FAQs - booking Dominican Republic flights

  • Which Dominican Republic airport should I fly into when visiting Santo Domingo?

    Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic's capital, is the island's primary tourist area. When visiting the region, consider flying into Las Americas International Airport, about a 42-minute drive from the city center and 17-minute drive from Boca Chica beach. If the specific area in Santo Domingo is far from the airport, you can fly into SDQ and then take another method of transportation to your desired destination.

  • Can I rent a vehicle at Santo Domingo Airport?

    Renting a vehicle will be ideal if you prefer private means of transit across the country. The international airports in the Dominican Republic offer vehicle rental services. If you are flying into Santo Domingo airport, you can access car rental agencies, including Avis, Budget, Dollar, Europcar, Hertz, Honda, National, Payless, Sixt, and Thrifty. The car rental agencies are in the arrivals hall of the north terminal.

    One of the best transit options from PUJ is a taxi. There are readily available fixed-rate taxis at the cab stands throughout the airport. Ensure you confirm the rates before starting the trip. You can also rent a vehicle at the airport from the on-site car rentals available. The airport is surrounded by hotels offering shuttle services to and from the airport for their guests. When checking a hotel, confirm that it provides a shuttle service from the airport. The most common transportation from the airport to the city center and other parts of the country is via bus. The buses leave at two-hour intervals beginning at 7 a.m. To ensure you get the bus if you are headed to far-off places, you can make a booking and then get to the bus stop at least an hour before departing.

  • Does Puerto Plata Airport have any lounges?

    If you are flying into Puerto Plata airport and would like a place to relax after your flight, consider visiting the airport lounges.

Top tips for finding cheap flights to the Dominican Republic

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Dominican Republic flight deals.
  • The Dominican Republic has seven international airports. There are only three main airports, however: Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ), Las Americas International Airport (SDQ), and Puerto Plata International Airport (POP).
  • If you are headed east of Dominican Republic, consider flying into Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) as the airport is closer to that region. The airport serves large airlines such as British Airways, Delta, Southwest, and American Airlines. PUJ services more airlines than any other airport in the country.
  • The Dominican Republic is strict about bringing pets to the island. You must ensure your cat or dog has a veterinary certificate with a maximum of up to 15 days and a microchip.
  • If you are flying to Dominican Republic Santo Domingo in February, expect traffic on flights, especially Sundays, as the Dominican Carnival event takes place every Sunday in the capital city.
  • If you want to connect to other islands around the Dominican Republic, flying into La Isabela International Airport (JBQ) is ideal. The airport is well connected to other Caribbean islands, hence it’s convenient for exploring the other islands.
  • As you’re booking your flight to the Dominican Republic, you’ll likely notice that there are a handful of different cities available to fly into. Santo Domingo is the air hub in the Dominican Republic that receives the most international air traffic, but flights from the US also arrive in Santiago, Punta Cana, and a few other smaller airports.
  • For exploring the southern part of the Dominican Republic, it can be beneficial to fly into the neighboring city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. This city is located near the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic and receives a high volume of international air traffic, unlike the Dominican airport that serves the same region.
  • Dominican Pesos are the national currency of the Dominican Republic but select tourist areas around Punta Cana and select other tourist areas do accept US Dollars. If you’re traveling outside of these areas, check for ATMs in the airports, where you can use your American debit and credit cards to get Dominican Pesos.
  • Getting to your accommodation after your flight to the Dominican Republic can range in difficulty depending on whether your hotel is in a remote location or not. Shuttles, city buses and public buses can get you around metropolitan areas, but a car rental is required for the more rural or off-the-beaten-path areas of the Dominican Republic.
  • For travelers looking to extend their travels in Puerto Rico after flying into the Dominican Republic, you’ll have a few options for getting there. Flights from all major cities in the Dominican Republic can connect you with San Juan, and there is also a ferry that operates from Santo Domingo to San Juan.

The flight was delayed but we got to our final destination.

The flight was delayed but we got to our final destination.

