Company always are changing their routes. If there is a demand and they can make a profit this will change.

Ana-maria, we were also saddened by this news about a week ago. We know that the UK flights are always full but over the years there have been fewer and fewer flights. Tui/Thomson are pushing Punta Cana and the Rius there and so again it appears to be all about the Rius!

@bomberro...yes heading to the CM on 1st Jan will post a review when back to update on how things are there.

unfortunately don't think the company's will be changing there minds ...TUI (the only operator that goes north from UK) already tried pulling out this year but had to reinstate flights/ packages once the sale of the Riu's fell through ... but as of OCT 2018 there in nothing on offer to the North of the DR from them so looks like they are defo pulling out next year :(

So how about a short flight to another point in Europe to connect a different airline that does have POP flights?

Flying to somewhere else first then to PP could be a possibility but there are issues with extra costs, extra travelling time and extra holiday time needed from work ...think visits to the DR will have to be limited to PC after next Year :( well unless I win the lotto lol
