Shutdown forces airline passengers to change plans
Santo Domingo.- The number of departing passengers decreased considerably yesterday, as airline executives blame it on the deficient transport to the Las Americas International Airport stemming from the general strike.
Few people were seen at the airport counters of American Airlines, American Eagle, Continental, Copa, Jet Blue, Delta and other carriers that service Dominican Republic, with flights to the United States, Puerto Rico, Panama among others.
The lack of transport by buses and taxis forced many travelers to miss their flights as they were unable to reach the terminal.
It was learned that most of the fliers who suspended their reservations was headed to Miami, New York, Atlanta, Boston, Puerto Rico, Caracas, Venezuela, Panama and other destinations covered by those airlines.
