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.”

The Vance Amory International Airport in Newcastle will be back in full operation by the end of today when the first American Airlines aircraft re commences flights into Nevis.

“It is my pleasure to tell you that a moment ago the fire truck at Vance W. Amory International Airport was returned to full service and we have already notified the Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority that is the official agency that will indicate to the world that we are back.
 
“At about 10 past 12 today we started the truck and gave it the first test run. We drove up and down the runway and then late on we had to fill the tank with 1,500 gallons of water and then we did another test run this time it was for us to shoot out the water and the foam to make sure that everything is working fine. So I am happy to announce that everything is working fine,” he said.
