Central America “will be sold” to Europe

The Nicaraguan tourism entrepreneurs are convinced that if the countries of Central Europe are offered together as a multi-destination, increase the number of tourists from that side of the world.

According to Sylvia Levy, president of the National Chamber of Tourism of Nicaragua (Canatur), the common strategy should be to sell packages of visits to the regional level. “So you come back you more attractive, not to mention (the tourist) just going to Nicaragua, El Salvador or Guatemala only going to,” he says.

Nicaragua is already heading in this direction since Wednesday Canatur, the Nicaraguan Institute of Tourism (Intur) met with all turoperadoras the country to agree best promotion strategies in Europe.

“It is fitting well,” says the president of Canatur noting that the upcoming opening of the Rome flight to Managua, concrete efforts to achieve the sector’s direct connection with Europe.

The Italian airline Blue Panorama announced that from July will begin flying the route Rome-Havana-Managua. The expectation is that Blue Panorama make alliances with regional airlines Copa and Taca, so that they provide easy and low-cost connections for passengers to visit Central America.

“It is important that we preserve forever healthy competition but always at the same level and conditions that are to provide.” Silva Levy, president of Canatur

Sylvia Levy considers it important to attract more airlines to the country, current investments in expansion of the terminal and runway International Airport Augusto C. Sandino. In addition they have new airports such as Greytown, in San Juan de Nicaragua, and Ometepe.

The issue against, recognizes, is that it is possible to increase the price of airfares due to rising cost of fuel used by aircraft.
