“We want to emphasize that in the Dominican Republic and, especially in the eastern region of the country, airports are providing services to all passengers.”
The international airports of Punta Cana and La Romana are operating normally this Tuesday, after having paralyzed operations, following the damage caused by Hurricane Fiona, which hit the eastern part of the country as it passed through on Monday.
This was confirmed by the executive director of the Airport Department (DA), Victor Pichardo, during a tour of both airport terminals, informing that this Tuesday was that the La Romana International Airport resumed operations, while Punta Cana did so after midday on Monday.
“We were able to check throughout the tour, in the airports of Punta Cana and La Romana, that all state agencies are working normally,” said the official after highlighting the resumption of operations in La Romama.
During his tour of the airports, Pichardo, together with a DA commission, confirmed that the areas such as waiting rooms, access control, immigration and others are ready for the regular development of operations.
He pointed out that this weekend the La Romama airport will resume its regular operations with scheduled commercial flights, while in Punta Cana there are more than 65 flights scheduled for Tuesday 20.
“We want to emphasize that in the Dominican Republic and, especially in the eastern region of the country, the airports are back to normal; they are providing services to all passengers,” said Pichardo.
