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. “On the basis of what our partners have been telling us, the winter will be an improvement on where it was last year. There were a number of very encouraging developments coming out of WTM,” Sealy said. (RJ) Full story in tomorrow's DAILY NATION
