It was a banner year for St Kitts tourism in 2018, according to the latest data from the St Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority.

The country’s airport reported 149,871 passengers in 2018, compared to 140,337 in 2017, Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris said.

That represented growth of seven percent year over year.

That included an upsurge in flights coming to the island’s Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport, with an additional 315 flights and a total of 7,947 flights in the calendar year.

The island’s integral cruise sector also saw growth, with 1,103,571 passengers in 2018, up from 1,058,662 in 2017, Harris said.

St Kitts has gotten a major boost from the debut of the Park Hyatt St Kitts, which opened late in 2017.
