Dominica is expected to officially launch its night landing services in a matter of weeks.
“…Visit Dominica in a matter of weeks for the inaugural night landing when we will formally flick the switch and open the commonwealth of Dominica to 24 hours activity,” Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit told the official swearing-in ceremony of his 15-member cabinet Monday evening.
According to the Dominican leader, the new initiative is in keeping with promises made by government.
“When we said in our manifesto that we look forward to removing the hassle of air travel to Dominica, we were not gazing into the unknown,” the prime minister asserted.
“Two weeks ago we had the first such commercial landing in Dominica, where persons boarding a flight in New York, stopped for fuel in Miami and flew directly into Melville Hall in Dominica without any incident. Dominicans on that plane literally cried with pride and a sense of accomplishment that this had taken place and will shortly become a regular feature of our civil aviation experience,” the Dominican leader revealed.
