The airport, which opened in December 2000, is about 68 miles (110km) from the capital, Santo Domingo. The single terminal is built in the style of an old sugar mill.

The current La Romana airport replaced an earlier La Romana airport (same name, same IATA), which was located south of the Zona Franca, on the south western side of Casa de Campo, which was approximately at . The earlier airport serviced (aside from private planes) one daily American Airlines flight from Miami, served by a Boeing 727, and a couple of American Eagle flights.

The Airport receives flights from the United States, Canada and Europe. Other flights come from other Caribbean islands like Puerto Rico and Cuba.

The airport consists of a main terminal with 4 modern gates. It has facilities for passengers and for the maintenance of aircraft. This airport receives most of the private flights in the country, principally businessmen that come to La Romana for a vacation in Casa de Campo.
