IAG’s long-haul low cost carrier announced its schedule for the northern hemisphere winter season, adding Punta Cana (PUJ) to its network of destinations as of December 4 with the aim of reactivating its operations from Barcelona (BCN), adapting to the current dynamics and health restrictions.
LEVEL already knew how to operate this destination in Dominican Republic between June 2017 and March 2018.
Punta Cana is one of the favorite destinations in the Caribbean for Spanish tourists looking to escape the winter.
“Our direct flights from Barcelona to Punta Cana are good news for the tourism sector and another sign of how we at LEVEL are adapting to the current situation.” Said Lucía Adrover, Commercial Director of LEVEL.
“At LEVEL we are focused on offering attractive alternatives for those people who want to travel, to places as attractive as Punta Cana or Cancun, while maintaining connectivity from Barcelona to Buenos Aires, a very relevant destination for the city,” she added.
The flights are already available through www.flylevel.com and the rest of Iberia’s usual sales channels, with prices starting at EUR 510 roundtrip. They will operate weekly on Airbus A330-200s with capacity for 304 passengers, totaling 608 seats per week.
Tickets are available for sale until March 27, according to their reservation system.
