British Airways steps up flights to Barbados

Barbados will soon be gearing up to welcome additional holiday-makers looking for sunshine, as British Airways has announced an increase from ten to 12 flights per week, demonstrating the UK’s long-standing interest in travel to the island.

These two extra flights will run from November 30th, 2014 through to February 29th, 2015, with the potential to bring up to nearly 600 extra passengers to the island per week.

The increase reflects the island’s strong forward bookings, and a marked confidence in the destination to fill extra seats with visitors from the UK.

Petra Roach, vice president sales and marketing at the Barbados Tourism Authority, said: “We are really pleased with the news that British Airways will be offering extra services over the next winter season and we will be working assiduously with our travel partners to ensure that we maximise on this additional capacity - 2014 promises to be a positive year and we appreciate the confidence that BA has instilled in one of their top long haul destinations.”
