Universal Aviation, the worldwide ground support division of Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. (exhibit #2611), announced the continued expansion of its global network with the opening of Universal Aviation Dominican Republic at La Romana International Airport (MDLR).

Based at the MDLR Executive Aviation Terminal, Universal Aviation Dominican Republic is the network's 18th location in Latin America and the Caribbean and its 65th location worldwide.

"We remain committed to expanding our Universal Aviation network at high-risk, high-stress destinations where our customers operate their business aircraft to most," said Greg Evans, Chairman, Universal®. "By opening Universal Aviation Dominican Republic, we can better ensure the success of our customers' critical missions on the ground through pro-active trip management, versus relying solely on third-parties."

Universal Aviation Dominican Republic is open now and actively coordinating ground handling operations at MDLR, including managing arrangements and facilitating any changes or last-minute requests.

"The Dominican Republic has a fast growing economy and is an increasingly popular destination for general aviation for both business and tourism, with a strong base of regional traffic in the Caribbean," said Adolfo Aragon, Senior Vice President, Latin America and Caribbean, Universal. "We have an outstanding local team at MDLR, with many years of experience in the country, allowing us to facilitate difficult last-minute requests seamlessly."
