Night landing officially takes place in Dominica on Monday, September 20, 2010...
Monday, September 20, 2010 will now be recorded in Dominica’s history as the day air access into Dominica was enhanced significantly with the introduction of night landing at Melville Hall airport in Marigot. LIAT (Leeward Islands Air Transport) and WINAIR (Windward Island Airways) conducted inaugural flights into Melville Hall on Monday night officially commissioning night landing into Dominica.
The path to night landing began almost immediately following the Dominica labour party’s entry into government in 2000; the process began in 2001.
Hon. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, who was instrumental in securing the new facilities for Dominica, told those gathered at Melville Hall that September 20, 2010 represented the day when Dominica brought its air access to a higher level. cont./
