Melville Hall Airport (IATA: DOM, ICAO: TDPD) is an airport located on the northeast coast of Dominica, two miles (3 km) northwest of Marigot, it is about one hour away from the second largest city Portsmouth. It is one of only two airports in the island nation of Dominica, the other being Canefield Airport located three miles (5 km) northeast of Roseau. Night service to the airport has recently been approved after a series of tests and studies by the Eastern Caribbean Civil Aviation Authority and the International Civil Aviation Authority respectively.
The Melville Hall area was chosen as the site for Dominica's main airport in 1944, for it was the only place on the island with extensive flat land. It was only after the completion of the Transinsular Road from Belles to Marigot, in 1958, that work on the airport began. The facility opened on 22 November 1961, and was first served by Dakotas from BWIA.
In 2006 an airport expansion and upgrade program began which entailed the expansion of the terminal building to include a new departure lounge, customs and immigration section and check in area. The runway and apron was also extended and new night landing and navigational aids were installed. These enhancements had an extended completion date of mid-2010.
Night landings at the airport began on 20 September 2010; the first flight, from LIAT, flew from V.C. Bird International Airport in Antigua. The Netherlands Antilles' Winair and Venezuela's Conviasa will also serve night flights to Melville Hall.
