The island of St. Kitts is “ready to welcome visitors” after escaping the wrath of Hurricane Irma.

The island’s airport, cruise port and all tourism providers are “open and resuming normal operations,” the island’s tourist board said in a statement.

St. Kitts was “fortunate to be virtually unscathed by Hurricane Irma,” officials said.

American Airlines has already resumed its Saturday flights from JFK, while Seaborne Airlines was set to resume its daily nonstop flights from San Juan on Saturday.

“All hotels and resorts are fully operational and the Park Hyatt St. Kitts remains on scheduled to debut Nov. 1,” the tourism board said.

“We are thrilled to get back to business as usual and ready to welcome visitors,” said St. Kitts Tourism Minister Lindsay Grant. “For those who planning to travel to island, we look forward to providing a world-class experience and all the warm Kittitian hospitality for which we have become known.”

Cruise lines have also resumed port calls to St. Kitts, with four ships set to dock at Port Zante in the coming week.
