New airlift set to boost tourism to Barbados
NEW YORK, USA, November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Exceptional Villas who are the leading luxury global vacation rentals experts to Barbados welcomed the recent announcement by American Airlines which stated that they are increasing their airlift to Barbados for the coming season. Commencing on December 19th, they will operate a daily service from Charlotte which is one of their main hubs. This service will operate until April 2nd. They intend to recommence the service in the summer between June 6th and August 19th which will give an additional boost to the island during the less busy summer season.
Additionally, American Airlines have announced that they are increasing the number of daily flights from Miami. Between December 19th and April 2nd and between June 6th and August 19th, there will be three flights daily on the popular route. Outside of this period, there will be 2 daily scheduled services.
When it comes to tourist numbers to the island, Great Britain is the leader with 33.3 percent of the market. Britain continues to have very extensive airlift from both London and Manchester. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic operate daily services to the island, and in peak season, British Airways operates two flights per day. In addition, Thomas Cook has commenced a twice-weekly flight from Gatwick to The Grantley Adams International Airport which has provided an additional boost to tourism on the island. The United States closely follows Great Britain with a 29% share of the business to Barbados.
The Canadian market continues to grow and currently contributes 15% of the travelers to Barbados. Canadians love to leave their cold shores for the paradise island of Barbados in the winter months, and the ease of access is an important consideration for them. There are currently non-top flights with Air Canada and West jet from Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax and in fact, Air Canada has increased its airlift to 3 flights per week in the high season from Montreal.
Latin America is another market which is experiencing increased visitor numbers to Barbados. The increase in the market has been greatly helped by the introduction of Copa Airlines of a twice-weekly flight between Panama and Barbados.
Barbados has always been a popular and a very fashionable destination partly due to the fact that it was the only island in the world that Concorde had a scheduled flight to in the seventies and eighties. In recent years the increase in luxury vacation rental properties and hotels, especially on the West Coast, has really helped to maintain and enhance its reputation as the number one luxury island in the Caribbean. Owner and CEO of Exceptional Villas said “we really welcome the additional airlift to Barbados as well as the addition of so many luxury rental properties” Barbados really is the perfect Paradise island providing a wonderful combination between some the world’s best beaches, culture, sport, and history.
