Dominican Republic, March 13, 2017.- The Polish tour operator Rainbow Tours announced the arrival of two new flights every three weeks, from Warsaw Airport (WAW) to Punta Cana (PUJ), starting from November 2017 until March 2018.
The information was offered by the deputy Minister of Tourism, Fausto Fernández, during the recent celebration of the International Tourism Exchange (ITB Berlin), in which he expressed the massive interest of new companies in the Caribbean destination.
“Rainbow showed incredible enthusiasm for Dominican Republic during negotiation talks, and for us this agreement is of the utmost importance, since it increases the presence and exposure of our country in the European market,” said Fernández.
