The implementation of a preferential tourism corridor in the Peruvian capital Lima aims to enhance the country’s image as a safe destination in the world for foreign and domestic vistors as well as boosting international tourist arrivals.
“The above-mentioned corridor is planned to link the Jorge Chavez International Airport, located in Lima’s most western side, to a wide range of key hotels and lodging houses distributed along the nation’s capital,” said Magali Silva, Mincetur’s top executive.
Moreover, the minister noted the plan is intended to improve the traveling and movement of tourists who arrive in and depart from Peru’s busiest and largest international airport through the usage of leading-edge technology related to tourist safety.
“Our main goal is to ensure the security of the tourist when staying in Lima and, therefore, the plan is due to establish transport routes for a more comfortable and safer ride,” the high-level Ollanta Humala administration official told Andina news agency.
Within the framework of the plan, Silva said, the National Police is expected to make constant patrols to stave off crimes against visitors from within the country and abroad based on a control unit in charge of an integrated communications’ strategy.
Speaking at a handing over ceremony where her sector delivered a new fleet composed of 41 pick up trucks to the Interior minister, Daniel Urresti, Mincetur’s chief pointed out that an agreement on the above concern has been reached with the airport’s operator Lima Airport Partner (LAP)
“This newly-dispatched car fleet will ensure a better monitoring of the traveling of tourists in and around Lima,” Silva said, adding “The fleet will be deployed in a bid to immediately start implementing the preferential corridor”.
