Tourism is a measure to mitigate the effects of war

Santo Domingo.- When the situation becomes more difficult, the Ministry of Tourism is preparing to analyze the situation and the damage that the war in Ukraine may cause to tourism in the Dominican Republic.

For members of the tourism sector, canceling flights to countries like this is a blow to tourism growth.

According to Central Bank statistics, more than 49,500 Russian tourists arrived in the country in January alone.

At least 3,000 Ukrainian tourists are stranded in the country due to flight cancellations and about 1,200 of those tourists have no accommodations, a number that will increase as the days go by, when their hotel reservations are exhausted.

The tourism sector authorities indicated that they would call the press this afternoon to announce the results of the meeting.

After the start of the Russian attack on Ukraine, six days ago, the airspace of that country was closed; Russia faced sanctions that included closing the airspace of European countries and Canada, blocking roads to the Caribbean.

For this reason, the airline “Aeroflot” announced on Monday that it will cancel its flights to the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Mexico, Cuba and the United States until tomorrow, Wednesday.
