Skerrit

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says his administration has no plans to re-open the Canefield Airport, just on the outskirts of the capital, to commercial traffic because it is not economical.

“Every dollar we make at the airport, we are spending 25, so it is not a viable enterprise. I think eventually the people of Dominica will have to take a decision on it as to whether we continue to have it as an airport or some other facility,” Skerrit said, adding “at the end of the day you have to take a responsible decision of the contribution of the Canefield Airport”.

The airport was opened during the 1990’s under the then Patrick John government and Skerrit acknowledged its importance and proximity to the capital.
