ST. CROIX, U.S. Virgin Islands, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Seaborne Airlines, the fastest growing airline in the Caribbean, is pleased to announce the launch of service to its 18th airport, Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (SDQ) with non-stop service from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) effective April 15, 2014. Santo Domingo will be Seaborne’s fourth destination within the Dominican Republic, the others being La Romana, started in December, 2013; Punta Cana beginning February 14, 2014 and Santiago beginning March 15th, 2014. All markets are planned to have daily service.

“San Juan to Santo Domingo provides another access point to the U.S. market and reinforces the importance of Puerto Rico as a connecting point in the Caribbean,” said Gary D. Foss, president and chief executive officer of SeaStar Holdings, parent company of Seaborne. “And the teaming local market between Puerto Rico’s capital and that of the Dominican Republic will benefit from the added service offering.”

“As the largest air access hub of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico is committed to providing five-star service to the Caribbean region. We are certain this new Seaborne route between San Juan and Santo Domingo will further stimulate the flow of passengers between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The addition of yet another flight to our Luis Munoz Marin airport provides greater access to a broad network of regional and international destinations to travelers while, at the same time, boosting Puerto Rico’s economic growth.”
