By Zoila Palma: The air transport industry in Central America and the Dominican Republic lost 157 routes in 2020 due to COVID-19, Tico Times reports.
This means that 11,095 flights stopped operating.
The Central American Integration System (SICA) said that the routes lost are a consequence of mobility restrictions.
Although the region depends on international traffic, SICA did not detail the number of losses.
SICA is now collaborating with other entities to seek the recovery of the sector.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the airline sector in the region generated $27 billion and around 1.3 million jobs.
The airline sector generated $591 million in Belize in air transport alone.
The aviation industry is now adapting to health and safety measures including biosecurity measures at airports and flights.
