Tourism sector impels for fewer restrictions on international flights to OIA

Published on : Wednesday, October 28, 2020

To the Orlando International Airport, it seems that the US President, Donald Trump holds the key to bringing more international flights back to the place.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Customs and Border Protection have recently raised their restrictions in regard to travel, which is something that tourism has been pushing for quite some time.
This raise in restriction means a lot of people from the countries the U.K. and Brazil could now fly in and invest money in Central Florida.


When the pandemic first started, the tourism industry of Central Florida and Orlando International Airport experienced a sudden halt.


The White House issued proclamations and the federal government stopped all international flights from Brazil, the U.K. and other countries in the Europe to about 15 airports all over the U.S. Orlando International wasn’t one of them.


Leaders of about 20 local businesses in July, including Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, appealed to the federal agencies to be added to the list of airports to receive these flights.


However in September 2020, the CDC raised its restrictions limiting the flights. Still OIA is not yet getting flights from those countries.


The airport explained that while flights are no longer stopped from landing, the White House announcement is still keeping out most non-U.S. citizens from those countries, so the airlines haven’t been willing to add flights.


This issue has been produced in front of the White House by the airport and others in the travel industry and they’re hopeful that the president will see any flights coming in would mean a major boost up to the economy.
