While participating in the launching ceremony of the new flight operations, Porcella highlighted in a special way the marked interest shown by the Dominican registered airline in the rigorous compliance of the aeronautical regulations and the operational safety standards required by the IDAC, in accordance with the ICAO and the FAA of the United States.
