Elnuevodiario.com.ni reports that “… The short supply of flights and low demand of users in the Nicaraguan market has made fares more expensive. In 2014 only 1.3 million visitors were received. ” On the other hand, in regard to domestic flights just one company is covering this low demand.

Leonardo Torres, president of the Nicaraguan Chamber of Small and Medium Tourism Enterprises, added, “… In order to resolve the problem intraregionally and for there to be cheap flights, Nicaragua needs to establish more connections in the region. ” “… In turn, it needs to establish direct flights to Europe. ”
