Regional carrier WINAIR has made its first commercial night flight into Dominica.
Last night, the aircraft flew in from St. Maarten carrying 13 passengers and landed at the Melville Hall Airport at about 8 p.m.
Ports Minister Rayburn Blackmoore had told a ceremony to launch CARICOM Airways’ Dominica-St.Lucia route at the Canefield Airport yesterday that WINAIR would begin its night flights this week and would land at 7:10 p.m.
“I think that is very historic,” he said yesterday.
Blackmoore took the opportunity on the other hand to assure that all the technical issues have been resolved with LIAT as it relates to night landing in Dominica.
“We have addressed all the concerns of LIAT in Melville Hall, all the technical concerns LIAT has,” he said
He added, “I want to really commend you again for WINAIR, because WINAIR never had any difficulty in coming to Dominica and of course recognizing the benefit to be had in the process LIAT is now saying that they are willing to come.”
