Barbados' winter tourist season is expected to be much better than last year in terms of flights says Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy.

Giving Barbadians an update on the sector during a media conference at Ocean 2 hotel today, the minister said more flights were scheduled from the island’s main market, Britain, while growth in the North American markets via JetBlue, WestJet and Air Canada was expected to continue.

He added that having recently attended the World Travel Market (WTM), predictions for Barbados this winter were encouraging.

After being in office for years, all Minister Sealy can tell us is that people from the three countries we have always been dependent on (US, UK, Canada) might show up.

We need a tourism minister who is capable of opening up new markets for Barbados. Until we get one, Barbados' tourism industry will remain stagnant.
