Herrera International Airport (IATA: HEX, ICAO: MDHE) was located in Santo Domingo. The airport was the hub of most of the Dominican airlines before they closed and opened the La Isabela International Airport, also in Santo Domingo. The airport had connections to Puerto Rico, Cuba, others Caribbean islands. All domestic routes that operated from Herrera are now fly out of La Isabela.

History[edit]

The airport began commercial operations in 1973. The airport formally closed on February 22, 2006, and the airport was handed over to the military so they could block the runway.[1]

The flights are now moved to Las Americas Int'l Airport.
