Rise in demand for flights accelerates airport expansion in the DR

The demand for flights to the Dominican Republic is accelerating in an extraordinary way the expansion of the country’s main airports, with the aim of continuing to offer passengers a quality and much more dynamic service in line with the new times.

For this reason, the Puntacana Group is carrying out several infrastructure works in some of its projects to improve the customer experience and at the same time expand business in the face of greater demand.

The company is investing US$90 million in the Punta Cana International Airport with terminal B2, which will be inaugurated next May, and at the same time it is investing US$200 million in the Logistics Center, as this digital had published.

With this addition to its facilities, the terminal will be able to receive 1.5 million more passengers.

Likewise, the administration of Aeropuertos Dominicanos Siglo XXI (Aerodom) made an investment of more than RD$1 billion in the International Airport of the Americas (AILA), last year, to expand and renovate the central atrium of the passenger terminal, which now has a new and varied commercial offer, in addition to an optimal gastronomic experience for the enjoyment of users.

The terminal project included the relocation and modernization of security and migration services to streamline processes and expedite border procedures.

In this sense, the CEO of Arajet, Víctor Pacheco Méndez, corroborated the need that exists in the country, and specifically in Santo Domingo, to have a new airport, as Mónika Infante, director of Aerodom, had already informed that by 2026 or 2027 the construction of a second air terminal in Las Américas is contemplated, to extend to new frequencies and routes that will allow the arrival of a greater number of tourists and regular passengers.

On the other hand, the Cibao International Airport announced the beginning of the first phase of the expansion project, which will last about two and a half years.

This stage involves the arrangement of more than 60,000 square meters and contemplates the construction of a new passenger terminal, roads and external transit accesses, as well as a parking lot.
