Barbados is primed for a significant increase in airlift to the island this month.
American Airlines is set to launch a wave of new and expanded flights to the destination.
“High-level airline partnerships have been a cornerstone effort for Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI). This strategy has led to increased airlift and the introduction of new gateways including Fort Lauderdale, Boston and Newark,” said said Petra Roach, U.S Director for Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. “We are ecstatic to see the increase in service from American Airlines, which will add millions in economic impact to Barbados.”
