gatwick flights to el catey

we went to el portillo last october and it was the last direct flight with firstchoice, so now a 4 hour transfer. has anyone heard if they are going to start flying to el catey in the future again? can't get my husband to do the transfer but would love to go back to this hotel. or does any other tour operator go there?

Unfortunately Thomson Airways don't have any direct flights into El Catey on their radar..........all flights are at the present and the foreseeable future are going to be using Puerto Plata (POP) airport.

There are no other UK tour operators that go there, also if you go down the road of booking with an independent operator such as Caribbean Warehouse they will use Thomson Airways flights...........so no there is no other way of flying into El Catey,

Must admit we are in the same position no way will we consider that transfer especially as Thomson cant seem to get their act together with a safe reliable comfortable transfer - hope that all the complaints that they get will help them reconsider this decision - not sure what the issue is we have been to this part of the world from Gatwick and Manchester on several occasions and the flights have always been full - I am sure that a lot of people would rather have the transfer in the UK if for example the only outbound flight was from Gatwick to El Catay rather than offering both Manchester and Gatwick from the UK.
