Dominican Republic seeks to become an air hub
The President of the Dominican Republic Luis Abinader and the Minister of Tourism David Collado held a meeting with representatives of the national airlines to turn the country into a distribution center with an air hub scheme.
The meeting focused on the facilities that the government would grant for Dominican airlines to establish their operations centers in the country, as well as their commitment to the Dominican State, the increase in tourism and the low cost of tickets for the benefit of travelers.
In the same meeting, the need to have facilities for airport service providers was specified, in order to guarantee the operations of the airlines. In this sense, the country is preparing to update existing Air Services Agreements and the negotiation of new agreements.
In this way, the Dominican Republic, which has already received more than 5 million tourists from January to August, seeks to increase the flow of visitors and enhance connectivity with other regions, becoming a distribution center for passengers and goods in a geographical location auspicious.
It should be noted that the arrival of tourists by air set a record last month, surpassing the records of 2018 and 2019.
