After 10 years, commercial flights return to Dominican Southwest airport
Commercial flights through Barahona’s (southwest) Maria Montez International Airport resumed Thursday, which is expected to spur operations by other airlines and jump start the province’s and the region’s economy.
The Dominican airports management company Aerodom said the operations were resumed with the arrival of a passenger flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The terminal, despite its modern structure and a runway capable of receiving wide body jets, had remained practically inoperative since its inaugural in the late 1980s, except for a short-lived effort by the now defunct Air Santo Domingo in the late 1990s.
The Tourism Ministry, the Airports Commission, the Civil Aviation Institute, the Dominican Air Force, the Asociación of Barahona Residents in Puerto Rico (ABAPUR), Aerodom, and other agencies took part in the effort to reopening the Maria Montez terminal’s operations, which began with the arrival of a BE-19 airplane with 19 passengers and two crew, property of MN Aviation, which landed at 1:45 p.m., as part of a weekly schedule
In addition to the Maria Montez Aerodom manages the State-owned airports Luperon-Puerto Plata, Catey-Samana, Las Americas-Santo Domingo, La Isabela-Higuero and Arroyo Barril-Samana.