Boarding was great. The flight landed early. It took the crew over an hour and a half to bring out drinks. I paid to upgrade my seat to Comfort+ only to be near a crying/screaming baby who was seldom quiet. Noise-cancelling earbuds didn’t even help. Waste of money to upgrade.

Boarding was good, was able to get on early and get settled in . Loved the glass of wine before take off. Once in the air the service was amazing, from the snacks, drinks and the food was good. The flight attendants were very good and attentive. Love flying with Delta..

Seats in first class on the E175 recline too far back. I was in 2A, and the man in 1A fully reclined almost the entire flight. It took 6-7 inches of space away from me and made it very difficult to work on my laptop.

On 2 different flights the wifi was horrible and there was no drink or snack service.

Wifi wasn’t working well so we couldn't view any media.

Flight was late. Club was full. Experience is exactly what I expected.

Carly the flight attendant was extremely helpful and very accommodating to passengers on the flight from what I noticed. Couldn't be more satisfied with the service and assistance from Delta's flight attendant, Thanks again Carly!!

I didn’t not like that I could not select my seat and ended up with the worse seat.

I didn’t like that I could not select my seat and was assigned a seat when I checked in at LAX

Terrible. Flight was cancelled due to the weather in the east and sout east(florida). Did not get any compesation of any kind. According to them, it was not under their control so I lost all the money paid for the 2 fairs from Raleigh, NC to Orlando, Fl.

great flight. Pilot was communicative, flight attendants were excellent. Really nice experience except my tv didn’t work.

Overall, the flight was better than the flight I took to go to Florida, which had a bunch of problems. The crew is really nice and the plane was new so it had a small problem when we were on the runway, but the flight itself was great. They even made some time back up, which is always a good thing.

at the time for boarding the lady just call Group A and no other goups and everybody from A to F go inside without the right turn,and when we get in theres no more spsce for carry on , the ones that get in at not correct group from the back occupy our space !!!!! a mess !!!!

There were multiple delays but JetBlue tried to make the boarding and departure process as quick and efficient as possible. The crew was as detached from reality as could be, meaning: not very friendly and just doing things by the numbers.

I had back trouble prior to my flight and everyone was great about helping me.

Jetblue needs to improve on Onboarding as it seems to always be behind on departing. It never leaves on time. I would recommend to have an earlier Onboarding in order to leave on time and respect your customers time as well.

40 minute delay before take off after boarding flight. Bright lights throughout night flight due Issues with light panels. In flight Entertainment nonfunctional

Everything was good except for deplaning in NY. Took way too long!!

Jet Blue keeps getting iit wrong. 4 hour mechanical delay followed by terrible boarding experience. This is my third horrific jet blue flight in 2024. I am going to try to avoid this loser in the sky

Nice flight, nice crew but no cookie or napkin with my seltzer.

Trip was smooth bumpy from the wind but no issues at all the crew attendant was very pleasant and had great customer service

This was a Lufthansa flight. Disappointing main meal. Very rough over Canada and arrival at FRA. IFE was almost unusable.

It got me where I needed it to; not much more. It had no competition so that was why I chose it.

I liked everything about the flight. The service was excellent!

The customer service was excellent! Check-in, baggage check-in, boarding, the flight went very smooth.

The flight was delayed instead of leaving at 11 it left at 12.20

United WiFi is consistently unusable (it can take 10 mins to load a single web page). If you need Wifi to do work, be prepared to lose half a day of productivity.

We waited to takeoff for about 1 hour delay for a 20 min flight.

Good dinner and nice plane.Smootz flight. Breakfast had no sweet option. Seats hardly reclined.

