While announcing, Marsha Henderson cited that the St Kitts Tourism Authority has negotiated with Inter-Caribbean airways to initiate service from Barbados and Puerto Rico into St Kitts.
She added that the government of St Kitts and Nevis is on the path to uplift the country. Prior to the pandemic, the Caribbean was our second-largest source market.
She added that this market is driven by business travel, visiting friends and relatives, and Caribbean events such as CPL, Carnival, and music festivals. Regional travel has been impacted significantly as a result of inadequate airlift within the region due to the limitation of the existing regional carrier.

This has been a prime time for the people of our region. However, despite the adversity faced, your government has once again delivered,” said the Minister.
