CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER of Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA), David Barrow, says Barbados has to step up its game if it is to remain competitive on the world market. Addressing the opening ceremony of Airport Week yesterday, Barrow said countries such as St Vincent and Antigua were set to improve their tourism offerings, and that could spell increased competition for Barbados. He said that St Vincent would soon open a new international airport and Antigua’s expansion plans included four boarding bridges. “The impact in St Vincent may be significant . . . . We may lose some traffic,” Barrow said.  (LK)
