Tuesday, September 7 was the day set by Canadian authorities to lift restrictions on flights to the Dominican Republic and vice versa, after operations were affected by the pandemic. According to the Dominican ambassador to Canada, Michelle Cohen, expectations are high after guaranteeing the best levels of biosecurity to tourists, in a joint effort of the Dominican government and the private sector. Likewise, and following the guidelines of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Mirex) and the Ministry of Tourism (Mitur), the diplomat indicated, at the time, that the immunization plan of the Dominican Republic marks a leadership in the Caribbean and Latin American regions. Air Canada Vacation, AirTransat, WestJet, National Airline Council of Canada, Sunwing Travel Group, OWG Airlines, and the Tourism Promotion Offices (TPOs), among others, are expected to be ready for the reactivation of flights to the DR. “We are going to fill all those seats. In all the aforementioned meetings, we emphasized the importance for the Dominican government and the Canadian business sector of the safe reopening of the borders, in order to boost existing trade relations, favoring the business and investment climate and with a view to the economic recovery of both Canada and the Dominican Republic,” said the ambassador last August.
