The migratory flow to the country continues to increase, especially at the International Airport of El Salvador, San Óscar Arnulfo Romero and Galdámez, whose facilities remain crowded with tourists and Salvadorans due to the festivities of the season.
To provide better service to travelers entering, leaving, and transferring at the airport, government authorities designated 1,600 collaborators, reported the Autonomous Port Executive Commission (CEPA).
According to the autonomous agency, among the personnel deployed are agents from the General Directorate of Customs (DGA), Migration and Immigration, the National Civil Police (PNC), as well as a team from the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG) and the Ministry of Health.
Likewise, CEPA reported that thousands of passengers have arrived in the country this Christmas and New Year’s season, seeking to enjoy the beaches, volcanoes, and gastronomy of El Salvador, and that they have been received at the aerodrome with artistic shows and festive ambience.
“Connationals and tourists continue to arrive to spend the New Year’s Eve festivities in our land,” the institution reiterated.
On the other hand, the full security that exists in the country, due to the Territorial Control Plan and the exception regime, has motivated more compatriots and foreign tourists to come and spend the year-end festivities in El Salvador.
Data from the Ministry of Tourism indicate that the arrival of 230,000 visitors is expected in December alone, of which 54% are estimated to arrive by air.
The tourism authorities estimate that they will close the year with 2.4 million visitors, a new projection that was established after the initial goal of 1.9 million was exceeded at the end of October. For next year, a reception of 2.7 million visitors between nationals and foreigners is expected.
