The airfields at Constanza and Montecristi will be converted into international airports

The airfields at Constanza and Montecristi will be converted into international airports. They have occasionally served as international ports of entry, but the intention is to open them for regular international traffic.

The mountain valley airfield in Constanza will undergo modifications to allow the export of fresh produce to the United States and other countries in the region. Currently, fresh produce must be transported from Constanza to La Vega on a road that is known for its many dangerous curves.

The airport in Montecristi, in the northwest, will also be remodeled and upgraded to regularly accommodate international flights, to promote tourism in the region.

The director general of the Dominican Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC), Alejandro Herrera made the announcement. He said IDAC is working in close coordination with the Airport Authority, headed by Marino Collante.

Herrera also told reporters that the airfield at Cabo Rojo could be linked with the International Airport Maria Montez in Barahona to boost tourism in the southwest. Herrera stressed the fact that tourism and air transportation are major supports of the Dominican economy.
