According to ANATO, air connectivity is vital for Colombian tourism
"We cannot turn our backs on the airlines that have shortened the time to connect Colombians with national and international destinations," said Paula Cortés Calle, executive president of the Association
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about the affectation of all tourism companies. Currently, the activity of the aviation industry has been reduced, due to the closure of borders and the suspension of operations, which has caused an economic impact on airlines.
“In recent years, we have made progress in the connectivity of our country, managing to reach more and more destinations with the implementation of new routes. This has brought significant growth for domestic, inbound and outbound tourism. That is why we cannot drop the work that has been accomplished, ”said Paula Cortés Calle, ANATO's executive president.
In this regard, the union leader highlighted the Association's support for airlines: “We expect a speedy recovery for them. They are a fundamental part for the development of the work of Travel Agencies. We have worked hand in hand and today we are your first sales channel, but without them it is not possible to market the tourist products and services of our companies. We cannot turn our backs on the airlines, which have shortened the time to connect Colombians with national and international destinations”.
