Santo Domingo and Boca Chica in the Dominican Republic. The airport is most commonly referred to as "Las Américas International Airport", or locally,
Recently, the expressway leading from Santo Domingo to the airport (roughly 20 km east of the city center) was expanded and
modernised. The new expressway crosses a new suspension bridge which spans the Ozama River, connecting traffic into the city's
Elevated Freeway and Tunnel system onto the city's main street, Av. 27 de Febrero. A more scenic route following the coastal shore
provides beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea and of the city. This secondary road crosses the Ozama River by means of a floating
bridge, connecting traffic onto the Av. George Washington (el Malecón) which leads into the heart of the colonial city.
The new North Terminal is complete and open for operations. It can accommodate four Airbus A380s simultaneously. This new terminal has four gates
with boarding bridges, an air-conditioning system, and maintenance facilities for aircraft.
JetBlue Airways is the largest airline operating at Las Américas.
