    Default Aeropuerto las Americas

    SDQ - Santo Domingo / Las Americas Int'l Airport

    Las Americas airport is located to the east of Santo Domingo, near the city of Boca Chica. It has one single runway numbered 17/35, and the main terminal is placed more or less on the middle length of it.
    The single building has three floors. First floor is arrivals, second floor departures and the third floor has airline offices and some fast food restaurants. To the left of it is the old control tower and further away the cargo ramp. At the very left corner are some stored aircraft (Aeromar and TAL DC-6 and AeroChaco L-1049). To the right side of the terminal, is the former Dominicana hangar where they keep a full Dominicana colours DC-6 inside (HI-292CT), behind the hangar some more stored and wfu planes, like Dominicana B707 and many Trado DC- 6.

    Traffic at SDQ is dominated by American Airlines (almost 100% Airbus A300, occasionally they might have an MD11 depending on load factors) and American Eagle (Atr-42 and -72), with many flights during the day, morning hours mostly American, TWA and Continental, with some eventual Air Santo Domingo or other local carrier. After 13.00 some interesting traffic, as Aserca and Aeropostal from Venezuela (both DC-9, daily), Copa Airlines (B737-200), TWA B767-300ER daily from JFK, and at least two daily flights from San Juan(MD83). Iberia and Air France fly in at least 5 time a week (DC10 and B747-200/-300 respectively), and on the charter side, Canada 3000, Corsair, Sobelair, Condor, AOM, Lauda Air Italy, Martinair and Air Europa ad to the count. All those use to arrival at the afternoon as well, specially from Thursday to Sunday. The freight terminal also sees some activity, with UPS and DHL being the major players on the cargo side, besides Fine Air, and local carriers flying props. Domestic airlines like Air Santo Domingo, SAP and others operating mainly with Let 410 are also regular visitors at SDQ, though their main operating airport is Santo Domingo/La Herrera.

    Some spotting guidelines:

    1. Outside the terminal:

    Airport perimeter is quite big, and widely fenced, even so, some nice approach shots can be made whenever runway 17 is in use, they just fly over the road. To reach this spot, if coming from Santo Domingo city, just don't turn right to the airport but follow straight ahead, after passing under a bridge keep the right and look for the ALS masts. In case of coming from Boca Chica, the spot is located before the bridge that gives to the airport access road, and the ALS masts are at your left side. For runway 35 no suitable spot for approach shots available, as no way to get near to the approach path.

    2. Inside the terminal:

    The best spot to make photos is indeed at the Wendy's fast food restaurant (3rd floor) or at the Pizzarelli pizzeria (2nd floor). There are glasses but they are just slightly tinted and will not affect negatively the photo's quality. At Wendy's you have to buy something to stay near the windows, at the pizzeria not, although it is good idea to do so. Light here very good after 14.00 (beginning of May) until sunset, planes just taxi in front of you, and for photos, 400mm for departing B757 on the runway and around 50mm for MD11 taxing by the apron. During the morning forget about this place, as sun in front of you.

    3. Ramp access

    Airport authority is normally very nice and friendly, including towards the enthusiast. So, this means that getting a ramp access pass is not impossible, but I suggest you to write or fax in advance asking for it. This is the only way to make good photos of the old aircraft stored at the airport.

    As a suggestion, a good place to stay is at the nearby city of Boca Chica, you will find cheap hotels and guest houses. It is also much easier to get to the airport from there than if staying at Santo Domingo, some 25 km away. Other important advise is to keep open eyes with the people and with prices, specially hotels and taxis, ASK and FIX the price before. If you want, just e-mail me and I will be happy in provide you some addresses and some more hints.

    Air Santo Domingo aparte de los Let, tambien le han sido asignado 1 Beech 1900D y un Short 360 estos dos ultimos de SAP ( Servicios Aereos Profecionales); y según sus planes son de adquirir mas aeronaves incluyendo ERJ-145 esto aún no confirmado oficialmente.

    Sobre el Aeropuerto Internacional de Las Américas sigue aún dominado por American Airlines quien oferta 4 vuelos a Miami, 3 a New York y 2 a San Juan P.R. y su filial American Eagle 9 a San Juan P.R. 1 a Mayaguez y 1 a San Martin todos diarios en ATR-72 y dos de ellos a San Juan en ATR-42. los de American en A300, 757, 727 y 767 mayormente 300.

    Las de cargas DHL ( con 5 diarios a Miami 4 en 727-200 y 1 en 707) Fedex ( 2 semanales a Miami en 767F ), Leader Jet ( 2 semanales a Miami en 737-200F ), Fine Air ( 1 diario en DC-8-62F, se dice que Aeromar le paso el servicio de carga suya a esta ), Amerijet ( 2 diarios en 727-200F a Miami ), UPS ( 6 semanales a Miami en 757-200F ), Challenger Air ( 3 semanales a Miami en DC-10 y 757-200F uno de ellos el ultimo avion ), Tacsa ( charter desde Sur América ), Caribe Cargo ( charter a Europa y Sur América en A300 esta es dominicana, es unida a Heavy Lift ), y otras mas.

    TWA ya se retiro del pais por la fusion con American Airlines, igual se fue Canada 3000 por quiebra, City Bird y otras.
    Yá American no viene en MD-11 y Air Europa desde 2 años viene regular, no charter.

    a llegado mas aerolíneas y nuevos vuelos y el pasado año el aeropuerto movió aprox. 2.5 millones de viajeros.

    For my comfort and safety, can you add a flight from Colorado Springs. I could use a non-stop. Of course I expect full meal service, double miles, free upgrade to first class, and my own parachute...

    How about service from Kankakee and Streator? I think its only fair...
