A DETRACTION FROM the momentum and “not a very good end to the activity that we have had going for us so far”.
This was the reaction of chairman of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) Sunil Chatrani to yesterday’s industrial action that temporarily shut down Barbados’ airport and seaport.
Soon after news that the Grantley Adams International Airport was shut down as workers there stopped work in solidarity with unionised colleagues at the Barbados Water Authority, Chatrani said while it was still too early to predict the full outcome, he believed it would hurt Barbados in the long run.
He spoke to the DAILY NATION at a time that British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, the main carriers due from the United Kingdom, were delayed and there was uncertainty as to whether they would arrive. (GC)
