Antigua and Barbuda is preparing for increased air arrivals


Cabinet Notes: The Minister of Tourism reported that:


One US air carrier is willing to increase its flights to Antigua each week. The bookings have begun to increase, and the carrier is seeking to maximize its return at this time, he reported.


The carrier is also expecting LIAT to begin flying, and seeks to make the regional carrier an integral part of its future.


An Irish airline is moving to complete an agreement with Antigua that will witness the opening-up of a new market as tourism springs back to life.


The Ministry of Tourism has agreed to work with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Aviation to obtain official certification that passengers arriving Antigua on vessels have indeed received the inoculation by administration of a Covid-19 vaccine; by providing certification to ICAO, those arriving by air can have a digital record of their vaccination.


The same ought to be done for cruise passengers.


Several carriers are continuing to show interest in the destination ensuring that Antigua and Barbuda will be ready to receive passengers from its customary source markets as herd immunity is achieved in these countries, or infection rates decline markedly.
