During summer of 1998, Central Romana Corporation, Ltd., began the construction of La Romana International Airport Casa de Campo. The company, through its subsidiary, Airport Management Services, Ltd., inaugurated the airport on December 14th, 2000, at an approximate cost of over 100 million Dollars. The new international airport is a tropical modern airport, reminiscent of a sugarcane mill, the principal agro industrial product manufactured on the eastern planes of the Dominican Republic.
Central Romana Corporation, Ltd., and its subsidiaries were one of the pioneers of the development of tourism in the Dominican Republic.
All started with the construction and operation of the famous tourist complex Casa de Campo, located in the city of La Romana, which has modern golf courses, beaches, marine activities, tennis, equestrian sports, shooting facilities, shops, restaurants and many other features. It also owns Hotel Santo Domingo, operating in the city of Santo Domingo, along with other all-inclusive facilities located in the eastern region of the country.
Since the early 1970´s, the company owned and operated a small airport (LRM) located within the limits of Hotel Casa de Campo, in La Romana. The airport was used almost exclusively by American Airlines, American Eagle and for non-commercial private operations. Arrivals and departures of Hotel Casa de Campo’s airport exceeded the capacity of its design, not only because of the expansion derived from the integration of the company’s airport and its tourism infrastructure, but the considerable investment from local and foreign Hotel operators in facilities along the southeastern part of the country.
