American Airlines extended to three its flight operations from the Cibao International Airport to Philadelphia, United States, transporting dozens of domestic and foreign passengers.
With the launching of the new operation, the airline adds three weekly frequencies on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, at 9:25 in the morning, arriving in the Dominican Republic at 1:00 in the afternoon; and leaves Santiago at 2:30 in the afternoon, arriving in Philadelphia at 6:05 in the evening, local time.
Flight number AA296 was inaugurated on April 2 and arrived at 1:13 p.m. from the Dominican Republic in a B738 aircraft with capacity for 172 passengers, 16 in business class and 156 in the main cabin.
“With this route, which will travel three times a week, we will meet the demand of the hundreds of Dominicans residing in the state of Pennsylvania and its surroundings”, said executives of the North American airline from the Cibao airport.
Meanwhile, Oliver Bojos, American Airlines Regional Manager for the Central Caribbean, said that the new direct flight from Philadelphia to the heart of Cibao, seeks to boost the business and tourism sector for the entire northern region of the country.
It is recalled that the flight will provide more options, as the airline currently has 4 direct flights to Miami International Airport with daily frequencies from the terminal in Santiago.
With the new route, the Cibao airport reaffirms its commitment to offer greater and better air connectivity opportunities to its users, always betting on good customer service and human quality that characterizes the terminal.
