No ferry, higher airfares
“It’s unbelievable how the cost of airline tickets rose as soon as the maritime service was interrupted,” Gonzales said in a statement.
The San Juan-Santo Domingo route is set to resume May 3 with a state-of-the-art, 1,750 passenger-ship s that will feature 175 cabins, entertainment areas, duty free shop, restaurants and roll-on-roll off vehicle and container transport service.
