120 days have gone by. They have allowed to reflect, restructure and relearn how to wait.
The aviation industry in Portugal, to this day, has only reestablished 25% of its routes compared to before the pandemic. Most of the routes are ethnic. International tourism, with which we work, is resuming very slowly due to the constraints imposed by many countries. How people will travel in the near future is still uncertain.
We maintain a strong concern in our social responsibility in the Covid-19 era: complying with the law. Complying with all security and hygiene requirements. For our safety and the safety of our passengers.
While witnessing a slow upturn, the parallel market - which does not follow the law therefore without costs or commitments - is gaining ground. Lowering prices must not be the strategy taken. Undeclared commissions must be audited and heavily punished.
Fair and reasonable prices considering the new costs undertaken should be the practice.
I therefore appeal to the partners that work with 100rumos - don’t be conniving with unlawfulness. Let us be supportive of one another and we can at least achieve survival.
Portugal awaits for you. 100rumos awaits you.
