BTA: Sandals good for airlift

Social Share

BARBADOS STANDS to benefit from having a hotel under the Sandals brand which, says chairman of the Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA) Adrian Elcock, will assist with the expansion of airlift from one of its major markets.
Speaking yesterday at the Radisson Aquatica Resort where the BTA launched the Barbados Official Travel Guide App, Elcock said Sandals had an extremely powerful pull for airlift and they recently received word of a potential opportunity for increasing airline seats out of one of Barbados’ markets based solely on Sandals’ presence here.
He said going into the winter tourist season there was some concern about airline capacity, but he gave the assurance there would be ample seats for visitors.
Speaking against the backdrop of American Airline’s announcement that it would be discontinuing flights out of John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport in New York from next month, Elcock said they were considering “a few options”, including a charter service.
