British Airways relaxes in the Dominican Republic with some Caribbean winter sun


British Airways prepares for the launch of its new twice-weekly service from Gatwick to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic from October 26, 2009 reinforcing its position as the airline with more flights to the Caribbean than any other UK carrier.

In addition to the flights to Punta Cana, the airline is also increasing flights to other winter sun hot-spots in the region such as St Lucia (from three to five flights a week), Barbados (from nine to ten) and Port of Spain, Trinidad (from three to five). Overall, BA will now fly 45 times a week to the Caribbean.

Richard Tams, head of sales at British Airways, said; ďThese new routes and increased frequencies underline our commitment to the Caribbean. Itís a popular destination with our customers and itís due to demand that weíre increasing the number of flights to the region. We now operate to 13 destinations in the Caribbean - more than any other UK airline.Ē

Holidays in the Dominican Republic mean relaxing on sun-kissed beaches and snorkelling above colourful reefs, strolling along the 16th-century cobblestone streets of the capital in Santo Domingoís Colonial Zone or taking a hiking holiday in the Dominican Republicís forested inland.

British Airways has a wide range of hotels in the Dominican Republic, like the 5* Dreams Palm Beach which is situated in an idyllic location, on a gorgeous beach with luxury accommodation and a fantastic kids Explorerís Club. Alternatively, those looking for pure relaxation can try the 5* Zoetry Agua Punta Cana, offering complimentary private chauffeured return airport transfers rounding up a holiday in style.

All the British Airways hotels in the Dominican Republic have easy access to some of the most beautiful beaches and range from large, attractive, low-rise resorts to smaller, more intimate hotels, ensuring British Airways has a great selection of 3* to 5* hotels, covering a wide variety of tastes and a mixture of budgets too.
