The Quintana Roo Tourism Board, led by Darío Flota, together with ASUR executives, continues to hold meetings with representatives of U.S. airlines, with whom they are sharing information related to the health prevention actions being carried out in the state.
“We are still in close communication with the airlines to dispel their doubts and share all available information with them, such as access to the tests required by some countries to re-enter their territory; we generate confidence in them thanks to the actions carried out in the state with the Mexican Caribbean Clean & Safe Check Certification, in addition to the effort made by the private initiative to provide the tests, both PCR and antigen, even within their hotels,” said Darío Flota, director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Board.
