Wingo focuses on Punta Cana: increases its capacity by 75%

Wingo will increase its capacity to the Dominican Republic by 75% to meet the demand of Colombian travelers to the destination. This increase in flights covers the two operational routes to Punta Cana, with six extra frequencies that will represent up to 9,000 added seats.

The airline indicated that the increase will be emphasized in the last quarter of 2024, focusing on the high season weeks of December 2024 and January 2025.

Wingo will start additional flights between Bogota and Punta Cana on September 1, 2024, adding one frequency per week. This will culminate in the increases from November 2024, when it will implement a daily flight between the two destinations. The two additional flights represent 3,000 monthly seats already on sale at

The Medellin – Punta Cana – Medellin route will be added two frequencies per week starting November 1, 2024, to perfect these increases on December 16, 2024, when a daily flight will be offered focused on high season weeks. The four additional flights represent 6,000 added seats, also already available.

“The Dominican Republic is one of the key countries in our process of consolidating our position as the preferred airline in the Caribbean for Colombians. With these additional flights to Punta Cana, we reach up to 22 frequencies per week, which represents nearly 33,000 seats per month on both routes; a number that reflects our commitment to be the best direct flight option in the Colombia-Dominican Republic market,” said Jorge Jiménez, Wingo’s vice president of commercial and planning.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic (Mitur) indicated that “the Dominican Republic continues to open its arms to Colombia as a sister country. We are very happy to receive more and more Colombian tourists and to be part of their vacation experiences. The growing connection between our countries, not only in tourism, but also in the cultural and economic sectors, strengthens our ties and allows us to offer enriching and memorable experiences”.
