The Canadian airline WestJet resumed its services from the Gregorio Luperón International Airport in Puerto Plata (POP) to the Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), marking the restart of tourist flights between Canada and the North Coast of the Dominican Republic.

With this WestJet flight, operations are resumed between Puerto Plata and Canada, one of the main tourist source markets for the North Coast.

This new WestJet operation is being served in a Boeing 737-800 aircraft with capacity for 174 passengers. It arrives every Tuesday from Toronto at 1:25 pm and leaves for this same city from POP at 2:15 pm.

The weekly flight that was inaugurated this week will have an additional frequency in November, offering direct flights to Toronto on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Starting December 16, WestJet will have a daily flight to / from Toronto Pearson Airport.

When welcoming the flight, the director of North Cluster Airports, Carlos Rodolí, expressed his satisfaction at seeing the recovery in routes and the number of passengers that maintain the Gregorio Luperón airport operated by AERODOM, a company that is part of VINCI Airports.

“We are excited to welcome Canadian tourists again, so important to our area. We continually seek to offer more options to all those interested in flying through our airports. We hope that the commercial and tourist exchanges generated by this new route will contribute to the economic growth of our province,” he said.
