Collado said that these institutions are working together to better act and increase security in a positive way in the country.
The Dominican Republic intends to sign the Open Skies Treaty with the United States in early 2023, said Tourism Minister David Collado.
He expressed that they had a meeting with the State Department of that country recently in which these issues were discussed.
According to the U.S. Embassy, with an aviation agreement under the Open Skies policy, the Dominican Republic can reach more destinations without a stopover in the U.S., and Dominican airlines can provide more affordable, convenient and efficient services to consumers by minimizing limitations on airline decisions on routes, number of flights and airline partnerships.
Collado offered these details in a press conference to announce that they will strengthen security in tourist areas and highway traffic for the end-of-year festivities.
Collado said that this month there have been no reports of crime incidents in airports or tourist areas.
He highlighted as historic the existence of a work table together with the directors of the National Police, Major General Eduardo Alberto Then; of the Tourism Police (Politur), General Minoru Matsunaga; of Transit and Land Transportation Security (Digesett), Brigadier General Ramón Guzmán Peralta; of the Specialized Body for Airport and Civil Aviation Security (CESAC), Floreal Suárez and the president of the National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD), José Cabrera Ulloa.
He said that these institutions are working together to better act and increase security in a positive way in the country.
He added that record numbers are expected at the end of December and more than seven million tourists, as all airports are operating at maximum capacity, despite the winter storm situations in the United States and Canada, the main tourist emitters.
