Airlines[edit]

Hi, 200.88.32.19, if you're going to add some, at least use capital letters and insert them in order. Thanks. Grusl 03:51, 27 March 2006 (UTC)


Many of these airlines are actually inacurate as most of these airlines don't actually have any schedule fights to Punta Cana, but may be requested for a charter flight as most airlines in the world do. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 65.11.207.110 (talkcontribs) 01:21, 4 January 2007 (UTC-7)

Many destinations have been added to airlines (such as Northwest Airlines) don't have regularly scheduled flights to/from Punta Cana. These destinations are probably a charter. Bucs2004 (talk) 16:29, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

Eos Airlines[edit]

A discussion of whether or not Eos Airlines should be included on the list of airlines serving this airport, considering that the airline is on its way out of business, can be found on the WikiProject Airlines talk page. -- Hawaiian717 (talk) 20:09, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Terminal 2[edit]

The article claims that Terminal 2 is only used for domestic departures, this is contrary to what I found when I was there with Terminal 2 been used by Copa Airlines and US Airways for international flights. If this section was sourced I would be less concerned - but it isn't. I am going to remove the domestic only comments as disputable and unsourced information, unless anyone objects here. The article does already comment that American Eagle uses the terminal for flights to San Juan - though I think it is more complex than that. Terminal 1 and 2 are directly connected terminals that share a check-in area and departure lounges, meaning there is probably not as clear separation of flights from one terminal than another as the article suggests.

http://www.puntacana.com/page.aspx?id=16&mid=3 - Terminal VIP is known as Terminal 2 and Terminal FBO is the terminal for private flights. ChezSant (talk) 03:40, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

[1] says there are 8 gates, plus a VIP and FPO terminal. The source does not say, but I know there are, four gates in Terminal One, and four gates in Terminal Two. Terminal One and Two are actually the same building (with the latter being an extension of the former) and are defiantly both used for commercial flights, which is what the source may be referring to collectively as 'Punta Cana International Airport Commercial Terminal' - there is no reference at all to the name Terminal One or Two. No source there says Terminal 2 = VIP terminal, although there is a VIP room in Terminal Two as the source describes. Camaron | Chris (talk) 10:05, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Delta to Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul[edit]

Per NW/DL booking engines, DL flights to DTW and MSP will be operated by Northwest and not Delta. Yes, NW is a subsidiary of Delta but NW is still a seperate carrier (with different codes, crew, aircraft, etc.). So, Detroit and Minneapolis/St. Paul needs to be listed as "Northwest Airlines". Cheers! B'ham35242 (talk) 20:32, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Delta to Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul[edit]

Northwest Airlines is now a Delta Air Lines subsidiary, which means that NWA will no longer exist as of the end of this year. Now NWA flights are been partially moved to Delta Air Lines, which is the one whose's going to operate MSP-PUJ-MSP / DTW-PUJ-DTW routes. Delta has shown that two routes (with CVG-PUJ-CVG) in its website, thing that NWA has not published in its website.

Also, some of those routes are also operate by NWA (DTW-FCO, ATL-NRT), if you try to book the flights they are clearly martketed as NWA flights. B'ham35242 (talk) 04:25, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes you can book all Delta flights in NWA website and also all NWA (holly operated by Delta) in the Delta's website. That is a result of the merge.

Since Delta is the Parent Company of NWA, and NWA will no longer exist, PUJ-MSN/DTW routes should be listed as Delta Air Lines destinations. Regards... ChezSant (talk) 03:18, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes but the flights are still marketed as NWA. See the Delta talk page for more details. Thanks! B'ham35242 (talk) 03:31, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeaaa Delta Air Lines sales both and NWA does too! however that's ONE airline....

ChezSant (talk) 03:37, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, but they are still operating seperately (different codes, certificates, fleet, etc.)...See the Delta talk page for more about this under "Delta operated by Northwest". Doesn't matter...flights are still operated by Northwest Airlines. B'ham35242 (talk) 03:49, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Also, here is a news article about the Delta-NWA merger [2]. If you look at the first question in the article. It clearly states that flights operations will continue to be the same as if the airlines did not merge. B'ham35242 (talk) 04:25, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Here's the DTW-PUJ flight (taken from NWA.com booking engine): Sat, Nov 21, 2009 Northwest Airlines 1303 Equipment: A320 Booking class: T/Coach Fare basis code: T7LC Depart: 8:50 AM Detroit, MI (DTW) Meal: Food for purchase

Arrive: 2:10 PM Punta Cana (PUJ) Approx. flight miles: 1,856 Duration: 4 hr 20 min Subject to Government Approval

Here is the MSP-PUJ flight: Sat, Dec 19, 2009 Northwest Airlines 1311 Equipment: A320 Booking class: T/Coach Fare basis code: TR3LC5 Depart: 7:15 AM Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN (MSP) Meal: Food for purchase

Arrive: 2:15 PM Punta Cana (PUJ) Approx. flight miles: 2,312 Duration: 5 hr 0 min Subject to Government Approval B'ham35242 (talk) 04:32, 10 August 2009 (UTC)


Additional clarification
To reiterate what B'ham35242 has said: PUJ to ATL, CVG, JFK will be operated by Delta Air Lines. PUJ to DTW, MSP will be operated by Northwest Airlines.
NWA may be owned by Delta, but it remains a separate airline. The two have not merged yet; the merger is a stated goal for next year. Until then, they operate under their own codes, using their own aircraft.
So, once again: Delta and Northwest are NOT the same airlines. Not yet. Thanks. Jasepl (talk) 05:36, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Clarify, DL already flies from PUJ to ATL/JFK. CVG is a new seasonal route beginning December 19. PUJ to DTW, MSP will be operated by Northwest Airlines. PUJ-DTW (which begins November 21), PUJ-MSP (which begins December 19) has not begun yet. Therefore, they are to be listed seperately. Already made a side-note to the table. B'ham35242 (talk) 06:13, 10 August 2009 (UTC)


Also, it is not "Delta Air Lines operated by Northwest Airlines". DL hopes to get a single certificate by December 2009....so it needs to stay listed as "Northwest Airlines" for 4 months then we can write it as DL operated by NW" then to "Delta" by Febraury 2010. 74.183.173.237 (talk) 03:35, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
