InterCaribbean Airways connects DR with Haiti
Regional airline InterCaribbean Airways is starting services from Kingston, Jamaica to Santo Domingo with a stopover in Port-au-Prince. There are Thursday and Saturday flights. The flying time from Jamaica to Haiti is 1 hour and 20 minutes, while the flight to Santo Domingo is another 55 minutes. In the past a longer flight to Puerto Rico or Miami had to be taken in order to connect. The flights are being added as Haiti seeks to develop tourism.
The return flights are on Friday with a direct flight from Santo Domingo to Port-au-Prince.
The flights provide Haiti with nonstop connections to Jamaica and the DR.
Mr. Trevor Sadler, CEO of interCaribbean Airways, said: "We are pleased to offer these new routes to give travelers more choices and more connectivity across the Caribbean and support Haiti as it grows its appeal to the vacation visitor, while opening up new business opportunities. We look forward to increasing the frequency and number of destinations we serve in the new year".
Carnival announces inaugural season for Amber Cove in Puerto Plata
Carnival Cruise Line has announced that eight Carnival ships with five new itineraries from four US homeports will call at Amber Cove during the Puerto Plata port's inaugural season. The inaugural cruise will be by the Carnival Victory, set to arrive on 6 October 2015 for a day-long call. The Carnival Victory's visit will be the first of 37 calls by eight Carnival ships from October 2015 to April 2016. Carnival ships that will be stopping at Amber Cove are the Carnival Breeze, Carnival Glory, Carnival Splendor and Carnival Victory from Miami, Carnival Conquest from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Valor from Port Canaveral, Fla., and Carnival Fantasy from Charleston, South Carolina.
"Amber Cove is destined to become a cornerstone in creating new itineraries from several US home ports," said Terry Thornton, Carnival's senior vice president of itinerary planning. "It will provide an unmatched combination of 'fun in the sun' activities and eco-tourism opportunities along with unique sightseeing, dining and cultural experiences to create a lifetime of wonderful vacation memories for our guests," he added.
The new port will have two berths that can accommodate up to two large post-Panamax cruise ships simultaneously.
Carnival promises that visitors to Amber Cove will be able to choose from one of the most extensive shore excursion programs available in the Caribbean, with a wide array of landside experiences in addition to the Ocean World entertainment park that is a few minutes away. The cruise line highlights that dozens of shore excursions will be available, from cross-country adventures in 4x4 Terracross buggies that traverse the rugged countryside and horseback riding on the beach to snorkeling in crystal-clear waters and swimming in a pristine natural river pool. Guests can also travel via speedboat to Paradise Island, one of the Caribbean's top spots for snorkeling and scuba diving, or visit rural coffee plantations and sample traditional Dominican cuisine, rum and seasonal fruit.
Amber Cove will also provide easy and convenient access to the nearby historic town of Puerto Plata, named by Christopher Columbus when he discovered the island in 1492. Puerto Plata is home to the first fort built by European settlers in the New World. Visitors to the city can shop in the bustling downtown area featuring numerous artist studios and rum and cigar factories or stroll along the famed Malecon, a three-mile-long open air beachfront boardwalk dotted with bars, restaurants and shops.
In preparation for the arrival of the cruises, the local branch of the Tour Operators Association (Opetur), the Puerto Plata Tourism and Culture Cluster and the Puerto Plata Chamber of Commerce are certifying businesses that will be recommended to do business with the cruise ship passengers.
Nonstop flights to Punta Cana from New Orleans and Buffalo
Sunwing Airline has announced direct nonstop flights to Punta Cana from New Orleans and Buffalo for tourists booking its affiliate Vacation Express packages.
US travelers can now travel to Punta Cana direct from New Orleans' Louis Armstrong International Airport. The Vacation Express tour company, based in Atlanta, announced the non-stop flights beginning 14 May to 27 August 2015.
The Buffalo-Punta Cana flights are scheduled to start on 14 February 2015 running through 9 May. Many Canadians residing in southern Ontario prefer to use the Buffalo Niagara International Airport for travel instead of the Toronto international airport.
