As per data from AeroRoutes, Air France has removed all future flights to the Dominican Republic from its schedule.

The airline had previously converted its service to Punta Cana and Santo Domingo to seasonal operation during the winter but has now decided to cancel all flights altogether. The route was operated by the carrier’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Air France currently operates a total of 43 Boeing 777-300ERs as well as 18 Boeing 777-200ERs and two Boeing 777 Freighters. The airline also has for its widebody fleet, Airbus A350-900s, Airbus A330-200s, and Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

The reason for the cancellation is not yet known, but it is possible that the airline is facing financial difficulties or that it is simply trying to consolidate its Caribbean network.

Air France is not the only airline that has reduced its service to the Dominican Republic in recent months. American Airlines and Delta Air Lines have also cut back on their flights to the country.

The cancellation of Air France’s flights is a huge blow to the Dominican Republic’s tourism industry. The country relies heavily on tourism, and the French carrier is one of the largest airlines that flies to the Dominican Republic.

The cancellation of these flights is likely to have a negative impact on the country’s economy when they need to sustain both demand and growth.

It is unclear when or if Air France will resume service to the Dominican Republic. The airline has not made any announcements about its future plans as of yet.
