The Minister of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, David Collado, culminated on Tuesday in Manhattan a long agenda of meetings with major U.S. airlines and tour operators based in the United States, with whom he signed collaboration agreements and agreements of intent that seek to strengthen relations between the Dominican Republic and these companies in order to boost tourism in the country.
Collado signed a dozen agreements with these companies, with which he will explore the closing of promotions of vacation packages, marketing campaigns, opening of new routes, among other actions that will continue to promote the entry of American tourists to the Dominican Republic.

“The United States is our tourism ally par excellence, so we will continue to make every effort within our reach to further boost this market, which has been the main impetus we have had in the recovery of Dominican tourism during the pandemic,” explained Minister Collado.
The Ministry’s interest is to increase awareness of the Dominican Republic brand among the North American market, as well as to give visibility to the different options of Dominican tourist destinations in the different regions of the country, he said.
Collado explained to the different airlines and agencies that the Dominican Republic is the only destination in the region where 100% of the employees of the sector are fully vaccinated with two doses, with the lowest incidence rate of contagion in the tourist poles, making the country a safe destination to travel.
Among the companies that met with Minister Collado are JetBlue, American Airlines, Expedia, Travelocity, Signature, American Society of Travel Advisors, Flight Centre, Destination Weddings, Frontier, among others.
Minister Collado is completing a three-day work schedule in New York City where he also met with Dominican authorities in the city and will host a grand reception for New York State travel agents and tour operators.
