A representation of the national executive committee of the Dominican Association of Hotels and Tourism (ASONAHORES), headed by its president David Llibre, visited the aeronautical complex of the Dominican Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC) in Punta Caucedo.
The directors of the tourism association toured the offices of the complex where the air navigation, operational safety and air traffic control areas of the IDAC operate, where they received explanations about the different operations that are carried out 24 hours a day to guarantee the safety of air traffic throughout the country.
The acting director general of the IDAC, Héctor Porcella, who led the guided tour, highlighted the strong links that unite tourism and civil aviation in the Dominican Republic, assuring that due to the country’s island status, the two sectors must act as a single body to fulfill their mission.
Porcella affirmed that civil aviation has been a key factor in the impressive rebound that Dominican tourism has experienced after the paralysis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Llibre said he was pleasantly surprised by the modern facilities and technological services operated by the IDAC to guarantee the growth of air traffic that has made possible the sustained development of tourism in the country.
ASONAHORES was also represented by executive vice president Andrés Marranzini, past president Luis Emilio Rodríguez Amiama; and directors Ramón Roselló, Omar Cepeda, Raúl López, Mónica Infante and executive Sandra Piña.
Porcella was accompanied by the director of Flight Standards, Pedro Alberto Piña; the director of Operational Safety Surveillance, Gender Castro; the person in charge of air traffic, Eduardo Tejada; the director of the Higher Academy of Aeronautical Sciences, Clara Fernández; and the director of Communication and Public Relations of the IDAC, Luis José Chávez.
