Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, has announced that based on advice given by LIAT, the airline will begin commercial flights at the Douglas Charles Airport.

He said LIAT’s technical team arrived at the airport, which was severely damaged by Tropical Storm Erika, on Tuesday to set up its computer system since the terminal building now has electricity and there is internet connection.

Prime Minister Skerritt said progress is being made in reconstructing the island after Erika, although it will take a long time.

According to the Dominica News Online, initial estimates show that it will take about $39.5-million to restore the Douglas Charles Airport to full functionality.
