“The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) voices our solidarity with the resilient people of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic as they recover from the effects of Hurricane Fiona, which initially made landfall in Puerto Rico’s south-western region, causing flooding in remote and rural areas of the island, before affecting the eastern part of the Dominican Republic.
“As reported, the main airport, Luis Muñoz Marín Airport in San Juan (SJU), has already reopened and we have full confidence in the ability of the people of Puerto Rico to restore normalcy in their beautiful territory.
“We are committed to hosting both the inaugural CHTA Caribbean Travel Forum and the 40th Caribbean Travel Marketplace in San Juan, October 3-5, 2022, and look forward to seeing our friends and business associates at the dynamic face-to-face sessions planned for the event.
“CHTA also extends our prayers and support to those who have been impacted, including the island of Guadeloupe, and others in the storm’s path.
“While a small part of the Caribbean has been directly affected by the storm, most of the region’s 30 destinations have not been impacted and we anticipate those which have will be welcoming visitors in the coming days.”
