I'm planning a family vacation and that involves using a bunch of FF milles I have on my AV account. Problem is I'm booking a week in a Punta Cana resort, but AV only flies to SDQ, so I'm stuck between paying a driver to take us to Punta Cana, or book with CM BOG-PTY-PUJ, but I want to use my AV FF. Is there a chance I can book a domestic flight between SDQ and PUJ?? Take in mind I'll be travelling with 1 kid a 1 infant (6 months old...) so anything that can make our lifes easier would be really apreciated.
Thanks for your help.
Next flights: AV BOG-ADZ-BOG, AV-UA BOG-IAD-ORD-IAD-BOG, BOG-FLL-BOG, LA BOG-MIA-BOG J
Santo Domingo (JBQ) to Punta Cana (PUJ) = daily except Su. at 08:15 am (Sa. at 10:00 am) for U$ 100.00
Santo Domingo (JBQ) to Punta Cana (PUJ) = Mo., We., Fr. at 05:30 pm for U$ 100.00
"Please be aware that Higuero (JBQ) or also called "La Isabela" airport is located about 15 miles to the northwest of the City and Las Americas (SDQ) (the big international airport) is located about 15 miles to the east of the City. If your final destination is the City then you have to calculate about 30 min to go from either of both airports. If you have to move between the TWO airports then you have to calculate about ONE HOUR to go by taxi".
However, I wouldn't be surprised in SDQ-PUJ-SDQ is cancelled from time to time if there isn't enough demand, since it demands mostly on international transfers. Whereas JBQ (closer to the city) has a lot steadier demand from the local market (often business folks who go in either direction for the day or weekend).
