The airline Air Caraïbes will increase by more than 50% the frequency of its flights between Paris and the Dominican Republic for the 2023-2024 winter season, the French airline and its marketing company in the country, General Air Services, announced on Friday.

To meet the demand of customers who appreciate this tourist destination, the company will offer up to 6,000 weekly seats departing from Paris Orly to Punta Cana and Santo Domingo, says a press release.

“Air Caraïbes has the capacity and the will to maintain links between France and the Dominican Republic. We have worked with the Dominican authorities and met the necessary conditions on both sides to increase our frequencies and allow many French tourists who appreciate this destination to continue traveling” to the Caribbean country, said Air Caraïbes president Marc Rochet.

Air Caraïbes and tour operators are engaged “in a strong partnership aimed at maintaining the level of tourist assistance of French customers to the Dominican Republic”, where the airline “becomes a major player in the face of the country’s goal of exceeding 10 million tourists this year.”

From October 20, 2023, Air Caraïbes will offer a daily flight to the Dominican Republic operated mainly by an Airbus A350-900, and from December 14, 2023, the airline will offer nine weekly flights to this destination.

The route from Paris-Orly to Punta Cana will have a daily non-stop flight, while the route connecting the French capital with Santo Domingo will have two direct flights per week, one via Port-au-Prince (Haiti) and the other via San Salvador (Bahamas), the note notes.
