Elevating the Skies: Dominica attends Routes Americas

Dominica’s delegation to Colombia

The Government of Dominica, through its Ministry of Tourism, announces its participation in the Routes Americas 2024 conference. Commencing today, March 19th, and extending through March 21st in Bogota, Colombia, this event marks Dominica’s pursuit of enhancing air connectivity and cementing its position as a leading green destination on the global stage.

Routes Americas 2024 stands as the foremost air service development forum in the Americas, uniting aviation and tourism professionals from across the globe. This year’s conference is set to host senior decision-makers from the region’s top airlines, airports, and tourism authorities. Dominica’s involvement underscores the nation’s commitment to fostering strategic partnerships and exploring opportunities to boost air access—a critical component of its tourism sector.

“Today, as we step into Routes Americas for the third time, our enthusiasm and optimism for what lies ahead are unprecedented. Our previous engagements have led to significant enhancements, such as the Douglas Charles Airport runway improvement, and demonstrated to our airline partners and stakeholders that Dominica is serious about its development and future prospects. As we continue to build on established connections and forge new ones, our focus
remains on creating a sustainable, accessible, and enriching experience for all who visit our shores. This dedication to relationship-building is the cornerstone of our success and will propel us toward even greater achievements, as we continue to invest in the new international airport, and other initiatives.” – Honourable Denise Charles Pemberton, Minister for Tourism.

Dominica’s delegation to Routes Americas 2024 includes Honourable Denise Charles-Pemberton, Minister for Tourism; Benoit Bardoille, CEO of Dominica Air and Seaport Authority (DASPA); Samuel Johnson, CEO of Dominica’s International Airport Development Company; Monelle Alexis, Communications and Public Relations Specialist for Discover Dominica Authority; and Kyanna Dyer, Miss Dominica 2024.

    Do we need all these people to attend a meeting knowing nothing will be taken back to elevate Dominica sky?
    Total waste of money and space.
    We could’ve had one person attend if so, and the conference be viewed on zoom so there can participate.
    This is all about touring on the back of tax payers. A trip for the team. 😝😝😝😝😝
    Wot a Dominica Looser party.

    What can Kyanna Dyer, Miss Dominica 2024, offer to this event other than a free trip?
    These guys are good at wasting money.
    Since the pandemic, we have cut our travel budget. Whereas I would jump on a plane to attend meetings, now most of my meetings are Zoom based. There is still a need for face to face meetings, but just traveling for the sake of traveling is not the best use of resources.

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 9 Thumb down 1

    These people are ignorant and foolish. At 7.9km, the world’s longest cable car is the spectacular Hon Thom in southern Vietnam. That’s 1.3km longer than the proposed Dominica cable car. SMH.
