Universal Aviation, the worldwide ground support division of Universal Weather and Aviation Inc., is continuing to expand its network around the globe, opening Universal Aviation Dominican Republic at La Romana International Airport.
Based at the airport’s Executive Aviation Terminal, this is Universal’s 16th location in Latin America and its 65th worldwide, where it is now coordinating ground handling operations.
Greg Evans, chairman of Universal, said, “We remain committed to expanding our aviation network at high-risk, high-stress destinations where our customers operate their business aircraft the most. By opening Universal Aviation Dominican Republic, we can better ensure the success of our customers’ critical missions on the ground through pro-active trip management, versus relying solely on third-parties.”
Adolfo Aragon, senior vice president, Latin America and Caribbean, Universal, added, “The Dominican Republic has a fast-growing economy and is an increasingly popular destination for general aviation for both business and tourism, with a strong base of regional traffic in the Caribbean. We have an outstanding local team at La Romana, with many years of experience in the country, allowing us to facilitate difficult last-minute requests seamlessly.”
