SkyTeam member Air Europa is offering €1,109 Business Class return trips from Amsterdam to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic in the Spring. Although the fare includes two checked bags of 23 kg (three pieces at selected OTAs) and seat selection, you will not earn any miles.

Info

Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.

You can find availability mostly in May, although there are some April departures (with May returns). The wet season starts in May, although there are only four rainfall days on average with an average daily temperature of 27.8 °C.

Our availability calendar will show you the cheapest roundtrips for a period of up to 28 days. After selecting your dates, it will lead you to the airline’s website or our flight search tool where you can compare online travel agencies (OTAs).

Air Europa is offering Business Class tickets from Amsterdam to Punta Cana for €1,109,

Flights are operated by Air Europa’s Boeing 787 aircraft which have a 2-2-2 configuration in Business Class.

Air Europa Business Class

Air Europa arranges seats in a 2-2-2 configuration. All seats are facing forwards with a slight angle towards the neighboring seat. While this is uncommon, it has not been criticized as too intimate. Especially the food & beverage service has received great reviews. A highlight of Air Europa’s Business Class is the baggage allowance of 3 x 23kg.

Due to the dense seating (for Business Class flights) and friendly flight attendants, Air Europa’s Business Class has been deemed to convince with warmth & personality, not luxury. A more detailed review can be found here (Boeing 787) and here (Airbus A330).

Search & Book

The sale has no expiry date, meaning that it can disappear at any moment. There is no minimum or maximum stay requirement.

You can easily browse the dates on Google Flights. Once you have selected the right dates you can book it on Air Europa’s website or at OTAs using our flight search tool. The fare can be €100 cheaper through online travel agencies and some even include a third checked-in bag.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:

  1. The Covid-19 Pandemic
    During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.

    Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
  2. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

    If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.

    This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
  3. Baggage Fees
    Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

Mileage

Air Europa issues tickets in booking class O, which does not earn you any miles at any program, unfortunately.
