunca se puede llegar a nada. Porque necesariamente tienen que ser la mafia y el narco quien invierten en D R?

Be warned , never book or travel via ANY Dominican Republic Airlines. THEY ALL FAIL. If they need to cancel a flight, no compensationes given. If a Dominican Airlines losses you luggage-that’s it, don’t expect to be compensated. The lists goes on and on with there terrible service. The last Dominican Airlines which folded around 2 years ago, left everyone with paid ticketed airfares hanging. .. they were still making bookings flights up the the night before they officially announced bankruptcy.

I am talking from about 38 yrs past experience. By 1983 l said no more and never again traveled with an Dominican Republic airline carrier.
