Delta allowing some passengers to cancel trips to Dominican Republic

Delta Airlines will allow some passengers to get out of their booked trips to the Dominican Republic.

The company says it will give waivers to passengers who have tickets to Punta Cana.

That’s where at least 10 American tourists have died within the last year, but the causes are not entirely clear.

Delta passengers must rebook their travel to the Dominican Republic prior to November 20th–or get credit to fly somewhere else.

As for other destinations in the Dominican Republic–Delta says it will work with passengers on a case-by-case basis.

American, Jet Blue and Sun Country Airlines say they’ll also work with their passengers who want to change or cancel Dominican flights.

Analysts say flight cancellations to the Caribbean nation have been soaring, while new bookings are down.

But the Dominican Tourism Minister says the deaths have been exaggerated.
