Los Cabos International Airport seeking “Inclusive Tourism” designation
The director of the Los Cabos International Airport, Francisco Villaseñor, emphasized that the Los Cabos Air Terminal is also seeking this distinction.
It is a corporate process, the intention is to certify the airport. Right now we are in the process of preparing for them to come and do the evaluation, and we are already in the process; we hope that soon we will be able to inform them that we already have this certificate.
The purpose of the “Inclusive Tourism” label is to guarantee that tourist spaces, such as hotels, hospitals, restaurants and especially air terminals, comply with the necessary recommendations and standards to offer tourists a positive experience. Francisco Villaseñor pointed out that most international airports, including Los Cabos, comply with the requirements established by Sectur to obtain this seal of inclusion.
At the end of the day, the airport must comply with recommendations and standards that help us ensure that a passenger, especially one in a wheelchair, can move through the airport. There is a checklist that is perfectly defined by the Ministry of Tourism that we are working on, and most airports comply with it. It is simply to do the protocol act, come and check us. Then we wait for the recommendations of the entity that checks us.
According to SECTUR, a minimum score of 85 points is required to obtain the “Inclusive Tourism” label. It is expected that in the next few days representatives of the Federal Tourism Board will visit the Los Cabos International Airport to verify that it meets the established requirements.
