DELTA AIRLINES is back.
The news that the North American airline was resuming flights to Barbados in December was revealed during a Press conference this morning held by the Barbados Tourism Authority held at the Courtyard by Mariott hotel.
“Delta was in Barbados from the Atlanta hub from 2006 through 2011,” said Petra Roach, interim chief executive officer of the Barbados Tourism Authority.
“There were a number of reasons why that didn’t work in terms of connectivity . . . and these are all challenges that we have looked at and we have gone and negotiated with Delta in terms of having 19 cities that will be connecting through to that out-bound service.”
Roach added that Delta will also be flying out of the New York gateway on Thursdays and Saturday.
They will be operating twice per week on the route Atlanta/Barbados/NewYork and New York/Barbados/Atlanta, providing two flights per day. (SH-O)
