VINCI Airports opens new freight terminal at Las Américas Airport

VINCI Airports has opened a new freight terminal at Las Américas Airport in the Dominican Republic.

VINCI Airports has opened a new freight terminal at Las Américas Airport in the Dominican Republic.

The new terminal, built by VINCI Construction Grands Projects, is expected to support Dominican exports and help in creating a commercial hub.

The new 6,800m² warehouse also centralises freight movement operations by bringing together all associated organisations under the same building.

In addition, the site features a commercial building with banking services, offices, counters for customs officers, administrative facilities and restaurants.

The terminal is designed to be an environmentally friendly facility that will recycle and reuse all its waste and optimise energy and water consumption. The site will be powered by the photovoltaic panels that VINCI Airports installed last year.

VINCI Airports chairman and VINCI Concessions CEO Nicolas Notebaert said: “Rapid and reliable aviation capabilities are critical for export-led economies. VINCI Airports is proud to continue its partnership with the Dominican Republic with this new freight terminal serving the capital.

“It will support the country’s momentum by creating a new commercial hub for the Caribbean.”

The Las Américas International Airport is located in Punta Caucedo and serves the capital region of Santo Domingo.

The airport has also initiated an investment programme that involves extending the atrium in the passenger terminal, as well as upgrading immigration and security departments’ premises. The works are set to complete next year.

As an airport operator, VINCI Airports has held the concession for six airports in the country since 2016.

Last month, the company completed modernisation works at Toulon Hyères Airport in France.
