World2fly is experiencing capacity growth in Portugal through its popular Lisbon-Punta Cana flights as Summer 2023 demand kicks into high gear.
As well as additional flights to be operated, equipment is being upgraded as well.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Lisbon Will Receive Another Punta Cana Flight…
From June 6, frequencies on the Lisbon-Punta Cana route will increase from once-weekly to twice-weekly, with a switch-over of equipment from the Airbus A330-300 to the A350-900.
The first weekly flight will depart Lisbon on Mondays at 1440 local time and arrive in Punta Cana at 1745 local time.
As for the return flight, this will depart at 1945 and arrive back in Lisbon at 0815 the next morning.
The second weekly flight, which will run on Tuesdays, will depart Lisbon at 1130 local time and arrive into Punta Cana at 1435.
For the return, this will then leave the Dominican Republic at 1750 and arrive back in Lisbon at 0620 the next morning.
World2fly and the Airbus A350…
The Airbus A350s with World2fly are on the Spanish register as opposed to its only A330-300 being in the Portuguese register.
In terms of seat capacity, this does represent an upgrade on the Lisbon-Punta Cana route, with the A330-300 sitting 388 seats in the all-economy as opposed to 432 on the A350-900.
World2fly does appear to be converting its fleet into an all-A350 fleet at the moment, with some more units due to be delivered in due course.
But for now, it is strong news for the carrier as air travel continues for services between Lisbon and Punta Cana.
