Beginning Nov. 16, Pan American World Airways (PAWA) Dominicana will operate two flights per day between the cities, and making Miami the airline’s first destination outside of the Caribbean. The Dominican Republic is currently MIA’s fourth-busiest international market, with more than one million total passengers annually.

The Santo Domingo-based carrier will utilize MD-83 aircraft seating 160 passengers for the route, which is also served by American Airlines from MIA.
Besting PAWA by about two months, Dominican Wings will begin serving the Santo Domingo-Miami route on Sept. 29. The carrier will begin a single weekly flight from MIA to both Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) and SDQ.
MIA began September with 103 passenger and cargo carriers, the most of any U.S. airport. It will end the month with an even bigger lead with the addition of four new international passenger airlines and one new cargo-only airline. As previously reported by TheTravelPro, MIA welcomed Silverwings and Surinam Airways earlier in the month.
