Tobago Welcomes Additional Airlift for the Winter Season

Posted by Caribbean World Magazine on 13 April 2014 | 0 Comments

As of October 26th, two additional BA flights will operate via Antigua to the island of Tobago, increasing capacity on the route by 100% to meet demand. This is closely followed by an additional direct weekly Monarch Airlines flight, which commences on December 16th 2014.

The additional airlift will offer holidaymakers and those returning home to visit friends and family a far wider itinerary choice. The increase will also make twin centre Caribbean stays far easier and couples looking to travel for their honeymoon will benefit from being able to jet off straight after a weekend wedding. Foreign investment and room stock growth are also a priority for the island and will certainly see a boost into 2015 with this extra airlift encouraging product growth to make Tobago even more appealing as a destination choice.

Comments Deputy Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly and Secretary of Tourism and Transportation, Assemblyman Tracy Davidson-Celestine: “The UK is receptive to Tobago as a holiday destination and this additional airlift is a testament to the success of the route to date and our future plans to encourage tourism growth to the island. These flights are fantastic for our agent and tour operator network, offering far greater scope for itinerary choice and therefore a wider variety of selling options. We look forward to working closely with them in the run up to flight commencement to ensure that this venture is a success.”
