Direct Flights to Punta Cana Proving Popular with North Bay Travellers

Montreal, October 12, 2011

Transat Holidays and Nolitours (both members of Transat A.T. Inc.) are thrilled with the response they have received from area residents and travel agents as they launch non-stop service from Jack Garland Airport to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. The new flights, which are included in vacation packages sold by both companies, will operate Tuesdays from December 20, 2011 to April 3, 2012. Both tour operators are extremely satisfied with sales so far, and welcome the work that will be carried out to expand capacity at Jack Garland Airport.
“Our flexible flight programs, superior vacation products and appealing promotions are paying off, and our winter season out of North Bay is shaping up to be a successful one. We’ve listened to our clients, and our mission remains the same: to offer high-quality products that meet travellers’ needs,” said Denise Heffron, Vice-President, National Sales and Commercial. “We obviously welcome the renovations in the waiting area at Jack Garland Airport as they will help enhance our customers’ vacation experience,” she added. 

A Winter Favourite

Punta Cana is among the most popular winter destinations for Canadians and is known worldwide for its endless white-sand beaches, lagoons and variety of water sports practiced along the coral coasts. Its vast sun-kissed landscapes favour visits to typical villages and horseback riding through sugar cane plantations. Transat’s long-term presence in the country has enabled the company to secure contracts with 42 hotels of all categories. Excursions can also be booked on site or prior to departure through Transat Holidays and Nolitours.
