The government is predicting that Antigua and Barbuda will welcome 6,000 new visitors to its shores next year. According to the Minister of Tourism, Charles “Max” Fernandez, the local tourism industry will realise this boost due to the arrival of 120 Italian passengers weekly via the Blue Panorama charter flight. He added that the increase would be as a result of the commencement of Vera Tour operations in Antigua and Barbuda.
The Star Fish Jolly Beach Resort also stands to benefit from the new arrangement, with 75 rooms booked each week to accommodate the visitors. The partnership will see the United Taxi Association charged with the responsibility of being the official transfer agent. The Italian market continues to be the second largest European Market for Antigua and Barbuda, and has shown significant growth since the re-launch of the Blue Panorama charter flight in December 2015.
