    Bavaro airport should be like Santo Domingo's second international airport Juaquin Balaguer (aka la isabela, aka el higuero), focused on small to medium aircrafts.

    One amenity that would be nice on all DR airports would be a shuttle bus between them.

    My 2 cents.....

    Why? Any new airport will have an FBO terminal just like PUJ.
    FIXED BASE OPERATOR (FBO) AND GENERAL AVIATION TERMINAL
    The Punta Cana International Airport has a FBO terminal for private and executive flights, which accommodates small airplanes, helicopters and executive jets for international and domestic flights. Located on the West side of the International Terminals, the FBO is a private terminal, aircraft parking apron which provides all standard general aviation staffed by airport operations personnel. In addition, we are currently offering a general aviation parking ramp and passenger terminal to be used for regional air taxi operators (tourist excursions etc.) . ***Both terminals are operated by the airport.
    The FBO Terminal is available from 07:00 – 21:00, 7 days a week with additional staff for off-hours operations.

    Nice to have, but the country is too big for shuttle buses everywhere.
    A shuttle type domestic airline would be welcomed by more demanding tourists. I mean those seeking to escape the all-inclusive ghettos.

    POP to Cabo Rojo for example, with 2 to 6 departures a day. The Jaragua National Park is a beauty, everyone has heard of Playa de las Aguilas, but how to get there? Driving 8 hours? This is not what people define as vacations.
    There are other similar, unexploited routes and opportunities. Somehow imagination and money can't meet here.

    Sure.And $50 minimum just to talk to them.(PUJ).
    No tie-down or parking service, hangarage or maintenance but to use the toilets or lounge still costs $50 (POP & PUJ) minimum.

    The $10 a day parking fee,aircraft less than 12500 lb, is paid separately.

    There are no free FBOs in the DR,whether you take fuel or not.Small private planes can't pay that sort of money.($108 so-called 'passenger handling fees 'in SDQ) or just for filing a flt plan.,getting the weather, a cup of coffee or asking for the fuel truck.
    Airport taxis are about double the town price also.

    If you want a shuttle or rental car you'd better get the platinum card sharpened.
