Aeropuertos Dominicanos Siglo XXI (Aerodom) informed that it put into operation (on a provisional basis) a new space on the third level of the Las Americas International Airport (AILA), to offer security and migration services for departing passengers.
This new space, which is part of the areas intervened as part of the expansion project of the central atrium of the passenger terminal, will allow passengers to carry out their security and migration processes to leave the Dominican Republic in a faster and more comfortable way.
The area has five security inspection points with new X-ray machines and metal detector arches, 18 passport control stations and six self-service stations of the Automated Migration Control System (Auto Gate) of the Directorate General of Immigration, which reduces the check-in time for Dominican passengers of legal age by avoiding the need to present themselves to immigration inspectors.
“We are delighted to put this new area into service, which is the result of VINCI Airports’ investment and quality strategy to offer a better experience at all its airports. We will continue working to improve the quality of service that all our users receive,” said Mónika Infante Henríquez, Aerodom’s general manager.
Las Americas International Airport, which serves the capital city of Santo Domingo, is the main air terminal in the Dominican Republic due to its location. Since the reopening of the Dominican borders on July 1, 2020, this airport has handled the highest number of flights and passengers in the country, with an average of more than 65 flights per day.
