Passengers stranded for several days at Las Américas International Airport (AILA) as a result of Dutch Antilles Express’ (DAE) failure to transport
Santo Domingo.- The Airport Department will intercede on behalf of the passengers who have been stranded for several days at Las Américas International Airport (AILA) as a result of Dutch Antilles Express’ (DAE) failure to transport them after the Curacao-based airline apparently went out of business. The Dominican Civil Aviation Authority says it has not received any formal notification of the airline’s collapse.
The airport authorities say that regional manager Francisco Almonte and AILA station chief Juan Almonte, representing Dutch Antilles Express, have committed to covering the costs of the airline tickets in order to transport the stranded passengers to their destinations as soon as possible.
DAE has also committed to publishing a communiqué in a local newspaper explaining the airline’s situation and meeting its responsibilities to the stranded passengers who are due compensation for their ordeal, which began last Saturday.
