The Dominican Republic intends to become a regional connection point for Russian tourists, while air communication between the two countries is being strengthened.
Sources from the Dominican embassy in Moscow pointed out that ‘it is our wish that the Dominican Republic becomes a regional connection point, taking advantage of its strategic location, from which the Russians who visit us can also connect with other destinations of their interest throughout Central America and the Caribbean’.
In addition, the lifting of restrictions on air traffic between the two countries has encouraged key Russian tour operators to increase their operations and flights to the Dominican Republic, with flights being scheduled from Russian cities that had never had this air connection.
Thus, the embassy informed of the plans of the Russian charter airline Azur Air, which in early October will resume its operations to the Dominican Republic from St. Petersburg and later from the Russian cities of Kazan, Yekaterinburg, Rostov and Novosibirsk.
For its part, the tour operator Pegas Touristik plans to fly to Punta Cana, Samaná and Puerto Plata in September and, starting in October, flights will be available, in addition to Moscow, from the airports of the cities of Ufa, Kazan and Novosibirsk.
