American Airlines announces increased flights to the Dominican Republic in winter

Santo Domingo.- American Airlines has announced plans to increase its flights to the Dominican Republic for the upcoming winter holiday season in 2023. The airline will enhance its service to popular Dominican destinations such as Punta Cana (PUJ), Puerto Plata (POP), and Santiago (STI), with up to 25 daily flights during the peak period of the season.

Starting in early December, American Airlines will expand its service to Punta Cana (PUJ) from multiple hubs including Miami (MIA), Charlotte (CLT), Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), and New York (JFK). This will result in more than 85 weekly flights to the Caribbean region.

Furthermore, beginning December 5, American Airlines will increase its service from Charlotte (CLT) to Puerto Plata (POP) to daily flights, and from Charlotte (CLT) to Punta Cana (PUJ) to four daily flights. The airline also plans to augment its service from Miami (MIA) to Puerto Plata (POP) and Santiago (STI) from one daily flight to two daily flights.

With these additional frequencies, American Airlines will operate over 150 weekly flights to the Dominican Republic, representing a capacity increase of more than 30% for the 2023-2024 holiday season compared to the same period in the previous year.

José María Giraldo, Managing Director for Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean at American Airlines, expressed the airline’s commitment to serving the Dominican Republic and its excitement about offering customers an extensive winter program, facilitating travel to the country.

Tickets for these flights will be available for purchase starting June 18 on the American Airlines website (

Of course, flights are going to increase during the high season. A better and more positive information indicator would be to say the increase has the capacity to bring more passengers than 2022-2023 high season.
