Universal Aviation Dominican Republic, a member of Universal Aviation, is expanding its footprint in the Dominican Republic to an additional six airports.
Through a newly signed commercial agreement with Assist Air, a member of the Caribbean Holding Group, Universal Aviation’s ground handling support services for corporate and private aviation operators is expanded to six airports in the Dominican Republic; Punta Cana (MDPC), Samaná (MDCY), Santo Domingo (MDSD), Santiago (MDST), Puerto Plata (MDPP), and Barahona (MDBH). These are in addition to La Romana and Joaquin Balaguer where Universal Aviation Dominican Republic has been operating since 2016.
“We are thrilled to work with Assist Air and Aviam to now be able to provide the highest levels of standards and service for business aviation operators at even more locations within the Dominican Republic,” said Greg Evans, Chairman, Universal.
The company will also be opening a new Operations Control Center at Santo Domingo Airport (MDJB).
“Through our venture with Assist Air, we will create a completely new experience on the ground at arrival, but the enhancement in our customers’ experience will begin before that thanks to our new Ops Control Center,” said Adolfo Aragon, senior vice president, Latin America and Caribbean, Universal. “The new ops center, which will be opening this December, will lower operators’ risk and stress by coordinating all their needs in the Dominican Republic in one location, including permits, ground support, catering and transportation.”
