La Romana Casa De Campo International Airport (IATA: LRM, ICAO: MDLR) is an international airport located on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic, adjacent to the tourist town of La Romana and the resort of Casa de Campo. It is located about 68 miles (110 km) from the capital, Santo Domingo. In 2008, 374,724 passengers passed through the airport.[4]

Overview[edit]

The current single terminal is built in the style of an old sugar mill. The airport consists of a main terminal with four modern gates. It has facilities for passengers and for the maintenance of aircraft. This airport receives most of the private flights in the country, principally businessmen that come to La Romana for vacations in Casa de Campo. The La Romana VOR/DME (Ident: LRN) and the La Romana non-directional beacon (Ident: LRN) are located on the field.[5][6]

History[edit]

The current airport opened in December 2000 and replaced the earlier La Romana Airport with the same name and IATA code. The old airport was on the Caribbean shore, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) southwest of the current airport.[7] The former airport served private planes and one daily American Airlines flight from Miami and a few American Eagle flights.
