Punta Cana Airport to Get New Terminal


In preparation for increased demand, the Punta Cana Group has announced that a new terminal is being added at Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) with capacity to receive the largest passenger airliner in the world, the double-deck Airbus A380.

The new terminal at PUJ will have seven doors and will have capacity to receive up to 26 airplanes simultaneously. It will be air-conditioned and offer indoor deplaning.

Punta Cana International Airport is the ninth largest in travel volume in Latin America. In 2013, it moved five million passengers, including 2.5 million non-residents. Forecasted growth is over 10% a month for 2014. Sixty per cent of all travellers flying to the Dominican Republic arrive via the Punta Cana International Airport.
