The routes with the highest number of flights arriving and departing from the Dominican Republic are those of New York, Miami, Panama, and San Juan, according to economist Nassim José Alemany.
In the analysis “The chart of the week”, made for the firm Deloitte, the expert indicated that the route of greater flow of passengers is that of New York – Santo Domingo, which moved in 2017 some 950,000 passengers; followed by the route New York – Santiago, with 860,000; then there is Toronto – Punta Cana, with 544,000 passengers; Miami – Santo Domingo, with 500,000; and New York – Punta Cana, with 444,000.
“Of the five largest routes, which represent 24% of the total passenger flow annually, three of these go to New York (specifically to JFK airport),” he said, according to Listin Diario.
According to Alemany, in the last 10 years, the number of annual flights arriving and leaving the country has increased by more than 32,000, reaching a total of 102,373 in 2017,
The report states that Dominican airports moved a total of 13.8 million passengers in 2017. A little more than half of those passengers did so through the Punta Cana airport, even though the two routes that most people move annually are not in that locality.
