He is a young man and I feel that I am a brother of his and in the name of this airline Conviasa and the Government of Venezuela,  I would like to tell you that I came to stay hoping that very soon we will be able to see Dominicans in Venezuela. Even though we were born in different places we can make little culture by exchanging our own cultures and the airline is a tool to achieve that.”In related news Minister of Public Works, Energy and Ports Honourable Rayburn Blackmoore, highlighted the benefits of the night landing facility at the airport which is credited to have transported two thousand seven hundred and thirty-three passengers into Dominica.The President of Conviasa Colonel Jesus Vinas addressing the ceremony through an interpreter.“I want to give the Dominican public and our well wishers alike overseas that notwithstanding all the skeptics including those who call themselves Citizens Forum for Good Governance as to our ability to really attract night flights at this facility.
