The new flight is in alignment with LATAM Airlines Group’s strategy to strengthen the connectivity of its international markets, particularly in Latin America.
Flights will depart on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and will operate Airbus A319 jetliners with capacity for 144 passengers. Flight JJ8104 will depart from Brasilia at 11:25 a.m. with estimated arrival in Punta Cana at 3:45 p.m. local time. The return flight, JJ8105, will leave Punta Cana at 10:55 p.m. and arrive in Brasilia at 7:10 a.m. local time the following day.
“We are constantly expanding our foreign network. Following Toronto, Punta del Este and Barcelona, this is the fourth new international destination in 2015,” said Claudia Sender, CEO of TAM, in a written release. “The service also reinforces our commitment to strategically promote our connectivity from Brasilia, where we recently launched non-stop flights to Orlando, in the United States, and Buenos Aires, in Argentina.”
The airport in Brasilia, Brazil’s federal capital, features the latest infrastructure and enjoys a strategic central geographic position in Brazil, offering fast direct connections to Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Porto Alegre and other cities.
Tickets for this new service between Brasilia and Punta Cana are available for flights departing between December 5, 2015, and March 15, 2016. The schedule of flights after this period is still pending authorization by Dominican authorities and will be announced soon.
