Frontier Airlines is the latest U.S low-cost airline to announce new routes to the Dominican Republic for this summer. The airline is currently expanding to various Latin American destinations from its Tampa hub, including two in the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo and Punta Cana. It is one of several U.S-based airlines to open up new flights to the Caribbean island for the upcoming summer season. With Punta Cana being one of the top destinations for U.S tourists, now is a good time to purchase flights to the sunny destination.
The airline will be flying non-stop to two popular Dominican destinations this summer. With service starting on June 30th, the Tampa – Santo Domingo route will have a service frequency of two flights per week. Meanwhile, Frontier will fly to Punta Cana once per week starting on July 2, coinciding with the busy summer holiday period.
The new routes were announced on May 3, and Frontier is offering special discounts as part of the launch. The new routes are expected to greatly increase the air traffic between the United States and the Dominican Republic. The announcement comes on the heels of a new ranking by the international travel insurance group Allianz which revealed that Punta Cana is the 5th most popular international destination for U.S travelers this summer.
Frontier is still in negotiations with the Dominican government for the approval of the special airfare discount. Once the proposal is given the green light, travelers will be eligible for a limited-time intro fare, so budget-conscious travelers should routinely check Frontier’s website for the best deals. However, flights to its newly announced Caribbean destinations of San Juan and Montego Bay are on sale for just $99, so visitors should expect similar prices for the flights to the Dominican Republic. The flight frequency is also subject to change, according to the airline.
The airline has grown rapidly in Tampa and is focusing on new Latin American destinations, including the Dominican Republic. The airline’s senior vice president Daniel Shurz recently said that “we are happy to expand our international service from Tampa. We now offer more direct flights to Latin America than any other airline from our Tampa hub”.
Several airlines have announced new flights to the island in recent times. Besides Frontier Airlines, most major U.S carriers currently fly to the island, including American Airlines and United Airlines. Meanwhile, JetBlue, another low-cost airline, is celebrating 15 years of operations in the Dominican Republic.
Frontier Airlines is an ultra-low-cost air carrier aiming to bring passengers maximum comfort at affordable prices. Passengers can customize their flights to fit their needs, including seating and baggage options. The airline also claims to be one of the most fuel-efficient in the skies thanks to its fuel-saving measures.
These Are The Best Deals For Flights To The Dominican Republic
With the busy summer season just around the corner, travelers are eager to purchase flights to sunny Caribbean destinations. Many large U.S airlines fly non-stop flights to the Dominican Republic’s most important tourist hotspots including Santo Domingo, Puerto Plata, and Punta Cana. The best non-stop flight deals can be found for the months of June and August, with July having the highest demand.
A round trip flight with JetBlue from New York’s JFK Airport to Santo Domingo this June costs just $385 with basic amenities included. Meanwhile, those living in the southern parts of the country might prefer flying from Fort Lauderdale, from where they can catch a return flight for an affordably priced $266 on Spirit Airlines. Flights to Puerto Plata start from $470 for return flights in July, with slightly cheaper prices available in June.
