Please see the note below from one of my colleagues, Bill Raymond. He was
following up on a discrepancy in our airport local-time lookup for one of
the airports our customers use. He verified that the island follows DST by
calling the airport authority there. Neither of us knows the start and end
dates for DST, though.

We recently integrated the timezone DB into our flight-planning site and
it's working out very well. We've also been using worldtimeengine.com, which
is great for obtaining timezone information using latitude and longitude.
