The Spanish-based Air Europa airline recently added a second daily flight to Santo Domingo in order to fill the gap recently left by Iberia when it decided to cancel its traditional route to the Dominican capital.
Air Europa announced that it will commence a service from London-Gatwick from 16 December 2013 to La Romana. The service will be on their Airbus A330-200 and is available with connection via Madrid, in time for the Christmas peak season.
This is to complement the services it added earlier this year to Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic. Air Europa took over Iberia routes in Latin America earlier this year and have strengthened their position by acquiring three A330-300 and A330-200 aircrafts.
