Valued in Ecuador Establish Incentives for airlines to Open New Routes

Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa announced that, through an executive order, the government will implement a series of incentives for airlines to open new routes to enable the country to improve its connectivity with the world. The president mentioned, among others, the 40% reduction in fuel prices.

According to a report by the newspaper El Universo, the measure would be aimed at both local and foreign companies to develop routes as Los Angeles or Guayaquil-Quito-Berlin.

Upon learning of the announcement Guillermo Bernal, president of the Association of National Airlines, said he still did not know the details of these incentives, noting that while it is positive with regard to fuel costs, must be accompanied by actions such as promotion and advocacy to promote the new route.

Also, Bernal said they expect more details on the proposal before determining executive “if they come all airports or just those managed by the Directorate of Civil Aviation”, the only currently receiving fuel subsidy.
