St. Vincent Eyes Airlift Boost With New Airport


St. Vincent and the Grenadines has opened its new international airport, but it could be some time before regularly scheduled service hits the island.

The country debuted the airport with charter flights on Dynamic and Caribbean Airlines, but Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves says airlines “are likely to need about four to six months” before they can commit to regular service.

Gonsalves made the remarks while urging local hoteliers to work with the country’s tourism authority to take advantage of opportunities from new potential airlift.

He said the tourism authority was “continuing negotiations with international airlines, to secure commitments for regular international flights into the Argyle International Airport”
