Tour operator Anex Tour, owner of Azur Air, which currently has three flights scheduled to the Dominican Republic from Russia and two from Ukraine, reported that it plans to double the number of operations in both markets for the 2021-2022 winter season.
“We are pleased to announce that we will receive three flights a week with a capacity of 530 seats on each flight from Russia to La Romana airport,” an Anex Tour statement said.
The flights from Russia add additional capacity, the statement adds “to our current summer schedule from the Ukraine market with a rotation of three times every 10 days during the summer. Our main objective is to increase our current capacity of five weekly flights in both markets by more than double during the 2021/2022 winter season.”
It is also stated that it is a great honor to welcome back Anex Tour travelers arriving from Russia with Azur Air’s flight to the Dominican Republic, after last Monday, August 9, making its first flight from Russia to La Romana Airport, where it has three weekly flights scheduled.
Also, the airline plans to additionally fly from Russia once a week to Punta Cana and Puerto Plata.
“It has been a long wait due to the global pandemic and we are happy to showcase the wonders of the beautiful Dominican Republic to new travelers from Russia,” the tour operator’s statement said.
Anex Tour thanked the collaboration in putting together the program, offered by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Tourism, the Civil Aviation Board (JAC), the La Romana Airport Management, Milcíades Castillo Pujols, the Embassy of the Dominican Republic in the Russian Federation, its Ambassador, Hans Dannenberg Castellanos, and the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Julio Gómez.
The company explained that its priority and objective is to contribute, directly or indirectly, to all Anex Tour structures and partners in all markets, to take advantage of the opportunities and join the tour operator to “support the Dominican Republic as a key destination for the CIS market throughout the year”.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our partners who have been with us in the past and have seen the potential for future tourism growth. We value their support and are very excited to be working together again. Our hope is to return to the bright old days, with strong cooperation and join forces to achieve even greater success in the years to come,” they point out in the communication.
