Delta Air Lines Is Launching New Dominican Republic Flights

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - February 6, 2024

While much of its growth in recent years has come in the cruise industry, the Dominican Republic’s Puerto Plata remains one of the most popular places to visit in the country.

Now, Delta Air Lines has announced plans for a brand-new nonstop route to the hotspot on the country’s north coast.

Beginning in November, Delta will be adding a new daily nonstop flight between Atlanta and Puerto Plata, connecting the carrier’s hub with the increasingly popular, mostly all-inclusive destination.

“Delta’s new daily service to Puerto Plata from Atlanta will allow customers to explore the historic fort of San Felipe and vibrant Amber Cove,” Delta said in a statement.

Amber Cove is one of the city’s popular cruise ports.

But Puerto Plata isn’t just a haven for large cruise ships and larger resorts.

It’s also home to a vibrant cultural offering and some terrific luxury hotels, most notably the celebrated Casa Colonial.
