On Monday, the Dominican government, acting through the Civil Aviation Board, made an important decision to resume passenger and cargo air operations between the Dominican Republic and Haiti. This decision followed an extraordinary session held the same day and takes immediate effect. President Luis Abinader confirmed this measure during an interview with LA Semanal con la Prensa.
This decision is outlined in a resolution known as JAC resolution 234-2023, signed by its president, José Ernesto Marte Piantini. The primary purpose of this extraordinary session was to review the measure provided by Resolution 191-2023, dated September 14, 2023. This earlier resolution, issued by the Civil Aviation Board, pertained to passenger and cargo air operations involving the Republic of Haiti.
According to the document, the JAC received specific instructions from the President and the National Security Council of the Dominican Republic. This was a response to the need for more flexibility in the measures imposed back in September.
