President Medina opens new Punta Cana Airport terminal
President Danilo Medina was in Punta Cana on Saturday, 29 November 2014 for the formal inauguration of Terminal B at the Punta Cana International Airport. Speaking during the event, Tourism Minister Francisco Javier Garcia praised the Punta Cana brand. He highlighted that the Dominican Republic is the leader in tourism in the Caribbean region. He said the opening of the new terminal was further proof of continued improvements and developments in the sector. He commented that travel was up 14.5% in October and annual growth is at 10% including October, way above the regional average. He highlighted that all the DR's source markets were showing growth this year: Europe is up 6%, South America 18% and the US 12%.
Speaking at the inauguration, Puntacana Group CEO Frank Rainieri stated that the new terminal makes the Punta Cana International Airport the most modern in the Caribbean. The airport receives the largest volume of traffic in the Dominican Republic, most of it consisting of tourists headed for the beach resorts in the area.
The new terminal covers an area of 33,000 square meters. With the new terminal, the Punta Cana International Airport has 23 ramps and 50 passenger check-in points. The airport now has two terminals serving traffic mainly from the Americas, another for traffic from Europe, and a fourth for private flights, VIP travel and light aircraft traffic.
While the airport mainly serves tourists headed to the east coast resorts, the excellent road connections also make the airport a practical option for travelers from the capital city Santo Domingo and other Dominican cities to travel to Punta Cana to catch a direct flight to dozens of destinations or comfortably return to the capital city on the same day.
The airport has the largest number of connections in the country, with flights to around 80 countries. In 2013, the airport served 2,597,086 arriving passengers.
Parque de las Luces is city's Christmas attraction
Santo Domingo's Christmastime city light show opened to the public on Monday 1 December 2014. Organized by the National District City Government, the Bright Christmas lights spectacular at the Parque Iberoamerica on Av. Bolivar is now in its second season. The city government lights up the park with 27 million multicolored lights over an area of 13,000 square meters. The display continues through 7 January 2015. This year a new amphitheater promises to be a central attraction with many shows starting during the holidays.
WestJet brings Santa to Puerto Plata
Canadian airline WestJet has released a Christmas surprise video set in a small seaside village in the Dominican Republic, telling the story of the visit of the WestJet Blue Santa and his helpers to Puerto Plata's Nuevo Renacer barrio.
The "Spirit of Giving" video, released on Sunday, 30 November 2014 shows villagers receiving toys, a washing machine and even a horse from Santa. A children's playground was also installed in the neighborhood as part of the company's wider support for this poor community.
The airline also recreated a snowfield, enabling the local children to enjoy their first snowball fight.
"This year we're bringing a snowy Canadian Christmas to a community in the Dominican Republic," announced WestJet.
WestJet flies from Canada to Puerto Plata, La Romana, Samana and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
