The Airlines Association (ALA) on Friday stated it’s concern with the rise in the price of jet fuel (avtur) and noted that its cost in Dominican Republic is the most expensive in the Caribbean region.
It cautions that if that price remains at its current level or increases, it will have a negative impact on the civil aviation and tourism sectors.
In that regard, the ALA said it agrees with the concern voiced by the Tourism Ministry and the country’s hoteliers and tourism business leaders grouped in ASONAHORES, on the high price of aircraft fuel.
The statement emailed by AILA contradicts Industry and Commerce ministry Ramon Fadul’s assertion that the high price won’t affect the local travel industry, because in his view the jet planes don’t fill up in the country’s airports.
