The director of the government airport department, Andres Vanderhorst has said that the government has plans to invest US$2.5 million (approximately RD$120 million) in the construction or improvement of airports nationwide. This includes the construction of terminals in Constanza, Monte Cristi, Pedernales (Cabo Rojo), Dajabon, Jimani and Samana.
He announced that Constanza's airport will be used for exporting fruit, vegetables and flowers to the Caribbean islands, but that it would also cater to domestic flights for tourists from other destinations in the country. The Monte Cristi landing field is scheduled to reopen on 16 August.