The flight was delayed for over four hours due to “maintenance “. Your ground staff made no efforts to avoid my family missing their connecting flight to London. They did not try to reroute them and didn’t even offer meal vouchers without being asked. My daughter, her husband and four children were in the States for our son’s celebration of life service. They experienced rude and unhelpful staff in Asheville. The lack of communication was disgraceful. They missed their connecting flight and the first rebooking. Then the 2nd rebooked flight was delayed by over two hours. They didn’t leave Charlotte until 1:30 AM. Since returning home my granddaughters sleep has been so disrupted that they are overly tired and cry hysterically at bedtime. I have already contacted you regarding compensation but have yet to receive a response. All I’ve received is a canned wrote response. This is not acceptable!!! When my wife and I traveled to England in December on your partner, British Airlines, we were delayed for 4 and one half hours. We missed our connecting train to Leeds and had to pay double. They not only reimbursed our extra train expense, they also refunded half our airfare. And upon our return to the States we were surprised to find that they had upgraded us for free! Now that’s customer service!!! I look forward to a prompt real human response. Sincerely, Jon Cannon

Crew were attentive and friendly. Flight was smooth and early! I enjoyed the less crowded plane. Thank you!

No complaints. The flight was uneventful, which is a good thing.

Was as expected. Good leg room on planes - much appreciated.

after boarding on phx to sjd, crew discovered that one of the megaphones was either out of date or not working. It took 90 minutes to get a replacement and do the "paperwork." That is really unacceptable. Why wasn't the megaphone problem discovered before boarding? Is it part of normal maintenance check? who is responsible for checking. How can paperwork take that long? Fortunately, SJD was final destination for most travelers so very few if any passengers had to miss connections.

We sat on the plane for 1 hour because the airline was short handed could not be unloading.

We sat on runway for an 1 hour because they were short handed at key west airport was not fun

Awful customer service on the phone. No phone number on the website to call a real person. Website says changes are no charge but this is a lie. I had a cheaper ticket through Kayak therefore Finnair wouldn’t change it unless I would pay the entire fare again. I begged but their agents at the airport were rude and the online chat person cut off the call with no help. Super disappointed. Wont fly this airline again and will tell everyone I meet how bad it is. Crew on the flight was nice but otherwise huge disappointment.

Fight crew was not very attentive and the bastions were gross!

Generally good but we were delayed almost two hours from the original time of purchase. The pilot claimed an internal issue then an external equipment issue that needed to be adddressed. He made up a lot of the time.

Terrible as usual!!!! Very unprofessional and rude flight attendants! You get what you pay for! HORRIBLE

There was a .79 discrepancy between the cost of the flight and what was paid. Spirit didn't let me obtain my boarding pass until the .79 (seventy nine cents) was paid. Contacting their customer service to resolve the issue was a nightmare that involved many wait minutes and two different departments. The price Kayak gave to Affirm, whom I used to pay for the tickets, and the price Spirit charged for the flight were off by the .79. I almost lost the ticket because of the hassle.

My experience was above excellent!!!! First the lady that pushed me in the wheelchair to the gate was outstanding!!! Then the ladies at the gate went over and beyond, by helping me fill out the immigration form! I would not have been able to get to Guatemala without their help!!! God bless them all! They were amazing 🙏❤️🙏

They seemingly have no respect for their customers, on any level. Avoid flying spirit, they will bump you to another flight without thinking twice so they can sell your seat, no joke.

They sure know how to make you feel like you're packed into a sardine can. Most uncomfortable seat you imagine.

Very bad, delayed flight. I was offered 2 vouchers for inconvenience, but those vouchers aren’t usable. Spirit airlines is betraying people.

Flying on Spirit Airline is a penny-pinching beat down.

Kayak does not know that spirit airlines charged me $70 to fly. But the bag check-in was $89 each way. This is false advertising to lure people. Spirit airlines sends bunch of emails after flight purchases to buy wifi, better seats, priority boarding, secure reserved seats. This is false advertising. Up front pricing. I would of flown jet blue or Alaska airlines.

One hour late taking off. Concerning, very hard landing. Uncomfortable seats with no recline. Extremely slow baggage claim. Very professional, knowledgeable flight attendants. Brand new, very clean plane.

First....my trip was from Ft. Myers to Philly (not the other way around). Plane was clean, staff was friendly and flight was efficient with boarding and flight time. Thumbs up all around.
