Cabinet Notes: The Minister of Tourism made several forecasts about the number of passengers who are likely to enter Antigua and Barbuda for leisure.
One carrier anticipates that their line will bring 200,000 cruise passengers between June and December 2021.
Antigua will be required to establish a kind of bubble for disembarking cruise passengers, such that the vendors, shop owners, bus and taxi operators, workers at historic sites will all be vaccinated.
The same is expected of those who work at hotels—they will be required to be fully vaccinated in order to mix with co-workers and guests.
British Airways is planning to return to Antigua in full blast by having 4 flights each week, followed by 7 flights per week, and eventually increasing to 9 flights weekly. Virgin Atlantic will also increase its flights to the destination this year.
There is pent up demand for leisure travel, the Cabinet was told, and the passengers will return in large numbers as soon as the source-markets achieve herd immunity.
