Tourism stakeholders were in celebratory mood last week when the expanded departure area encompassing Gates 14 and 16 at the Grantley Adams International Airport was officially opened.

Minister of Tourism Kerrie Symmonds did the ribbon-cutting honours and new players in tourism such as GAIA board chairman Vic Fernandes and chairman of Barbados Port Inc Senator Lisa Cummins were all there for the occasion. (GC)
