THE RETURN OF BRITISH AIRWAYS TO ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA
Great news for Antigua and Barbuda as British Airways after 30 years of serving the island has officially relaunched its service from London Heathrow Airport departing six days a week from April to October. The carrier’s resumption comes as Antigua and Barbuda is included on the UK’s Green List of travel destinations. “The demand for holidays to Antigua and Barbuda has been immense, particularly with our inclusion on the UK’s Green List. This is an opportune trip to reach this key market in order to encourage bookings and visitation this summer and beyond,” said Cherrie Osborne, Director of Tourism UK & Europe for the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority. “The increase in airlift with British Airways is a very positive step for Antigua and Barbuda. The island is currently the number one destination in the Caribbean for BA and with additional flights running over summer and beyond, we are in a strong position to cater to the strong demand from one of our most important markets,” said Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Minister Charles Fernandez. In just over 5 hours you can reach the 365 sandy beaches, glistening coves, magnificent sunsets, and sheltered bays across this flourishing isle.
