Aerodom: Puerto Plata airport runway will close in May for works

Aeropuertos Dominicanos Siglo XXI (Aerodom) informed that the works of the second phase of repair and remodeling of the runway of the Gregorio Luperón International Airport (AIGL) of Puerto Plata would close the infrastructure to all air traffic between May 8 and 17, 2023.

The works to be carried out involve an investment of more than US$4.5 million. They will extend the useful life of the runway, as it will level its central section and improve operating conditions for aircraft, as well as receive wide-body aircraft without restrictions, which will favor the expansion of flights between Puerto Plata and Europe, as well as other long-haul destinations.

The dates for the works were selected taking into account traffic flows, which, according to a press release, are lower during the ten days of the year.

In addition, Aerodom has been working with the airlines and tour operators that operate in the terminal to guarantee a minimum of inconvenience to passengers during this period.

The airport closure is causing my family lots of problems. My daughter is getting married 5/13 and as of now we’re having a difficult time securing transportation to lifestyles resort.
