President Luis Abinader said that due to the wave of the omicron virus, the destination of Puerto Plata has been affected by 20% as well as the North Coast, so agreements will be signed, in the framework of Fitur 2022, with airlines such as Air Transat, the Swiss airline and others from all over Europe which will be guaranteed support to continue bringing tourists to the Atlantic bride and Samaná.
With the declarations of the president, it is evident that the destination needs to recover the arrival of tourists by air, since in terms of cruise ship visitors the recovery has been gradual but steady, and more with the incorporation of the new port Taino Bay.
In this regard, the president of the Lifestyle Group, Markus Wischenbart, with a large presence in Puerto Plata, described as transcendent the participation of the Dominican Republic as a partner in the Fitur 2022 tourism fair, because it is the beginning of another step forward to strengthen the recovery of Dominican tourism.
“Fitur is historically the flag to initiate major negotiations and promotions of our destination. And as always from this great fair the Dominican tourism industry will come out stronger than ever,” he said.
He assured that from his business group no effort is spared to guarantee the total recovery of Dominican tourism, especially in the northern coast of the country.
