Sandals eagerly awaits reopening of region
Sandals Resorts International could be one of the first major hotel chains in Barbados to reopen in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Deputy chairman Adam Stewart said he believed Barbados and many other Eastern Caribbean countries were on the verge of reopening their borders to commercial airline travel, having made inroads to prevent widespread movement of the deadly virus.
Stewart mentioned the end of June as a possible time when most Caribbean nations could resume regular airline traffic.
“It is contingent on when the countries nationally announce the reopening of their borders. In some countries that has just happened, and also when the airlift decides to come back. We are waiting but we know that St Lucia and Grenada should be open by June 4, so we will be operational there. The Bahamas has indicated that by July, but with no specific date, and Jamaica, Barbados, and Turks and Caicos are all on the cusp of making their announcements.” (BA)
