The Iberojet airline made its first direct flight Barcelona-Punta Cana, with two weekly frequencies, on Mondays and Fridays, during the summer, increasing the flow of passengers to this destination and continuing to strengthen the arrival of more European tourists to Quisqueya.

The Director of Production of the Iberojet airline, stated that a few months ago the company decided to operate with a direct route Barcelona-Punta Cana due to the high demand that exists, which in principle was one frequency, but, due to the wide request, they increased to two .

“We have been operating in Punta Cana for a long time, with six weekly frequencies from Madrid, Spain; one from Porto and another from Lisbon, Portugal and we had been observing the demand to operate direct flights from Barcelona, ​​and thus, the passengers of the region would not have to travel to Madrid and other places to come here, at first, we thought of making a frequency, but, we saw that demand was very good and we opted for two rotations a week”, said Hernández.

He informed that in this first frequency Iberojet landed with 250 passengers, already having a large number of tickets sold for the next flights, while indicating that, if the demand continues, they would like to incorporate other flights in a stable manner throughout the year. .

“We are seeing a very high demand for Punta Cana and there is great expectation, passengers who come for tour operations or who buy on our page,” he said.

Joaquín Mateo, director of Iberojet in America, Giovanni Rainieri, director of Airside Operations at the Punta Cana Airport, were present at the opening ceremony of the first direct flight Barcelona-Punta Cana.

This operation is part of the vacation offer of the Ávoris Corporación Empresaria tour operators.
