The Dominican Republic (DR) Ministry of Tourism proudly welcomes new direct flights to Casa de Campo La Romana International Airport on the country's Southeast Coast; twice weekly JetBlue flights from New York's JFK will begin in November 2011 and daily American Eagle flights from Miami to La Romana began April 5.
"The new flights put the beautiful and romantic La Romana area within a few hours of two major U.S. cities," said Magaly Toribio, DR Ministry of Tourism, Vice Minister of International Promotion. "Dominican Republic's long-term commitment to innovative marketing has firmly established our culturally rich paradise in the hearts and minds of global travelers who seek sensational sun, azure blue seas and sumptuous and affordable world-class hotels. Our country's increasing popularity with U.S. visitors allows our airline partners to increase their flights to meet the growing demand for our warm and welcoming island nation."
As a growing global destination, the Dominican Annual Tourism Exchange (DATE), held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Convention Center in Punta Cana from April 27-29, drew hundreds of international tourism buyers, tour operators and media to the country's glamorous East Coast to conduct business and book future travel from around the world.
During the week's events, the DR Ministry of Tourism noted that non-resident visits to the DR increased in the first quarter of 2011 by 3.3 percent following a record 4.1 million visitors to the DR in 2010, setting the pace for an even more successful 2011.
The DR government and tourism industry's long-term commitment to develop necessary infrastructure, airlift and support of sustainable hotel developments over the last decade has resulted in diverse tourism offerings with a variety of upscale developments and world class hotel brands investment in the DR.
