How long is your flight to Punta Cana?

I will be leaving from JFK in NYC in 8 days. We are flying JetBlue and have a 4 hour flight. I'm curious as to how long of a flight everyone else has.

Just a touch over 4 hours and 40 minutes from Toronto depending if the pilot puts his foot to the pedal !!

NY Neighbor ...

Welcome to the Forum !!

We've been traveling this Island for many years now....

I see that you are staying at Excellence~

Very cool!! Its a nice resort with a beautiful stretch of beach .... be careful of the water ... at times it can be ferocious...

Are you taking a transfer or going private? The ride from the airport is between 45-60 minutes, depending on how many stops on the transfer.... if you go private, it will be nicer and quicker.... IMO

As far as the flight... Jet Blue is Great - the only advice I can give you is that the door to exit, most times, opens at the rear and you are directly on the runway...

Enjoy this spectacular Island!

Hi StephenNYC - Our flight from Saskatoon (Saskatchewan, Canada) is 6 hours. That's a direct flight.

Hope you have a great time in PC.

Flying from Seattle rather than Vancouver for $$$ savings, with a 3+ hour layover in Atlanta, so approx 12 hours total from departing Seattle to arriving in PC.

We are going for 2 weeks so it's all good. Lots of time to get rested up :)

Do envy our eastern neighbours though who can get to pretty much anywhere in the Caribbean in 4 or 5 hours !

I love the West Coast , but flying from here sucks unless we are going to Hawaii (expensive) or the Pacific side of Mexico (so not our favourite part of the country).

Great topic Stephen! Im always curious as to how far a person travels to get to their paradise!

We fly out of Newark, so its about 4 1/2 hours non-stop flight.

We will also be at the Excellence but we need to wait till 12/7

Leaving Edmonton at 1015 Saturday am. Arriving in Toronto at 3:54, meeting friends at the airport Sheraton Hotel, oniste, able to walk/ shuttle to from terminal without going outside. Leaving Sunday am at 6:00am and arriving Punta Cana at 10:45. so we are 24.5 hours in transit. The bonus for us is, no red eye flights, and we get to meet our long time friends and start our vacation a day earlier. A direct flight was not available to us on the day we wanted only mid week, not the same day as our friends could go. We have travelled together for 8 years, it is our way of keeping our friendship alive now that we live 2500 milse apart.

I think my husband & I will be on that same 4-hour JetBlue flight out of NY, StephenNYC, but not till December 11 (and we're also staying at Excellence). Have a wonderful trip!
