Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
February 21, 2008 (CUOPM)
The governing St. Kitts – Nevis Labour Party Administration’s thrust to boost tourism for stakeholders paid dividends with the inauguration of the weekly flight by Delta Airlines from the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta to the Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport in St. Kitts.
Passengers on the arrival flight were greeted by a Welcome Party headed by Minister of State for Tourism, Hon. Richard Skerritt; the pulsating sounds of the Cayon High School Steel Band, Mock Jumbies from Sandy Point, government officials and represntatives from the various sectors of the tourism industry.
Prime Minister Douglas said that the new Delta flight has been made possible because of “my own government’s vision and ongoing investment in the infrastructure for tourism development here in St. Kitts and Nevis.”
