NEWS Dominica renames international airport in honour of former leaders

Dominica’s Melville Hall Airport has been renamed to the Douglas-Charles Airport in order to celebrate and recognise two of the island’s most outstanding compatriots. Prime minister Roosevelt ‘Roosie’ Douglas died in October 2000, while former prime minister Pierre ‘Pierro’ Charles died in January 2004 but both dedicated their lives to improving the financial and economic situation in the country.
