Getting to Dominican Republic


Most U.S. flights arrive at one of four international airports, Santo Domingo’s Las Américas (SDQ) and newer La Isabela aka Herrera (HEX), Puerto Plata’s La Únion (POP), or Punta Cana (PUJ).


American Airlines/American Eagle, Continental, Delta, JetBlue, Spirit, and US Airways all fly from the U.S. (only East Coast takeoffs fly non-stop and direct). Aerodomca, Caribe Air, and Takeoff Destination Service serve the smaller airports scattered through the country.
