Barbados will look forward to welcoming additional holiday-makers looking for some winter warmth and sunshine, as BA has announced an increase from 10 to 12 flights per week. Barbados remains a favourite destination for British holidaymakers.
The two extra flights will run from 30 November, 2014 to 29 February, 2015, and may bring nearly 600 extra passengers to the island per week.
Petra Roach, Vice President Sales & Marketing at the Barbados Tourism Authority, said: ‘We are really pleased with the news that British Airways will be offering extra services over the next winter season and we will be working assiduously with our travel partners to ensure that we maximise on this additional capacity – 2014 promises to be a positive year and we appreciate the confidence that BA has instilled in one of their top long haul destinations.’
For the past 60 years, Barbados has had a strong relationship with BA. The increase in services to Barbados marks BAs’ continuing commitment to the island and will serve as a welcome addition to increase inbound travel from the UK market.
