United Airlines Adding New Flights to Dominican Republic, Belize

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 18, 2020

United Airlines is kicking off a new Caribbean expansion headlined by the launch of new service to destinations including the Dominican Republic and Belize. 

That includes the launch of new nonstop service from Denver to Belize City, Belize, along with new service from Denver to San Jose, Costa Rica. 

On Dec. 17, United will be launching a new route from Washington, DC to Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, part of a growing Caribbean network that includes flights from Washington to 10 destinations in the Caribbean.

This winter, United is also planning to ramp up its flights to the Mexican Caribbean, too, including a relaunch of flights from Cleveland to Cancun on Dec. 19; an expansion of service from New York to Cancun; an increase of flights from Chicago to Cozumel and an increase of service from Houston to both Cancun and Cozumel. 

The Dominican Republic, Cancun and Belize have all already reopened their borders for international tourism, with Belize the most recent to do so.

United also said it would be increasing its service between San Francisco and Cancun this winter.

“These new routes highlight the continued expansion of our network and build upon our strong presence in Latin America,” said Patrick Quayle, United’s vice president of International Network and Alliances at United Airlines. “Our new and increased service offers travelers more opportunities to find warm-weather getaways and visit friends and family over the winter season.”

While, like its competitors, United’s flight schedule will be significantly reduced from a year ago, the additions in the wider Caribbean show confidence by the carrier in the future of Caribbean tourism. 

Indeed, United earlier this month announced a broad relaunch of service to a host of Caribbean destinations, with plans to either relaunch or expand service to 26 routes in the wider Caribbean-Mexico region this winter.
