Tourism leaders warn of a wave of layoffs as a result of the cancellations that Cancun hotels are experiencing these days, mainly of American travelers, after the United States Department of State began to require a negative Covid test to those who arrive from abroad (the United States will require travelers to test and recommend quarantine ).
This is what Abelardo Vara, president of the Cancún Group, has denounced, according to Galu. The hotel businessman and former president of the hotel association have pointed out that in the first three months of the year the occupations will not be as expected.
In this sense, he has warned that the first quarter could close with occupations of 45 percent, while last year they exceeded 80 percent. A situation that will deteriorate the business fabric and hoteliers will have no choice but to initiate layoffs.
The measure adopted by the new Biden government comes after tourism entrepreneurs were especially optimistic about registering more airplane seats from the United States at this time than a year ago, as reported by REPORTUR.mx
