Looking at booking an air charter from Punta Cana to Las Terrenas. Expensive but not wanting to completely blow two vacation days on the drive. Please don't lecture me on poor flight planning to fly into PUJ and stay in Las Terrenas... I know. :(

Talked to Dominican Shuttles but my husband (he's a pilot) didn't feel comfortable with the type of plane they wanted to fly us all in. Over weight capacity.

Found another company - https://privateflightsdominicanrepublic.com/

Private Flights - Dominican Republic, the owner is Sylvain Maufrais

President of Acom Caribbean. Plane looks good. Prices as expected.

I haven't been able to find any reviews online. Anyone familiar with them?

HI Cheek100,

I was wondering if you ever found a good charter company. I am also having the same issue, trying to find a charter from POP to PUJ.

Thanks in advance,

I did! I’ll have to find the company. My husband is a pilot also so here’s what our experience was... the plane looked a bit rough and wasn’t what you’d get in the states. It was a Piper Cherokee 6. Both flights had a copilot also. My husband talked a lot with the pilot who was very experienced, over 3,000 air hours and is also an instructor. The flight was tight and not a ton of room but it’s a third world country and we went in knowing it wasn’t a jet, it’s a small plane.

Thank you so much for the reply. I was told that the small

Plane would be a Piper Navajo and no copilot but if I want a copilot they can arrange that. What would you and your husband suggest? The company that gave me this info is Dominican Shuttles.
