As more United States travelers head south to the Caribbean each year, airlines are responding with new stops and increased service on some of their routes.
The Dominican Republic’s increasing popularity is also increasing its accessibility. For example, next month, Delta plans to introduce nonstop flights from New York to Punta Cana, and will start flying direct from Atlanta to Santiago de Los Caballeros and Puerto Plata.
Air service is also increasing to some islands that have not been as well-known among Americans. Continental will begin flying nonstop from Newark to Bonaire next month. Delta will start flying from Atlanta to Trinidad, Martinique and Guadalupe in December, and begin weekly service to Tobago from Atlanta in February.
In January, Air Jamaica will start making an additional nonstop flight a week from New York to St. Lucia. And JetBlue, which started flying nonstop to Aruba from New York in September, plans to add another flight there next month.
